Driver License Suspensions for a 2nd DUI

If you were arrested for a 2nd DUI in California, you are looking up to a 2 year suspension of your drivers license without the eligibility for a restricted license.  To avoid the possibility of a two year suspension of your drivers license due to a DUI charge, have an experienced 2nd DUI lawyer contact DMV on your behalf within the first 10 days of the arrest.  It is important to have your attorney and not you contact DMV because once the hearing is made, certain items of evidence, aka, discovery, must be immediately subpoenaed.  Failure to issue timely subpoenas may just be the reason your license will suspend for 2 solid years.

Should I hire a 2nd DUI Attorney for my 2nd DUI Case in California?

You need to protect yourself from the DA.  Anytime you’re looking at mandatory jail time for any criminal case, you need an experienced California 2nd DUI lawyer to represent you in court.  For a second offense DUI, hiring a second DUI lawyer is no different.

First, you must understand that although jail time is mandatory, it doesn’t mean alternatives to jail aren’t available for you.  However, the jail alternatives that are available for a 2nd DUI are far different then jail alternatives for other types of crimes.  Given that second DUIs are so specific, you’ll need an attorney who specifically focuses on 2nd DUI offenses in California to know what alternatives to jail are available for your 2nd DUI in California.

Please understand, alternatives for jail on a second DUI case aren’t automatic.  As a defendant, you don’t get to pick and choose which programs you may or may not want to do.  Instead, an experienced second DUI attorney will suggest you prep your cases by doing such peremptory damage control by completing Alcoholic Anonymous meetings prior to court, participating in the SCRAM program, and even enrolling early into your alcohol school.  This will show the judge that you’re serious about not re-offending.  Call a 2nd DUI lawyer immediately for more information on how to prep your case for a no jail time sentence.

Another benefit of hiring a 2nd DUI attorney is that for most 2nd DUI cases in California, your attorney can appear on your behalf without you ever having to take time off from your work and or your family to attend your court proceeding.  Lets face it, court is a slow and stressful  process.  Let the 2nd DUI attorneys at Aspen Law Group attend court in your stead.
