While it might seem tempting to go it alone at your DMV refusal hearing, there are things that your NYC DWI attorney can do to make sure that you do everything that you can to advocate for your interests on your hearing day. Their experience may allow them to pick up on an issue or mistake in your case that can work to your favor. For example, if law enforcement violates your rights or if they don’t read you your chemical test rights, an experienced attorney can pick up on the error and point it out to the hearing officer.
In many cases, when you face a DMV refusal, you also face a criminal charge. Both a DMV refusal and a criminal charge such as drunk driving have serious consequences. Working with an attorney can help you view the case from all angles. In some cases, your attorney may be able to approach the state’s attorney with a plan for resolving both the DMV refusal and a drunk driving charge. Whether or not that’s an option in your case, your attorney can help you explore all of the avenues that may be available to you.
When your hearing day arrives, it’s normal to be nervous. You’re likely doing something that you’ve never done before, and the consequences can be steep. Having a lawyer with you means having someone who has the training and experience to help you. When you’re nervous, your attorney keeps their eyes and ears open. They can review the laws with you and make sure that you don’t miss any points that you should tell the judge.
At your DMV hearing, there’s a lot on the line. You and your family depend on the ability to drive in order to go to work, school and the many other places you need to go. The DMV hearing is only one potential consequence of a drunk driving arrest. Having an experienced attorney on your side can help you do everything that you can to represent your interests to the fullest extent that the law allows. They can make sure you leave no stone unturned as you fight for your rights.
