DMV Hearings After DUI

After a DUI arrest, the accused will have an uphill battle on two fronts — with the criminal justice system in the court and with the Colorado Division of Motor Vehicles (DMV) for their current and future driving privileges. While legal cases in court can take weeks or even months to come to trial and ultimately resolve, Denver DMV hearings for DUI have a significantly faster pace; specifically, those accused of DUI will have to petition the DMV within seven days of their arrest to request a hearing during which they can argue to retain their driver's license.

Given the complex nature of both the court system and the Denver DMV hearing process, it is critical that those who have been arrested for DUI work with the skilled Denver DUI defense lawyers at FleschLaw. We have years of experience successfully handling DUI matters, and our Denver DMV hearing attorneys know how to present strong, cogent arguments to DMV administrators. We can quickly act on your behalf to ensure that:

  • All necessary deadlines are met, as the Colorado DMV has strict rules for when certain steps need to be taken.
  • All paperwork and documentation is appropriately completed and properly submitted.
  • All other essential steps are completed so that you have the best chances of retaining your driving privileges.

Denver DMV Hearings For DUI And License Suspension

Failing to request a DMV hearing within seven days of a DUI arrest will result in an automatic driver's license suspension, the term of which will depend on:

  • Whether an individual has had prior DUI convictions
  • If prior DUI convictions exist, the length of time since the previous convictions will also be a factor (Namely, if a second DUI arrest occurs within five years of a previous conviction an automatic five-year license revocation will be invoked.)

While the exact term of a license suspension for first-time DUI offenders will depend on whether anyone else was hurt as a result of the incident, in general, these suspensions can last from 30 days to up to one year. After the license suspension period has expired, the individual will need to show proof of insurance and pay some fees in order to get the license reinstated. With your driving privileges on the line — as well as possibly your job — working with a Denver DUI attorney is critical to the outcome of your case.

“ Fleschlaw rocks!!! ”

I had a DUI that I thought was bogus. I got Kevin and his staff on it right away. I never lost my license and he got the case dismissed at the motions hearing. Kevin told me what he thought would happen and he delivered. – John

“ Fleschlaw really helped me ”

I had two driving under suspension tickets pending. I thought for sure I was going to Jail. Kevin was able to help me understand the DMV process, get my driving privilege back and resolve the two tickets so I didn't go to Jail and I can drive again. Amazing... – Juan

“ Kevin can try a case!!!”

Kevin handled my criminal case. The DA would not make me any offers and so we went to trial. The trial took all day but Kevin made their star witness look incredible and a liar. The jury came back fast - not guilty. Kevin was great in trial!!! - Larry

“ Delighted!!! ”

I was very, very happy with the service I received from Kevin and delighted with the results. I certainly recommend Kevin to anyone that will need his type of service. I was looking at the possibility of losing my license and not only did I keep my license, but I still have points to spare! Delighted!!! - Marc

“ Fantastic Results ”

I got charged with a DUI and I didn't think the police officer should have contacted me to begin with. I knew I needed a lawyer to make the arguments for me. I interviewed several lawyers and felt comfortable with Kevin. He had to file motions and then have a hearing on the issue. His arguments were right on and the Judge granted my requests. The case was dismissed. – Wanda

“ Fleschlaw is the real deal ”

I was on probation for a DUI and I got another one. I freaked out and called Kevin. He calmed me down and worked for over 9 months and finally got my new case reduced to a reckless driving. I hate court but Kevin and his staff really worked hard and never gave up. In the end, Fleschlaw exceeded my expectations. – Derick

“ Real Lawyer that Fights for You ”

I looked around for a lawyer for a awhile. I met with Kevin and explained my case. We went to court and he got the case dismissed. He is the best. - Jimmy

“ Very good lawyer very good results ”

I was charged with DUI. I thought my life was over. Kevin met with me and really wanted to know what happened. After hearing how I was arrested, he thought the officer should not have contacted me. He was able to get my case dismissed. – Ron

“ Great Attorney ”

He was very helpful in my criminal case. He helped me stay out of jail. He is very friendly and I liked the people in his office. – Criminal Defense Client
