Riverside Attorney for DMV Hearings
DUI Defense Lawyer in Riverside, CA
Two separate legal processes begin with every arrest for driving under the influence (DUI) of drugs or alcohol: the criminal court case and the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) case. The criminal case will determine whether or not you are guilty of the charge and, if so, what your sentence will be. The DMV hearing will determine whether or not you will retain your license to drive.
At Blumenthal & Moore, our Riverside DUI defense lawyers can represent you in both the criminal case and the administrative (DMV) hearing. We recommend you get started on your defense immediately, as criminal matters like DUI charges and DMV hearings are extremely time sensitive.
Why do clients choose us?
- Proven results
- Personalized representation
- Cutting-edge defense strategies
- 100+ years of collective experience and knowledge

Don't Delay: Avoid Automatic License Suspension
To avoid an automatic 4-month license suspension for a first-offense DUI, it is necessary to request a DMV hearing within 10 days of your DUI arrest. We will represent you at that hearing and advocate for you to receive a restricted license after a mandatory 1-month license suspension. With a restricted license, you will be able to drive to and from work or school.
On a second DUI offense, if you refuse to take a blood alcohol test, your license will be suspended for one year without an opportunity for a restricted license. Our attorneys have successfully contested these license suspensions as well and can walk you through the process.
