Question: I just got a DUI yesterday. I was driving w/o a license, blew a .18, and am 18 yrs old. I got the dui in Los Angeles, California with a court date at Airport court, but i live in Nevada…

Answer: A 0.18 BAC is high, but there may be some defenses that can come into play in your case to help limit or mitigate consequences. The fact that you are under 21 further complicates things. Contact me as soon as possible, as you only have 10 days from the date of your arrest to request a DMV hearing (to fight a license suspension from the DMV). An underage first offense DUI conviction in California comes with a 1 year license suspension…..
