In California a person charged only with a misdemeanor may be able to have their attorney make court appearances on their behalf without having to be present. So, if you are charged only with a misdemeanor of driving under the influence, and you hire the Law Office of Tony Sabala, with your permission, I may be able to attend all of your court dates without you ever having to appear in court. Consequently, you do not have to take time off from work or school to attend court because the Law Office of Tony Sabala will go to court on your behalf and resolve the DUI charges that you are facing.
Once an individual has been arrested for driving under the influence (DUI), the individual has 10 days from the date of the arrest to request a DMV Hearing. If the individual does not request a DMV Hearing, then the individual will be subject to an automatic license suspension 30 days after the individual's DUI arrest. At the Law Office of Tony Sabala, I take an aggressive approach to DMV license suspension hearings. It is my belief that it is in the client's best interest to schedule an in-person DMV hearing. At this hearing you can gain valuable information about your case by calling the arresting police officer as a witness to testify about the circumstances surrounding your arrest. From this testimony, you acquire facts not included in the police report that can be used to your advantage to resolve your criminal matter.
