The YOUNGLOVE LAW FIRM is experienced with and has appeared in numerous Arizona Department of Transportation Motor Vehicle Division (MVD) Hearings on behalf of its clients. These hearings most frequently occur as a result of a client being charged with DUI. Hearings are traditionally requested to dispute or challenge an administrative suspension of one’s driving privileges.

MVD Hearings are civil proceedings, rather than the criminal nature of the actual DUI charge. It is a separate proceeding that is triggered by the DUI arrest and resulting charge.

The burden of proof in an MVD Hearing is a “preponderance of the evidence” standard, i.e.-more likely than not. This should be distinguished from the “beyond a reasonable doubt” standard that governs a criminal DUI prosecution.

The Hearing rulings are determined by an administrative law judge, rather than a jury of your peers. The issues usually heard include “Administrative Per Se” Hearings, and “Implied Consent” Hearings.

A Phoenix Arizona Criminal Defense attorney at the Younglove Law Firm can represent you at all stages of MVD Hearings. Our experience as MVD Hearing criminal defense lawyers can make a difference in your case.
