DUI in New Port Richey

After a DUI arrest, a lot of people will tell you to waive your rights to a formal review hearing by stipulating to the administrative suspension. In exchange, you can receive a hardship license if you personally go to the Bureau of Administrative Review in Clearwater, FL, with proof you enrolled in DUI school.

The problem is that the "waiver review hearing" means that the administrative suspension will stay on your driving record for the next 75 years, even if you ultimately avoid a DUI conviction in court.

At the Sammis Law Firm, our attorneys take a different approach by helping our clients demand a formal review hearing. If your driver's license was valid at the time of the arrest, then you are automatically entitled to a 42-day temporary permit, while your attorney challenges the administrative suspension.

Read our DUI case results to learn more about how we get the administrative suspension invalidated.

Demanding the formal review hearing is the only way to get the suspension off of your driving record. At the formal review hearing, your attorney has the opportunity to question all of the witnesses under oath. So even if you don't get it suspension invalidated, your attorney gets valuable information that can be used to fight the criminal case.
