Lynnwood DUI Lawyer for DOL Hearings
Washington Licensing Hearings
If your license is being suspended due to a DUI charge you are required
to request a hearing with the Department of Licensing within 20 days of
having been arrested to challenge the suspension. Failure to request this
hearing could result in your license being automatically suspended. Hearings
can be requested by mail or online and require a $200 fee payable to the
Department of Licensing. The hearings are generally taped procedures often
done over the phone, although they can be done in person. The Hearing
Officer conducting the hearing is also the same person who will be making
the conclusions and rulings regarding the suspension. Clearly this makes
for a challenging situation.
Appearing before a state office can be an unnerving experience and the
outcome of a Department Of Licensing Hearing can adversely affect one's
life dramatically. If your license is being suspended or revoked contact
a Lynnwood criminal defense attorney for guidance on what to do regarding
your hearing. Although you can represent yourself in a DOL hearing, having
a lawyer present who not only knows criminal codes as well as the motor
vehicle codes is your assurance that you will be able to attain the most
favorable result possible for your circumstances.
Contact me at the
Law Office of Lance R. Fryrear to have someone backing you up and that has your interests at heart. What
happens at the hearing affects whether your license will be suspended
or not, and can affect your criminal charges as well. For example, we
might be able to subpoena the officer to the Department of Licensing Hearing
and get him to admit mistakes on tape under oath. This is not uncommon,
as many officers do not prepare for these types of informal phone hearings.
We can later use this tape to show the prosecutor that his or her case
is not as strong as they think.
