Is having a DMV hearing for DUI a good idea

Question: This is my first time for a DUI in Van Nuys, CA. I was never arrested. Do you still have to make a DMV hearing in 10 days? Is this even a good idea?
Answer: Yes. It is a very good idea to timely request a DMV hearing to fight the drivers license (from the DMV). The chances of winning that hearing increase if you have an experienced attorney handle this hearing. If you have already been convicted of a DUI though, winning the DMV hearing will not reverse the drivers license suspension that is based on the DUI conviction. Call me to discuss further. You should have a DUI attorney handle the Criminal matter as well as the DMV hearing.
