DUI / DWI Arrests in Lassen, Plumas, Sierra and Butte Counties

If you’ve been arrested for DUI / DWI anywhere in Lassen, Plumas, Sierra or Butte counties, including Quincy, Paradise, Chico or Yuba City, you need an expert California drunk driving lawyer fighting for your rights. The experienced Quincy DUI / DWI lawyers of The Kavinoky Law Firm will fight aggressively to protect you from fines, driver’s licenses suspensions, jail, and the other consequences of a drunk driving arrest.

A drunk driving arrest can happen to anyone – it’s whether you choose to aggressively fight your DUI / DWI arrest that sets you apart. However, it’s difficult to know what to do first, particularly if it’s your first experience with the criminal justice system. A knowledgeable Quincy DUI / DWI lawyer will guide you through every detail of your drunk driving case, including posting bail or getting released on your own recognizance (OR) and requesting a hearing with the California Department of Motor Vehicles.

After everything you’ve been through, requesting your DMV hearing is probably the last thing on your mind, but if you don’t request a hearing within 10 days of your DUI / DWI arrest, you risk the automatic suspension of your driver’s license.

Fortunately, it’s possible to successfully fight your DMV suspension just as you can challenge your DUI / DWI charge in criminal court. If your attorney can successfully challenge or exclude the state’s evidence at your DMV hearing, your license cannot be suspended in the DMV’s administrative action. However, the court can order your license suspended if you’re convicted in criminal court.

You are probably understandably nervous about facing a jury in criminal court, but learning about the court process can make the experience less nerve-wracking. Your Quincy DUI / DWI lawyer will start fighting your drunk driving charge long before the case goes to trial. Your attorney will analyze every aspect of the case against you, including your chemical test and your field sobriety test, to determine the most effective challenges.

You may wonder whether there is any point to fighting your Lassen, Plumas, Sierra or Butte county DUI / DWI charge, but you should know that a drunk driving charge doesn’t result in a slam-dunk conviction – not even close.
