DHSMV Hearings Before We Start, We Listen to Your Story.

Melbourne DHSMV Hearing Attorney

What is a DHSMV hearing?

For many Florida drivers, losing one's driving privileges can be devastating, especially for commercial drivers who rely on a driver's license to make a living. For other motorists, everyday commutes to work, school, or other daily tasks can become difficult or impossible.

In the state of Florida, drivers who have been arrested for driving under the influence (DUI) will only have 10 days to request a hearing with the Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles (DHSMV). The hearing is primarily used to determine whether or not a driver should have his or her licensed suspended for operating a motor vehicle while allegedly under the influence. Because your DHSMV administrative hearing will be time sensitive, what you do in the moments immediately following an arrest can prove to be critical to the outcome of your case.

As an experienced Melbourne criminal defense attorney, Steven G. Casanova is a member of the National College for DUI Defense and knows how to protect your driving privileges when your license is at risk.

DUI? Don't Cry! Hire Our Melbourne Defense Lawyer.

DUI-related offenses will require the attention of a Brevard County criminal defense lawyer with an extensive background. Unlike most criminal offenses, DUI arrests require representation for two separate cases: one in criminal court and another before the DHSMV. Without strong legal representation, you could not only put your driving privileges at risk, but you could be putting your rights and freedoms at risk as well.

Whereas the criminal courts will be searching primarily for evidence of guilt, the DHSMV will be searching primarily for evidence that proves that you were operating a motor vehicle with a blood alcohol content (BAC) level of 0.08% or above. Attorney Casanova is a certified breath test maintenance technician and a licensed Intoxilyzer 5000 operator. With this unique background, he has the insight that is needed to challenge any Breathalyzer results that may have led to your arrest and help prevent your license from suspension or revocation.

    "He is the consummate professional and does everything first class."
    Steve Casanova is an exceptional trial lawyer. He is smart, talented, quick on his feet and knows how to talk to a jury. He is the consummate professional and does everything first class. He knows the law, is innovative in his approach and his legal research is second to none. He is worth every penny. The way I look at it is you can either have a cheap lawyer or a great lawyer--after all if you needed brain surgery would you hire the cheapest brain surgeon you can find or would you hire the best. Hire Steve--hire the best!

    "Truly cares about the people he's serving"
    Mr. Cassanova took my call immediately and spoke to me about my legal situation. He was extremely helpful and even provided advice to me that possibly I may qualify for a public defender. Out of the three criminal attorneys I spoke to in my town, I know that Mr. Cassanova is genuine, emphathetic and truly cares about the people he's serving. Thank you for your time today - I appreciate you. I will be in touch.

    Mr. Casanova was very helpful. I could tell he wasn't money hungry. Most common folks are not fortunate to have a huge savings. The information he gave me was very accurate after researching. He easily could have taken advantage of a mother who has never experienced anything with the law if wanted to. When I asked about cost he simply said if your not satisfied with a public defender call me back. I felt he was sincere and honest in his answers. I think my gut is on point and will contact his office if I'm in need.

    "I wish this comment box was larger, because there simply is not enough room for all the good I have to say about this man. Simply the BEST."
    I have had extensive experience with criminal defense attorneys (from $1,000 attorneys all the way up to the $100,000 attorneys) and can attest that Mr. Casanova is the best in town. He and his staff are top-notch. Mr. Casanova will hold your hand when you need it, but "tell you how it is!" It's rare to find such an honest attorney, especially one who is so talented. He is not a "bottom dollar" attorney, but his pricing is more fair than anyone in town, and he will not take advantage of you in your time of need like most attorneys in Brevard. He is highly respected by the state attorney's office, and is able to negotiate favorable resolutions, but this guy is darn-sure ready to go the distance when you have a strong case. I have sought his expert guidance numerous times, referred him to friends and acquaintances, and even my own family members. I HIGHLY recommend Mr. Casanova for any and all criminal (and traffic) matters. I wish this comment box was larger, because there simply is not enough room for all the good I have to say about this man. Simply the BEST.

    "Top Notch Defense"
    I am a native Central Floridian and I value the laws of our state. I found myself in a jam at the beach and I needed the best. I read the reviews and I made a choice to hire the best local attorney with the right knowledge and associations. I knew I had made the right choice when I saw Mr. Casanova’s curriculum vitae. During the entire process I felt blessed to have his representation and all contact was to-the-point and professional. Steve and his girls Karen and Katie resolved my case with ease. Now my freedom is in sight. Good job to the entire team their for top notch defense!
