An arrest for DUI triggers two separate legal proceedings against you. ou must act immediately or else you will lose your license without even having a hearing. You will automatically lose your right to a hearing if you do not file a written request for a hearing along with the required fee within 20 days of the date you were pulled over. The first is an administrative proceeding in the Department of Licensing in which the DOL will be seeking to suspend/revoke your driver’s license. The second is the criminal proceeding that will be initiated in District or Superior Court once the Prosecutor has filed charges against you based on your stop or arrest. It is crucial that you seek the advice of an experienced and competent DUI attorney right away in order to preserve your rights and protect your interests.
