The DMV Defense Experts of California Drivers Advocates

Our team of professionals has been representing drivers at all forms of DMV hearings for decades.  Also, DMV Defense is the only thing that we do.  We know the process and we know what it takes to be successful at beating the DMV. We will examine documents, interview witnesses, and subpoena additional evidence; such as audio and video tapes.  We will subpoena breath testing logs and medical documents.  In some instances we may subpoena the police officer to appear for cross-examination.  It is our policy to prepare for and conduct your hearing similar to a “mini-trial.”   Trust our DMV Defense Experts to get the job done correctly.  A less experienced person or team may result in the loss of your driving privilege.

A DMV Defense Expert is an individual or team who possess an intricate knowledge of all DMV administrative suspension processes and all the tactics used by the DMV to take away your driving privilege.  There are numerous means by which the DMV may suspend or revoke your driver license and a DMV Defense Expert has the training and experience to prevent that from happening.  A DMV Defense Expert will have many years devoted to understanding the laws that govern DMV suspension hearings as well as the process and procedures involved.  A true DMV Defense Expert will devote the vast majority of their time and effort to preparing for DMV Hearings and representing drivers at those hearings.  If you are facing the possible loss of your driving privilege, a DMV Defense Expert is your best option to overcome that threat.

The benefits of utilizing a DMV Defense Expert are numerous.  When faced with the prospect of losing one’s driving privilege, many drivers will simply give up or begin planning to live their lives without the benefit of a driving privilege.  This approach literally defeats you before you have even begun to fight.  Also, there are many penalties that follow the loss of one’s driving privilege such an attendance at costly schools or a significant increase in insurance costs.   Additionally, a tarnish on one’s driving record may cause a loss of employment or being denied a job promotion.  If you are searching for a job, a license suspension can make job searches more difficult.  A DMV Defense Expert can use their training and experience to minimize these set-backs or to avoid them entirely.

“The mission of California Drivers Advocates is to provide the highest quality representation to our clients at administrative hearings before the California Department of Motor Vehicles.  Understanding the freedom to drive is critical to living and working in the State, we will represent  our clients with integrity, honesty, professionalism and respect.  Remaining accessible, efficient and caring are our daily goals.  We understand our clients fear and objectives and will strive to meet or exceed their expectations.  We dedicate ourselves to these core values.”

It is critical that you be represented by an Administrative Advocate or attorney that is considered to be a DMV Defense Expert to ensure that the Hearing Officer correctly considers all of the evidence during your  hearing.
