What to do After Your First DUI Arrest

If you have been arrested for driving under the influence for the first time in the state of California, there are a few things you need to do.

First, immediately following your DUI arrest, try to remain as calm as possible. While it is easy to get stressed out and wonder what will happen next, it is important that you relax and take things one step at a time.

Next, you'll want to seek the help of an Orange County DUI lawyer immediately. Chances are, you don't have an understanding of the state's DUI laws or what you are up against. A DUI lawyer can review your case, inform you of your rights as a DUI arrestee and inform you of the next legal steps. Additionally, a DUI attorney can represent you in court and at your DMV hearing.

Finally, you need to request an administrative hearing with the California DMV within 10 days of your arrest. If you fail to request this hearing, your driver's license will automatically be suspended, so it's important to act fast.

If you have additional questions about what you need to do following a first-time DUI arrest, contact the Law Offices of Virginia L. Landry now to get answers.
