Working with a DUI Attorney
Get an Aggressive Legal Team on Your Side
When you are arrested for DUI in Bakersfield or Kern County, you will be
in danger of severe repercussions that can affect various areas of your
life. Depending on how you handle this situation and whether you involve
an attorney, you may face a criminal conviction and the administrative
suspension of your driver's license by the California Department of
Motor Vehicles (DMV).
DUI cases are unique in that they involve two separate proceedings: the
criminal court case and the DMV hearing. These operate independently from
one another and both may have a serious impact on the accused. The criminal
case addresses the criminal charges for driving under the influence. If
a driver is found guilty, he or she may face imprisonment, fines, community
service, probation and alcohol rehabilitation or treatment. The DMV hearing
addresses the suspension of the driver's license by the Department
of Motor Vehicles. This suspension will take place if the driver refused
or failed a breath test or blood test to determine his or her blood alcohol
