A DUI (DWI, drunk driving) arrest can be a frightening, confusing situation - by design. At the traffic stop, the officer probably asked a lot of questions while asking you to perform field sobriety tests that required physical and mental dexterity at the same time. In addition, you were booked, tested for blood alcohol, and became a part of the criminal justice system for probably the only time in your life.

You need a DUI defense lawyer who knows the laws, the prosecutors, and the courts in the legal jurisdiction handling your arrest.

When you are arrested for DUI (DWI, drunk driving) in California, you have two battles to fight - one with the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) concerning your driving privileges and the other with the court concerning the criminal charges against you.

You must request a DMV hearing within 10 days of your DUI arrest or you will lose your driver's license.

As experienced DMV hearing lawyers, we can help you through the DMV process. The DMV can take away your license for four months for a first offense. We will guide you through the DMV hearing to try and avoid a license suspension. We will also seek other available options, such as a limited driver's license and a shorter revocation.

Our DMV hearing experience also includes helping people facing loss of license because of medical conditions or excessive points on their license.

Facing DUI charges in a criminal court takes careful preparation, effective trial skills, and a concern for the client.

At the Law Office of Donald M. Kelly, we take full advantage of the discovery process. We examine the evidence, talk to you about the arrest circumstances, and talk to witnesses. We work first for a dismissal, then for reduced charges. Our goal is to limit the damages and keep the consequences as low as possible.
