You've just been released from jail after a harrowing night.  You've been stopped, subjected to field sobriety tests, humiliation, breath tests, and handcuffs.  What do you do next?

The first thing you need to do is read that pink paper that the officer gave tp you.  This is your temporary driver's license.  On the back of this paper, in small print, are instructions on how to challenge your license suspension.  You only have ten days to contest the suspension from the time of your arrest.  If you don't do anything, your license will automatically be suspended! 

In California, the DMV suspension hearing is different from the court date you were also given when you were released.  That date, which is your arraignment, will allow you to get a copy of the charges against you, and the police report.

A wise thing to do is hire an experienced San Francisco DUI attorney immediately.  Let that attorney handle all the deadlines.  An experienced San Francisco DUI attorney knows the labryinth of time requirements and forms that need to be done.  But don't delay.  You only have ten days.
