San Diego DUI Defense Attorney Presents Information On A DUI Case in New DMV Hearing Page

San Diego, CA (PRWEB) September 25, 2013

The well-known DUI defense attorney in San Diego Chris Koch recently released a very useful DMV hearing page that contains important information on what to do following a DUI arrest. The new page focuses on the DMV, or Department of Motor Vehicles in California and what to expect from an administrative hearing. This department is responsible for the issuance and re-issuance of a drivers license, and other operations like renewals and change of information. When an officer confiscates the license of a DUI suspect, it goes to the DMV. An experienced attorney can work to get the license back from DMV if retained prior to the allotted time given to the offender. To find out more about hiring an attorney in San Diego to defend ones legal rights, or to read more about what to expect after a DUI arrest visit, http://duiattorneyinsandiegoca.com

People who get arrested on charges of drunk driving or driving under the influence (DUI) usually look for a way to contact the DMV as quickly as possible. The DMV is responsible for reviewing a particular case, and then come to a decision based on the evidence presented, and other details related to the circumstances that lead to the arrest. If the lawyer is able to convince the administrative officer at the time of hearing, the drivers license could be received back without any trouble. At the minimum, the offender could get his or her driving privileges back at least temporarily in the state of California.

These details have been explained in the newly launched page by the renowned DUI lawyer in San Diego. The attorney handles the steps from contacting the DMV, to collecting adequate evidence and avoiding a trial by working with the prosecutor thoroughly and clearly. The attorney also mentions that it is mandatory to request a hearing within 10 days after the arrest. To find out what steps to take after an arrest for suspicion of drunk driving speak to an attorney at 877-227-9128

There are many types of legal defenses the lawyer could utilize to prove their client innocent. These include presenting evidence of a false blood test, or faulty apparatus that was used to screen the breath or blood for traces of alcohol. Moreover, the attorney may give powerful statements in front of the judge that can convince them of an unlawful arrest. The most important thing is to contact knowledgeable attorney promptly after an arrest, and it is recommended to retain a lawyer to give proper advice and guidance. A lawyer will advise their clients on what steps are needed to properly defend the charges, and what will be needed to get the individuals drivers license back.

It is very possible to avoid a court trial following a DUI arrest if the lawyer and the offender act sensibly and quickly. Time is very crucial in a case like this and there is a need to present proper and honest information in front of the criminal prosecutor and at the DMV. If everything is handled carefully, the offender can get their driving privileges back in no time at all, and also help minimize fines. The case becomes more difficult if the person is arrested for a second or third time on charges of drunk driving but a seasoned attorney is still able to minimize legal issues.

Bankruptcy Attorney Craig Trenton Stops a Foreclosure and Helps a Senior get Home Loan Modified

San Diego, CA (PRWEB) October 10, 2013

The homeowners advocate group known as Banking Bad just issued a special thanks blog to San Diego Bankruptcy Attorney Craig Trenton. Craig recently helped a senior citizen stop a foreclosure on her home. Craig helped restructure her debt by filing a Chapter 13 Bankruptcy in a San Diego court. Filing a Chapter 13 bankruptcy stops foreclosure proceedings, giving the homeowner a chance to save their home, said Bankruptcy Attorney Craig Trenton when asked about the case. A Chapter 7 Bankruptcy filing can possibly save a home by wiping out other debts, allowing the homeowner to focus on the home, continued Craig Trenton.

In the homeowners particular case, stopping the foreclosure proceedings gave Steve Triebernig, a popular homeowners rights advocate, enough time to help the woman get a loan modification processed through her bank. Steve worked with the homeowner and the womans home loan service provider to get her loan modified and lower her monthly payments. When a bankruptcy attorney can stop a foreclosure like Craig Trenton did, it gives the borrower time to work with their bank to complete a successful loan modification, said homeowners advocate Steve Triebernig. In this case, it looks like it will be a happy ending for this particular borrower. For now she got a trial modification and we are just waiting to see that her actual modification is completed successfully, continued Steve.

About Craig Trenton:

Craig Trenton has been in solo legal practice as a bankruptcy attorney for over twenty years. During this time, Trenton has practiced throughout the West, including offices in Texas, Oklahoma, Utah, and Arizona that specialize solely in bankruptcy law.

About Banking Bad:

The Banking Bad website and YouTube channel are dedicated to educating and informing the public of strange or unethical activities involving banking institutions.

Steve Triebernig is the founder of the popular website and Facebook page Keep Bank of America Honest and has been working to start a non-profit to help struggling homeowners across the nation, called Hope for America.
