Are there defenses at California DMV hearings in San Diego, attorneys are asked?

A DUI attorneys' defenses at an APS hearing are specialized and technical, more so than in California DUI court. Interesting proof issues - plus legal, procedural and bureaucratic hurdles - form the bases for avoiding a suspension by DMV.

In light of the uniquenss of San Diego DUI / DMV hearings and the absence of an independent San Diego DUI judge to offer any protection, folks are strongly advised not to try to represent yourself. Since these are not California DUI criminal proceedings, San Diego County public defenders are unavailable.
