Tampa DMV Hearing Attorney

DMV Hearings and DUI Defense in Tampa

In most DUI cases in the state of Florida, a person charged with the DUI offense has only 10 days in which to schedule a hearing with the Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles (DHSMV) to determine whether or not they will be able to keep their driving privileges. Should the person fail to schedule this hearing, they will have their driver's license suspended for up to 18 months.

A DHSMV Formal Review Hearing is your only opportunity to have your administrative suspension set aside. The Law Office of Timothy Hessinger has handled hundreds of these hearings and has developed a layered defense to give each client the best possible chance to avoid a long administrative suspension of their driver's license. Additionally, the Formal review hearing also provides the opportunity to test the State's case and evidence without the risk of a trial. Often, cross examination of the State's witnesses uncovers problems in the proof or evidence that provides the leverage necessary to get DUI charges dropped or reduced.
