Frequently Asked Questions

What will happen to my driver’s license if I am charged with DUI?

When you are arrested for DUI in Riverside, the arresting officer will likely confiscate your driver’s license and give you a pink paper. That is when the clock starts. You have only 10 days to request a DMV hearing where your attorney can fight on your behalf so that you may be able to retain your driving privileges. This DMV case is separate from your criminal DUI case.

What is the punishment if I am convicted of DUI in Riverside?

If you are convicted of DUI, you face jail time, fines and a requirement to take alcohol education classes. The specific penalties you faced depend upon a number of factors involved with your case. Your BAC level at the time of your arrest, your criminal record, and whether you injured someone or left the scene of the accident are some of the factors that will be considered when determining a sentence for DUI. For more information about DUI consequences, visit our DUI sentencing page.

How can an attorney defend me if I am facing DUI charges?

Many people think that a DUI charge is impossible to defend, but that is not true. A DUI charge does not automatically mean you will be convicted, which is why you should not plead guilty without first speaking to an experienced Riverside attorney. Depending on the circumstances of your case, there are many valid defenses your attorney can use to fight these charges. Visit our DUI defenses page to view some of the best defenses we’ve used to help our clients avoid DUI convictions in the past.
