Protecting Your Driver’s License

In our modern society, the ability to drive is often critical to get to work, go to school and take care of one’s family. Driving allows you to go where you want, when you want  The loss of a driver’s license severely limits that freedom.

  • DUI arrest or conviction
  • Refusal to submit to an alcohol breath test

  • Medical or Age related reasons

License Revocation After a DUI Arrest

A person arrested for DUI faces two legal threats — a criminal proceeding and an administrative proceeding which could result in a license suspension from four months to three years! The California DMV will automatically revoke your license unless you request an administrative hearing within 10 calendar days of your arrest!

Many people make the mistake of either failing to request a hearing or attempting to represent themselves in the hearing. If a request is not made in time, the result is always a license suspension. Those who attempt to represent themselves face an almost certain license suspension because of the complex and highly technical nature of this proceeding, and they lose the opportunity to use the administrative hearing to strengthen their criminal case.

Casciola & Galambos, LLP has had great success representing clients in DMV administrative hearings. We can represent you in the administrative hearing with the goal of avoiding a license suspension. If your license is suspended, our lawyers will explain how to obtain a restricted driver’s license that will allow you to drive for work purposes, when it is legally possible.

Persons Under 21 Years of Age

In California, a person under the age of 21 who is convicted of any alcohol or drug offense, including minor in possession, drunk in public, and possession of marijuana, even if he or she was not driving at the time, faces a mandatory one year license revocation. Casciola & Galambos, LLP is an experienced DUI and criminal defense firm that has successfully represented hundreds of clients under the age of 21. We will use the facts and the law in an effort to protect your ability to drive or help you to seek earlier reinstatement of your license than you thought possible.
