Administrative Per se License Suspensions and DMV Hearings

San Rafael, California, DMV Hearing Attorney

One of the consequences of a DUI/DWI arrest and other traffic violations in California is that you can lose your driver's license. If charged with driving under the influence, you need to act quickly to prevent your driver's license from being suspended. You have 10 days from your DUI arrest to request an administrative hearing with the California Department of Motor Vehicles. DMV hearings are independent of criminal court proceedings for the actual DUI.

At the Law Office of John Stanko, Inc., I am exclusively dedicated to criminal defense and DUI matters for clients throughout Northern California's San Francisco Bay Area. My office can help you obtain a DMV hearing and may be able to prevent the immediate loss of your driving privileges. Call 1-877-204-8900, or contact me online today for help from an experienced lawyer at your driver's license suspension hearing.

When I first called John Stanko for his services, he was professional and courteous. Although I was a first time client, he accommodated me to make the process as easy as possible. John was very prompt in returning my phone calls and followed up with my cases in a timely manner. I had several cases in two counties along with a suspended license case which John took care of.
