License Suspension And Dmv Hearings Criminal Law Attorney Serving Throughout the East Bay Area

Walnut Creek License Suspension And Dmv Hearings 

Fighting for You to Keep Your Driver’s License

At the Law Office of Thomas F. McKenna in Walnut Creek, California, I provide advice about resolving any threat to your California driver’s license, whether you are facing suspension for drunk driving, the revocation of a commercial driver’s license, or have accumulated too many moving violations within a year. I can analyze your driving record, evaluate your current status, and try to find ways to resolve your problem.

Get Your License Suspension Set Aside

As a skilled San Francisco driver’s license suspension attorney, I can defend you on an individual ticket, especially in cases where another conviction will result in an automatic suspension of your license. 

However, I represent most of my driver’s license clients in administrative hearings before the DMV after notice of suspension has been received. My goal is to set aside the license suspension in cases such as:

  • DUI/drunk driving arrests or convictions
  • Implied consent violations
  • Multiple tickets for speeding, tailgating or other moving violations within a 12-month, 24-month or 36-month period
  • DMV suspension due to health problems
  • Problems involving a commercial driver’s license
  • Underage driver’s license suspension for drinking, curfew violations or other juvenile status offenses
  • DMV suspension or revocation hearings involving such violations as driving without insurance, driving on a suspended license, or aggravated DUI/drunk driving charges

DMV Hearing Must Be Set Within 10 Days In DUI Cases

In cases involving drunk driving, it is essential to schedule a hearing with the DMV within 10 days of your arrest. This will result in a stay of the suspension allowing you to drive pending the outcome of the hearing. Otherwise, you will lose your right to drive even if you later defeat the drunk driving charges.

My law firm’s experience with the protection of driving privileges at the level of administrative hearings represents a powerful advantage for anyone facing the prospect of a license suspension.
