When you've been arrested for a DUI, you will have a special hearing with the DMV where they can take away your driving privilege. This is separate from what the court does. A trained and skillful defense attorney can take you into this suspension hearing and argue on the facts about the arrest, possibly getting the suspension reversed or rescinded, and even setting the stage for its complete dismissal. Do yourself the favor of getting an attorney.  #lawfirm #criminaldefense #allwomenlawfirm #lamanolawoffice #LLO #lawyerup #fightyourcase #misdemeanor #felony #court #DUI #DWI #bayarea #oakland #contracosta #alameda #richmond #vallejo #sanfrancisco #hayward #dublin #fremont #contracosta #martinez #richmond visit us at www.LamanoLaw.com or call us (510) 852-0750 or (925) 495-0707What happens at a DMV hearing?
