Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) December 27, 2011
Sigal Law Group has a great deal of experience defending individuals facing DUI charges. Los Angeles DUI lawyer Vitaly B. Sigal uses his experience and knowledge to minimize the penalties of such serious charges for his clients.
According to Mr. Sigal, there are certain things people should know if they are arrested for DUI in Los Angeles, including:
- You must request a hearing with the California Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) within 10 days of the arrest. If you fail to do this, your driver’s license will automatically be suspended, and in some cases, revoked, after 30 days. It is important to note that all calendar days count, not just business days.
- There are two cases regarding a DUI — the DMV case and the criminal case. Even though the DMV case may seem informal, it is important to have an experienced DUI attorney present to ensure the best outcome in the case.
- Even a first DUI offense can carry heavy penalties, including hefty fines and jail time.
- There are several factors that are considered by a California prosecutor, including the blood alcohol content levels in the bloodstream at the time of the arrest, whether anyone was injured in the accident, whether property was damaged, the age of the accused, and the criminal history.
If you are arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, it is important that you hire an experienced Los Angeles DUI lawyer to fight for your rights. Mr. Sigal understands the laws governing DUI convictions and has the tools necessary to get your charges dismissed or reduced.
