GAINESVILLE DUI LAWYER PROTECTING YOUR DRIVER'S LICENSE
If you have recently been arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, the Department of Driver's Services will be immediately notified and a pending case to suspend your driving privileges will be set to go into effect ten days after your arrest. Failing to contact the Department of Driver's Services will result in an automatic suspension of your driver's license after thirty days have passed.
All types of drunk driving charges will result in driver's license suspension if immediate legal action is not taken on behalf of the defendant. The only way to protect your driving privileges and record is to immediately involve a Gainesville DUI attorney. Hiring a drunk driving defense lawyer should be your main priority at a time such as this, as you have a lot to lose with the suspension of your driver's license.
