10-Day Rule for DUI Cases

After being arrested and charged with driving under the influence (DUI) you have a very limited amount of time to file a request for an administrative license hearing. Following an arrest or license suspension, you only have 10 days to act! It is important that you contact Richman Law Firm as soon as possible to ensure that your rights are protected and that your driving privileges are defended.

At my firm, I can take the time to review your case and ensure that we move immediately toward securing the best possible resolution to your case. Working with a Cumming criminal defense lawyer can make all the difference in the outcome of your criminal proceedings and your administrative hearing.

Preparing for Your Administrative License Hearing

Administrative hearings are separate from criminal proceedings and are not presided over by a criminal judge. During this hearing, evidence will be brought forth to support the suspension of your license, and you and your attorney will have a chance to speak regarding these findings. Without presenting a case at the administrative hearing, regardless of your innocence in the DUI case, your license will automatically be suspended for at least one year. If you failed to submit to a chemical test, breath, blood or urine test, or failed a test, you need to immediately contact Richman Law Firm.

It does not matter if this is your first, second or third DUI offense, you will have a chance to defend your driving privileges at an administrative hearing. Under Georgia law, your license appeal letter must be submitted with a $150 payment. Once the payment has been processed and the letter has been received, you will get a scheduled hearing date. At this hearing, your arresting officer, your attorney, yourself and administrative officials will come together to determine the future of your driving privileges. While the officer will utilize any evidence against you, you and your lawyer will have a chance to testify on behalf of your driver's license. It is important that you contact my firm to protect your future and defend your license. Get started today!
