Question: I have a DUI court date in Van Nuys Court. Can I have the first court date transferred to san fernando court which is closer to where I live

Answer: If you have a Court date in Van Nuys for a DUI (ie. the citation states Van Nuys Court, and my guess it will be in Dept. 103 where most of their DUI arraignments take place), then that’s where you need to be. If you have a private attorney handling your case and you are charged with a misdemeanor DUI, than a private attorney can represent you without you having to be at the Court. Call me if you would like to discuss further.
