Overview of the DUI Process

The DUI process typically begins shortly after your arrest. Retaining a Coachella Valley DUI attorney at the outset ensures you have quality representation at all stages of your case:

  • DMV hearing. Have your Coachella Valley DUI attorney request this license revocation hearing within 10-days of your arrest or it is waived. Coachella Valley DUI attorneys routinely handle these hearings and have been successful in avoiding many license revocations for clients.

  • Arraignment. This is a brief court appearance with your Coachella Valley DUI attorney to enter a not guilty plea.

  • Discovery and investigation. Coachella Valley DUI attorneys will obtain evidence from the prosecutor and from their own investigation to develop defenses that may also lead to motions to dismiss or to exclude certain evidence. In most cases, Coachella Valley DUI lawyers negotiate satisfactory plea agreements.

  • Trial. If unresolved, your Coachella Valley DUI lawyer will defend you at trial.

Beating a DUI

DUI allegations generally depend on the subjective impressions and conclusions of the arresting officer and the results of chemical testing of your blood alcohol content. But these and other factors are carefully scrutinized by Coachella Valley DUI attorneys in presenting winning strategies:

  • Possible police misconduct during arrest and questioning

  • Whether a certain medical or physical condition may have influenced your arrest and BAC results

  • Bias, inconsistencies or errors in police testimony, records and reports

  • No driving, drinking after driving, and other defenses raised by your Coachella Valley DUI lawyer
