Attacking DUI Evidence Gathering

The aftermath of a DUI can be a difficult time. Receiving a DUI charge in Utah can be especially difficult considering you not only have to deal with the impending criminal case, but the suspension of your license as well. In Utah, your license becomes suspended immediately after your DUI arrest. Afterward, you must respond with a requested drivers license hearing within 10 days of the arrest. While this may seem like a hectic turnaround, a drivers license hearing is your only chance to maintain your license while your criminal DUI case is unresolved.

Driver’s licenses hearings can go many different ways and have the potential to better prepare you for the impending criminal DUI case, especially the manner in which evidence was gathered against you.  If you request a driver’s license hearing, you need to be working with an experienced Salt Lake City criminal defense attorney.
