Hiring a specialized criminal defense attorney for your DUI charge in the DMV (Department of Motor Vehicles):

     You have the option of requesting a DMV hearing within 7 days of taking a breath test or a refusal. In addition you will want to request the DMV hearing as soon as you receive your revocation paperwork from a blood test. This hearing will be to challenge your pending license revocation.
