The Law Office of Derek R. Ewin.

Concord DUI Attorney


If you have been arrested for DUI, you could face a variety of serious penalties including jail time, fines and the suspension or revocation of your driver’s license. Some of these penalties are time sensitive and require setting a hearing within ten (10) days of your arrest. Derek Ewin has literally handled hundreds of these types of cases. He can help you navigate through the courts and DMV so that you receive the best possible outcome.

WE NEED TO SET A DMV LICENSE SUSPENSION HEARING WITHIN 10 DAYS OF YOUR ARREST

The DMV wants to suspend your driver’s license based on your arrest alone. If you do not set this hearing, your license will be automatically suspended 30 days after your arrest. If we set a hearing, you will be able to legally drive until the outcome of that hearing, which usually takes place more than 30 days from the arrest. Don’t wait. The DMV will not give you a break if you fail to sign up within 10 days. Mr. Ewin will handle both the request for the hearing and the actual hearing as part of your representation. Call Now!
