When you are arrested and charged with a DUI, it may feel like your whole world is crashing down around you. You may suddenly find yourself without a driver's license and concerned about how this DUI will affect your career, your ability to provide for your family, your insurance rates, and your driving record. Luckily, with the right legal representation, you can avoid jail and may even be able to keep your driver's license.
Immediately after you are arrested, it is critical that you contact the Law Office of Nabiel C. Ahmed. Attorney Ahmed will be able to request a DMV hearing to challenge the suspension of your driver's license. You only have 10 days from the day you are arrested to request this hearing. At this hearing, Attorney Ahmed can also petition the court for a restricted license to be able to allow you to continue to drive to and from work, school, or medical appointments.
If you believe that you were arrested and charged falsely, Attorney Nabiel C. Ahmed can investigate your case closely to determine if your BAC was collected properly, if the breathalyzer was calibrated correctly, or if the police failed to follow correct procedures when stopping you or arresting you. In many cases, Nabiel C. Ahmed can have the charges against you dropped all together and can protect your driving record and your future.
Even if this is your first DUI, there are ways you can avoid having it negatively affect your driving record and your insurance rates. An experienced and skilled Oakland DUI attorney can review the details of your case and help build a strong defense against these charges.
