PHOENIX CRIMINAL LAWYERS FOR ARIZONA MVD HEARINGS
PHOENIX ARIZONA CRIMINAL AND DUI DEFENSE ATTORNEYS WITH EXTENSIVE EXPERIENCE AIDING INDIVIDUALS THROUGHOUT THEIR ARIZONA MVD HEARING
The Gillespie Law Firm's Phoenix Criminal Defense Lawyers regularly appear in Arizona Department of Transportation Motor Vehicle Division ("MVD") hearings. In fact, we have an entire separate web site, PhoenixDUILawyers.com, devoted entirely to DUI, MVD and vehicular crimes defense.
MVD hearings are civil in nature and differ in several ways from the courtroom proceedings in a criminal matter. The hearings are more informal, and are decided by an Administrative Law Judge, rather than a jury. The standard of proof in these hearings is a "preponderance of the evidence" (more probable than not); a much lower standard than the "beyond a reasonable doubt" standard in criminal court. MVD conducts different types of hearings depending on the nature of the license suspension or other contemplated action. These include:
- Arizona DUI Hearings (Administrative Per Se Hearing; Implied Consent Hearing)
- Arizona Negligent Operator "Points" Hearings
- Arizona Medical Review Hearings
- Reinstatement of Driving Privileges Following Suspension
- Reinstatement of Driving Privileges Following Revocation
- SR22 Insurance
