Additionally, if you have been charged with a DUI chances are your license will be suspended. You have to make a DMV administrative review within 10 days of notice that your license was suspended. It is important to note that a DMV hearing is different than your legal court appearance and our firm is fully equipped to guide you through both.

    "Jamie's attitude and work ethic is beyond this world"
    Finding myself in an unforeseen situation while being present in the States, I must tell you, Jamie's attitude and work ethic is beyond this world. Communication wise, his team is on point. I don't typically write reviews on matters and such but to be honest, I have to give credit where it is due. Many legal representatives nowadays don't instill as much time and effort into a situation like they once used to. However, Jamie ensured that my situation was resolved in a timely manner and updated me every single step of the way. A very thoughtful and respectable man, you won't go wrong with him!
