DUI Arrest in Long Beach? What is the next step?

For anyone arrested for a DUI the hours and days after the incident can be very stress filled and worrisome.  Having good advice is key to a favorable outcome in the case.  So what is the next step?  First, you must understand that the Court date is just one component of the DUI case.  If you are at all concerned about saving your driver’s license a DMV challenge must be made no later than 10 calendar days from the time of arrest.  If no demand for a hearing is requested than the license will be suspended.  If the DUI took place in the Long Beach area the drivers safety office in El Segundo is the proper place to schedule a hearing, known as an APS suspension challenge.  The Courts and Judges no longer have any control or power to stop the suspension, it must be done directly through the California Department of Motor Vehicles, but should you try to handle it on your own?  The answer to this question is common sense.  Would you try to operate on yourself if your needed surgery?  Of course not.  A DUI arrest and prosecution is a serious matter and it should be handled by a legal professional familiar with the local laws, policies and procedures.  Long Beach DUI Attorney  Matthew Ruff  is one local lawyer that knows the best way to fight a drunk driving case and has saved hundreds of drivers licenses from being suspended.  He can be reached toll-free at 1-877-212-2090 for a case evaluation and discussion of your rights and the best steps to take to keep the DUI from becoming a permanent scar on your record.
