Why the License Suspension Hearing is Important
The main reason why this hearing is so important is obvious: if we are successful, you get to keep your driving privileges while the criminal case is pending. This can buy you the time you need to re-arrange your life in the event that you are convicted.
A second, nearly as important benefit of the license suspension hearing is as a means of getting police officer testimony on the record and of getting a glimpse of the prosecution’s case long before trial.
For these reasons, it is absolutely critical to hire a lawyer and request this hearing as soon as possible. The sooner you do the better chance you’ll have to avoid or minimize the consequences of your arrest.
