If you have been arrested for driving under the influence (DUI) in Sonoma County, do not delay. Seek legal representation immediately.
After your arrest, you have only 10 days within which to contact the local DMV’s Office of Driver Safety and request a license suspension hearing; otherwise, your right to a hearing will be lost and your driving privileges will be suspended.
A DUI is a serious offense with serious consequences. It can be charged as either a misdemeanor or felony, depending upon your driving record or whether there were serious injuries. Even first-time misdemeanor DUI cases can result in a jail sentence of six months, thousands of dollars in fines and penalties, license suspension, and installation of an “interlock” breath device on all vehicles you own.
If you have been arrested for DUI in Sonoma County, you need an experienced DUI trial attorney on your side to contest your suspension and prepare a defense against DUI charges. Time is of the essence. Call our office today to schedule a free consultation.
