ALDRO Hearings Lawyer in Honolulu

Fight Back Against a Suspended License

If you have been arrested for drunk driving in Honolulu, this will trigger two separate cases: a criminal case and the suspension of your license, which will take place through the Administrative Driver's License Revocation Office (ADLRO). While criminal charges will be addressed in a courtroom, an ADLRO hearing will determine your future driving privileges.

If you are interested in contesting the suspension of your license at an ADLRO hearing, call a Honolulu criminal defense lawyer from the Law Office of Steve Cedillos. I believe that it is important for all of my clients to feel protected and confident in their DUI lawyer's abilities to professionally handle their ADLRO hearing. I have more than 30 years of DUI experience and have successfully resolve numerous DUI cases.

Have an upcoming ALDRO hearing? Call my office today at (808) 201-0496.

What You Need To Know

When an arrest is made for DUI, a police officer may take away your license and issue a Notice of Revocation, which serves as a temporary driving permit for 30 days while you wait for your Administrative Driver's License Revocation Office decision. The hearing that follows is known as an "administrative per se" hearing, or APS. These hearings are held at the ADLR office nearest to where the drunk driving offense occurred.

Unlike court trials, there are no live witness testimonies, unless you subpoena the police officers yourself at an ADLRO hearing, and much of the proceedings will focus on the various police reports submitted, as well as the chemical tests administered. The purpose of the hearing is to decide whether or not the revocation of your driver's license was justified. Depending on the evidence that is presented in the ADLRO hearing, the office may decide to uphold or cancel the revocation. You have the ability to appeal the revocation if you wish for the court to reinstate your driving privileges.

Hire a Honolulu DUI Lawyer Who Aggressively Represents Clients

When you are arrested for DUI, you only have limited time after your arrest to schedule an ADLRO hearing. If you do not request an appointment within said time limit, your license is automatically revoked, and you cannot contest its revocation.

Losing your driver's license for any amount of time can seriously impact you and your loved ones' lives. It is advised that you have skilled legal representation to assist you, both to schedule and represent you at an ADLRO hearing. Contact my office today and I can review your situation, identify any flaws in the case, and advise you of the strategy that could be employed to help you avoid license suspension or revocation!
