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
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!
