IMPORTANT: If you have no prior alcohol-related convictions or suspensions, you may be eligible for a hardship license immediately. It is critical that you take action within 10 days of the arrest, so call 386.222.6677 now.
In many circumstances, if you are arrested on suspicion of DUI, your driver's license will be confiscated. If you have lost your license due to a drunk driving charge or an accusation of driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, you only have 10 days from the date of your arrest to challenge an automatic suspension of your driving privileges at a DUI administrative hearing.
After a DUI arrest, your driver's license may be suspended. As long as you request an administrative hearing within 10 days, you can resume driving in the meantime, until your hearing. If you apply for a hardship license right away, however, you may have the option of continuing to drive with no disruptions, without having to fight your suspension at an administrative hearing.
Delgado & Romanik has ample experience representing clients whose driving privileges had been suspended after they were arrested on suspicion of drunk driving. We can help you decide whether to go through the administrative hearing or apply for a hardship driver's license right away. We can represent you at an administrative hearing, presenting evidence in your favor. In many cases, we help clients recover their driving privileges and preserve their clean record, with no crimes on the books, through aggressive representation at administrative hearings.
For certain clients, we may advise them to request a hardship license instead of going through an administrative hearing. We tell our clients when they are good candidates for hardship license application. We may give you this advice if you meet all the following criteria:
For professional drivers, an administrative hearing is critical to continue to be able to work. The loss of your commercial driver's license (CDL) will prevent you from earning a living, and it could mean the loss of your job. Don't risk this drastic penalty. Let us help you protect your rights, your driver's license and your job.
Representation in the DUI administrative suspension hearing is not a service the public defender's office or a court-appointed lawyer will provide. At Delgado & Romanik, our attorneys provide comprehensive, aggressive client advocacy for all aspects of a DUI charge.
