Sacramento Defense Lawyer Handling Multiple DUI Offenses
Any DUI can have negative and lasting consequences on many areas of your life. The second, third or fourth DUI can have devastating effects. Multiple DUI offenses can even become felonies. If you or a loved one is dealing with this situation, the best step you can take is to consult a qualified Sacramento defense attorney who knows how to handle multiple DUI offenses.
There is a limited window of time to act once you are charged with a subsequent DUI. I am Dick Margarita, and I can help you with whatever DUI circumstances you have. I bring more than 20 years of experience as an attorney and a former law enforcement background to every matter I handle.
Do Not Wait to Take Action
The key with DUI cases is to act quickly. After your arrest, you, the Client, must schedule with the California Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) an Administrative Per Se Hearing within 10 days of your arrest to determine the outcome of your driver’s license. You must request a hearing within 10 days. So, there is a limited amount of time. If that 10-day period lapses, you will lose your right to appeal and your license will be automatically suspended.
Upon contacting me, I will immediately schedule your Administrative Per Se hearing with the California Department of Motor Vehicles, tolling the 10-day time limit. Furthermore, I will schedule your hearing to coordinate your needs and individual situation.
When you hire me, I will immediately begin working on your behalf. I will set up an administrative hearing date, get all the police reports and documentation, and file the appropriate motions to contest the admissibility of the evidence.
This will give you extra time before the hearing. We will use that time to develop a strategy designed to obtain the best results possible. We can take actions to minimize the conduct, such as coordinating drug or alcohol treatment, or enroll in the DUI multiple offender program.
This early, proactive approach also allows me access to the evidence earlier, so I can begin preparing your criminal defense.
Handling Administrative License Hearings and Criminal Defense
The DUI defense and multiple DUI defense process involves the administrative license aspect and the actual criminal charge. I handle both sides simultaneously while protecting my clients’ rights and fighting for optimal results.
