THE DMV AND COURT PROCESS ARE SEPARATE! MAKE SURE AND CONTACT A DUI ATTORNEY IMMEDIATELY TO REQUEST A DMV HEARING TO SAVE YOUR LICENSE.

After someone has been arrested for Vehicle Code Section 23152 (a) and or Vehicle Code Section 23152(b), commonly referred to as a DUI, they often have questions as to the Court Process:

Arraignment : when you appear in court for the first time on DUI charges, the charges against you will be read and you will answer to them – not guilty, guilty, no contest. The prosecuting attorney or judge will discuss whether bail should be required and how much. Both prosecuting and California criminal defense attorneys may make other motions at this time. In most misdemeanor DUI cases, if you have retained a DUI attorney or DUI lawyer, the DUI attorney can appear on your behalf without you having to be present. The DUI attorney can enter a plea of not guilty on your behalf or continue the arraignment depending upon the particular circumstances involved in each DUI case.
