Will I Have to Go to Court?

There is no blanket answer to this question, as it will largely depend on the specifics of your case. In some cases, you may be required to go to court—in which case the lawyers from our firm will be able to step up and represent you. This can save you both the inconvenience and the wasted time of appearing yourself.

It is also important to understand that you will not only be dealing with the court trial from the criminal case, but that you will also have a civil case that will deal with the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) and the future of your license. The DMV hearing will not be held in a courtroom though, but rather at a DMV field office before a DMV officer.

If you were arrested and formally charged with driving under the influence, you will have to appear in court on your scheduled hearing date unless your case is dismissed before that date. If you fail to appear in court, the judge will issue a bench warrant, which means that you can be arrested on site. You may face additional penalties on top of your DUI for failure to appear.

Why You Shouldn’t Go to Court Alone

We strongly suggest that, if you were arrested for drunk driving, you do not go to court alone. Going to court without representation (or representation from a public defender) can put you at a disadvantage. Our seasoned defense attorneys know the ins and outs of Los Angeles courts, they know the judges, and they have honed their tactics to product proven strategies for your defense.
