Getting a restricted license while dealing with a San Diego DUI. DUI Defense Attorney lawyer explains about the process.

to me, San Diego county DUI cases is about hoop jumping.  In the vast majority of cases there is not going to be jail time.  What does happen is a person gets hit with a plethora of various punishments to equal the punishment of jail.  I have discussed these in previous articles.  Today, I want to focus around one of the most important hoops.....your driving privilege.  If you do this right our office can navigate you through the process.  Without the proper understanding and timing of everything you can find your self on hold for hours on the DMV hotline or making many wasted visits to the DMV.  All the while your license is suspended.  This alone makes this one of the tougher hoops to jump through.  Contact our office now to get started at (858) 751-4384.
