Protecting Clients From The Consequences Of A DUI Conviction

A conviction for driving under the influence (DUI) can have lifelong consequences. In addition to possibly losing your driver's license, you may face substantial fines and jail time. A criminal conviction may make it difficult to find employment, housing or get certain professional licenses. At the Bianco Law Firm, our experienced Visalia DUI defense lawyers know how to defend against these charges and will fight to minimize the potential punishments and consequences.

If you have been charged with a DUI, we are available to help. Contact our Fresno drunk driving defense attorneys online or call 559-429-5143 to schedule a meeting with a knowledgeable lawyer.

Representation In License Suspension Hearings

A DUI charge must be defended on two different fronts, one in criminal court and one in a license suspension hearing before the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV). A request for a license suspension hearing must be made within 10 days after the arrest. If this request is not made, you will have waived your rights and your license will be automatically suspended 30 days after the arrest.

Our Visalia DUI defense attorneys can provide experienced representation in DMV license suspension hearings. Due to the fact that there is a short period of time in which to request a hearing, it is important to speak with our lawyers as soon as possible after your arrest. We will fight to keep your license from being suspended or, at the very least, request a conditional work permit so you can still get to your job. After the DMV hearing, we can provide you with a strong criminal defense in court.

Criminal Court Representation

A DUI conviction may lead to heavy fines, jail time and the installation of an interlock ignition device in your vehicle. The potential consequences are more extreme if you are charged with felony DUI. A felony DUI charge occurs if you are convicted of DUI three or more times within 10 years or if the DUI results in an injury, regardless of the number of prior offenses.

With so much at stake, it is important to protect your rights. The lawyers at the Bianco Law Firm know how to build an aggressive DUI defense. We will evaluate the circumstances of your charge and provide you with the information you need to make an educated decision on whether to fight the charges.

DUI is not limited to drinking. You can also be charged with DUI even if you were taking legally prescribed medication. We can help guide you through the court process and will fight to minimize the consequences.
