The California 10 Day Rule for DUI License Suspensions – California Vehicle Code Section 13558
If you have been cited or arrested for DUI in California, it is important to know that you must request a DMV hearing within 10 days.

When you are cited or arrested for DUI in California, you are usually given a notice that states that your license will be suspended by the DMV and that you have 10 days to request a hearing with the DMV.

Not only was Matthew extremely forthcoming, knowledgeable, informative, professional, and honest throughout the whole process, but he also made himself available to me whenever I became worried or unsure of where things were going, and he always kept me calm, confident, and centered, and above all, he did his job with absolute professionalism and fought for me to the point where the DA rejected my case, ending this horrendous situation in my life before it even saw the inside of a courtroom.
My case was closed today and thanks to Mr. Balderrama’s hard work and diligence we were able to work out an outcome that ultimately relieved me of so much stress and fear.
