Spital & Associates
SAM SPITAL STOPPED ALL CRIMINAL & CIVIL LIABLITY FOR ME: I contacted Sam Spital for legal advice when I was threatened with hundreds of thousands of dollars in civil liability AND a serious complex criminal case. Sam Spital personally handled everything from the beginning to the end of the case. All my prayers were answered and I could finally relax knowing Sam Spital has taken over and was on my side. He gets it right the first time; I had a truly winning result. If you, your family or your friends want to level the playing field and losing in not an option, SAM SPTITAL IS YOUR GUY! He is competent, professional, and his fees were quite reasonable. Sam always answers your calls and emails immediately. You just don’t find a lawyer like that anymore, where you would otherwise have to go through a chain of calls. Sam Spital is always right there with peace of mind for you. I would turn to him again with no doubt in my mind. Should you have any questions, I am always willing to talk to someone about my experience with Sam. I wish the best of luck to you. Michelle C.
Tips & Advices
A DMV hearing is a person's chance to give his or her testimony regarding the arrest and provide any evidence. It's an administrative procedure, not a criminal hearing, so a person won't be declared innocent or guilty at this time. People can bring an attorney with them, but this hearing must be scheduled within 10 days of the arrest.
Breathalyzers are commonly used and widely accepted, but have some faults. Alcohol-containing substances in the mouth, like mouthwash or stomach acid, could result in a falsely high reading. Some devices can malfunction, or may be incorrectly calibrated. Blood tests are the most accurate tests.
For a misdemeanor, a speedy trial should take 90 days, but most cases are resolved in three to six months. For a felony, a speedy trial should take 175 days, and most cases are resolved in five to seven months. In bigger cities or larger population areas, felonies might take several years to resolve.
A DUI will stay on someone's record for at least five years, and could be longer depending on which state the person lives in.
Different states define felonies differently. Some common ways a DUI can be elevated from a misdemeanor to a felony include:
  • If someone was injured.
  • If your BAC is elevated to a certain limit set by law. This limit is usually around .16.
  • If there are children in the vehicle.
  • If the driver has prior DUIs​.
  • If the driver's license is suspended, revoked or restricted.
