Working with a Kern County DUI Attorney

Get an Aggressive Legal Team on Your Side

When you are arrested for DUI in Bakersfield or Kern County, you will be in danger of severe repercussions that can affect various areas of your life. Depending on how you handle this situation and whether you involve an attorney, you may face a criminal conviction and the administrative suspension of your driver's license by the California Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV).

DUI cases are unique in that they involve two separate proceedings: the criminal court case and the DMV hearing. These operate independently from one another and both may have a serious impact on the accused. The criminal case addresses the criminal charges for driving under the influence. If a driver is found guilty, he or she may face imprisonment, fines, community service, probation and alcohol rehabilitation or treatment. The DMV hearing addresses the suspension of the driver's license by the Department of Motor Vehicles. This suspension will take place if the driver refused or failed a breath test or blood test to determine his or her blood alcohol concentration.
