DHSMV Hearings: A Time Sensitive Matter

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 stake.

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.
