Our firm is ready to handle every aspect of your DUI case

Defending Your Driving Privileges

After getting arrested for a DUI, you have a short time span of only 10 days to request a hearing through the North Dakota Department of Transportation.  This hearing will determine whether you get to keep your driving privileges in North Dakota or if they will be suspended or even revoked for a period of time.

After requesting your hearing, ND DOT will set a time for the hearing (usually within 25 days of the arrest).  This hearing will be designed to try and prove that you were driving while intoxicated, and that the stop and subsequent arrest was legitimate.  Don't go in to this hearing alone and unprepared.  Let our experienced and knowledgeable attorneys fight for your right to drive in the state of North Dakota.  Our firm will handle everything that needs to be done regarding your driving privileges.  This includes putting in the request, gathering the evidence, and organizing a defense that will best advocate for you during the hearing.  Our dedicated approach has earned us a high winning percentage on behalf of our clients in North Dakota.
