    • License Revocation Process

      • Automatic Suspension: In many DUI cases, license suspension can be automatic, especially if you fail or refuse a breathalyzer test.
      • Duration of Suspension: The length of suspension varies based on factors such as the severity of the offense, BAC level, and history of prior offenses.

      DUI/DWAI Hearings

      • Right to a Hearing: You have the right to request a DMV hearing to challenge the suspension of your license. This must be done within a specific timeframe following your arrest.
      • Legal Representation: Having an attorney represent you at this hearing can significantly increase your chances of retaining your driving privileges.
