Working With A DUI Attorney

Get an Aggressive Legal Team on Your Side

When you are arrested for DUI in Bakersfield or Kern County, you will be in danger of severe penalties that can affect various aspects of your life. Depending on how you handle this situation and whether you choose to involve an attorney, you may face a criminal conviction and the administrative suspension of your driver’s license by the California Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV).

One of the unique aspects of DUI cases is that they involve two separate proceedings: the criminal court case and the DMV hearing. These operate independently from one another and each can have their own serious impact on the accused. The criminal case addresses the criminal charges for driving under the influence. If the driver is found guilty, he or she may face several harsh penalties, such as imprisonment, fines, probation, community service, and alcohol rehabilitation or treatment. The DMV hearing addresses the suspension of the driver’s license by the Department of Motor Vehicles. This suspension will take place if the driver refused or failed a breath test or blood test to determine his or her blood alcohol concentration.
