Do I Need a Lawyer at a DMV Hearing?

If you have been charged with DUI or another traffic offense, chances are that you might have to face not only a court trial, but an administrative or DMV hearing as well. Even if you don’t have a lawyer for your court trial, you will be assigned a public defender to fight your charges and provide you with counsel. Unfortunately, during a DMV hearing, you are on your own, unless you hire a lawyer to make your case.

Benefits of Hiring a Lawyer for an Administrative Hearing

Administrative hearings are different than the criminal trial, and both have separate outcomes. The cases have no bearing on one another and the administrative hearing is solely focused on whether or not the DMV will suspend your driver’s license.

Showing up to the DMV for your hearing and simply pleading your cause will not get your license back, even if you have work to get to, children to take care of, or other commitments.

As harsh as that may sound, it’s important to understand that you need to make a legal case against the suspension of your license, not simply an emotional or needs-based case.

With a skilled attorney, you benefit from the following:

  • Help with filing the proper documents on time
  • Legal representation that fights for your rights
  • Support and counsel regarding your options

It is highly recommended that you take advantage of all the benefits that hiring an attorney offers. Not filing the proper papers or filing papers at the wrong time will result in license suspension. An attorney from Stein Law, LLC can investigate all aspects of your case and provide you with legal guidance.
