Let Us Advocate for You at the DMV Hearing!
At a DMV hearing, the Oakland DUI defense lawyers at the Law Office of Nabiel C. Ahmed will review all evidence against you, cross-examine any witnesses, and challenge the DMV's right to suspend your license. Even if you lose, a DMV hearing can be an invaluable tool for building your DUI defense, as it gives your attorney a chance to review the evidence and the prosecution's case against you. The prosecution also has a chance to decide whether to continue to press charges or dismiss your DUI charges altogether. If the case against you isn't solid, they may choose to dismiss your charges or offer you a plea deal.
If you win your DMV hearing, then you retain the right to keep your driver's license and your driving privileges. This alone can help you obtain a "better deal" with the prosecution and in many cases will lead to the dismissal of your DUI charges. It is important to remember, however, that winning your DMV hearing does not ensure that you will win your DUI case.
