How to Save Your Driver's License After a DUI Arrest

If you are arrested and charged with DUI, your driver's license will be confiscated. They will give you a temporary license, but you only have 10 days to appeal your license suspension. The most important thing you can do to save your driver's license is to hire a Fort Myers criminal defense attorney immediately after your arrest. At Calvo & Calvo, Attorneys at Law, we can give you the experienced DUI defense you need. One of our lawyers is a former prosecutor. Another is a Board Certified trial lawyer, one of only 7 in this area. We are committed to aggressively pursuing the best possible outcome for you.

It is important that your lawyer attend the administrative hearing on your driver's license suspension. We can challenge your license suspension on any grounds that apply and make sure that everything possible is done to help you keep your driving privileges. The hearing also gives us a chance to hear the evidence against you and the police officer's testimony before your trial takes place. If you are convicted of DUI, your license will be suspended for 180 days to one year for a first offense with no accident.

You will face thousands of dollars in fines and fees, and possible jail time. Penalties can skyrocket astronomically if there is an accident with property damage or injury involved, or a blood alcohol level higher than .15%. A conviction will go on your criminal record, and could have a serious effect on your future prospects for jobs, housing, and education. The importance of having a Fort Myers DUI lawyer in your corner cannot be overstated. Do not put your future at risk. Contact our firm for an aggressive defense against your charges.
