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.
