Many of my clients are embarrassed and ashamed after receiving a DUI. Most
have never been through an arrest before, and many are unsure what to
do next. You need to release those feelings as soon as possible and turn
your attention to ensuring the best possible outcome from here. As an
experienced and proven DUI attorney, I can assure you there are several
points of attack on your case, and actions we can take together to reduce
the severity of the punishments and costs, and in some cases work for
an outright dismissal.
You need to take immediate action – the DMV requires a request for
a hearing within 10 days or you will automatically have your driving privileges
suspended. The court case will proceed separately from the DMV case, and
you will need experienced help to guide you through the DUI process. The
first step is to schedule a complimentary consultation with me to discuss
the specifics of your DUI, and what can be done to achieve the best possible
result for you.
Was Anyone Injured In Your DUI Accident?
Being charged with a DUI in Temecula, Murrieta or any of the surrounding
areas can be a frightening experience for most of the people I speak with.
But if someone (other than yourself) was injured in any way as a result
of your driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs the stakes are
much higher. In almost every instance you will face felony DUI charges
that carry a genuine likelihood of jail time, significant fines and much
stiffer and longer lasting consequences. It is important to seek immediate
advice from an experienced and proven DUI attorney. You will need a strong
advocate who will investigate all of the circumstances surrounding your
DUI and the accident, and work to help bring a better resolution in your case.
At the Law Office of Nic Cocis & Associates, we work directly with
you from start to finish to make sure that you understand each step of
the process, all of the available options and the best actions that can
be taken to help reduce the consequences in your case.
In a DUI, the Court Process and DMV are two separate Issues
Many people are unaware that a DUI charge brings, in effect, two sets of
complex proceedings – one in a court of law, and one at the Department
of Motor Vehicles (DMV). Each process is totally separate, and the DMV
is not bound by any outcome or order of the court relating to the suspension
of your license or driving privileges. You must contact the DMV within
10 days of your DUI to request an APS hearing, and to begin the process
of working to establish driving privileges and the ultimate outcome of
your license. If you do not take appropriate action, the DMV will simply
suspend your driving privileges for four months or more. Protect your
rights and your driving privileges, and contact my office for a complimentary
consultation. It won't cost you anything to gain an understanding
of all the issues your facing and what will be required to get a positive
outcome in your case.
