Restricted License After a DUI
Orange County DUI Defense Lawyer Helps You Get a Restricted License
Will your driver’s license ultimately be suspended? We can’t tell at this point. The way we can determine this is by reviewing the actual police report from your arrest. However, at the Law Offices of Stull & Stull, we prepare your case for the best or worst outcome. In other words, we plan ahead for either possibility, prepare and hope for the best, but also have a plan in the rare case of the “worst” outcome.
If you do end up losing your license, but strategically control the DMV and courts to the extent available, you could, theoretically, end up being suspended for approximately 30 days. In this scenario, at the end of 30 days, you would be allowed to obtain a restricted license, which allows you to travel to and from work and to and from any court ordered rehabilitation programs or appointments.
The key is to coordinate the DMV suspension with your court case. It is a juggling act with the two agencies. However, if executed properly, it can benefit you greatly in the long run.
The key to making this process work is timing. We must coordinate the DMV suspension close in proximity to resolving your case. The problem that can arise with this strategy is that sometimes the District Attorney’s office files your DUI case late and the DMV wants to resolve your case earlier.
The Law Offices of Stull & Stull are very experienced in handling this issue and making sure that your license is not suspended any longer than it has to be.
