DUI and DMV Hearings in Amador County

Jackson Suspended License Attorney

21 Years of DUI Defense Experience in Amador County, California

A conviction for drunk driving can lead to the loss of your driver's license, increased insurance rates and conviction on your record. Firm lawyer Jeffrey D. Seaton has more than two decades of experience defending clients facing DUI/DWI charges. Additionally, he works closely with an investigator who is a retired California highway patrolman with 31 years of service. Together, they provide the knowledgeable assistance needed to fight DUI charges in Amador County, Calaveras County, El Dorado County and Alpine County.

When you are pulled over for DUI the officer will likely confiscate your driver's license because he or she can act as an agent of the DMV. You will receive a temporary driver's license which will allow you to drive for just 30 days. If you don't contact the DMV within 10 days you will lose your driving privileges for 120 days. If the DUI charge is your second charge, you'll lose your license for one year.

What We Can Do for You

In order to prevent the suspension of your driver's license you must contact the DMV, then prepare for and attend your hearing.

We can investigate and prepare for your case, and then attend your hearing and present information to persuade the judge not to suspend your license.

We can also handle the criminal aspect of your case by questioning:

  • The accuracy of the breath test
  • The accuracy of blood and urine tests
  • The validity of the police officer's reason for pulling you over
  • Statements made by witnesses versus the police officer's statements

Our investigations are more thorough than that of law enforcement officers, and we work diligently to question officers' claims. For instance, in one recent case, officers claimed that our client drove his motorcycle on a winding mountain road with a .3 alcohol limit. We videotaped the route taken to prove it was next to impossible for our client to have operated his motorcycle on the route at that level of intoxication.
