Question: Will I get another charge if I cannot attend my Van Nuys DUI court date?

Answer: If there is a misdemeanor DUI charge, it is possible that a private retained attorney can appear on your behalf without you needing to be present in court. If it is a felony charge, you will need to be present regardless. In that situation, if you fail to show there will be a failure to appear charge and a bench warrant issued, and they will keep stacking up if you have several matters you are not appearing in court on. Feel free to contact me at 818-336-1DUI to discuss further. Regardless, You should have an attorney represent you on your case(s).
