Florida Drivers Have Just 10 Days to Request a Hearing
Online PR News – 09-August-2013 – FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (August 8, 2013) – Driving Under the Influence (DUI) in Florida is a serious offense; drivers need to know their rights and be proactive. With three decades of experience, Fort Lauderdale attorney Guy Seligman has helped thousands of clients with suspended or revoked driver’s licenses due to DUI.
“Many people don’t realize that they have less than two weeks to request a Formal Review hearing from the State if they are arrested for DUI,” said Guy Seligman. “You must make a request within 10 days of your arrest; if not, your license will be automatically suspended for a minimum of six months and a minimum hardship period of 30 days.”
When an individual decides to contest the suspension of one’s drivers license after a DUI arrest, they should work with an experienced DUI license suspension lawyer. “Often evidence obtained at the administrative hearing can be used to your advantage when your DUI case goes to court,” said Guy. “Also, drivers should be aware that signing a ticket is never viewed as an admission of guilt by the court.”
Guy Seligman and his team work with suspended drivers to request a “Formal Review Hearing” and attend the hearing to aggressively fight against the suspended license charge. Guy can argue for reinstatement of full driving privileges, without the need for a hardship license or a hard time period of suspension.
“If you have lost your driver’s license due to DUI, there is a chance I can get it back for you,” said Seligman. “There are circumstances that allow you to get your license reinstated, so you need to move fast. You do not want to get caught driving with a suspended license. These are serious charges.”
