Guiding Clients Through DUI Motor Vehicle Administration Hearings
If you are arrested on suspicion of DUI/DWI on the Eastern Shore of Maryland, you only have 10 days to request an administrative hearing to avoid any proposed suspension of your driving privilege based on a test result of .08 blood alcohol content (BAC) or greater, or a refusal to submit to a breath test. In these situations, it is wise to seek the help of a skilled DUI Motor Vehicle Administration (MVA) hearing attorney.
Motor Vehicle Administration hearings are serious matters. The outcome of this hearing will likely determine whether an individual will lose their driving privileges. Representing clients through MVA hearings is part of the Shipley Law Firm‘s defense practice. Our staff of dedicated professionals will guide you through the hearing request process and stand by your side every step of the way.
The Importance Of MVA Hearings
The MVA process, unfortunately, can escalate very quickly from something minor to something major. Most often, individuals can be suspended through either a failure to appear (FTA) or failure to pay (FTP) suspension. Something as minor as forgetting to pay a seat belt ticket could lead to a suspended license. You must act quickly to protect yourself.
If you are facing a DUI/DWI administrative hearing, you are also facing license suspension, revocation or even a referral to the Medical Advisory Board (MAB), which can suspend or revoke your license if you are determined to be medically unable to drive. We will prepare you for the MVA hearing and represent you before an administrative law judge.
Time is of the essence, do not wait to make decisions regarding the MVA. Missed deadlines equal loss of driving privileges.
