Fairmont, WV DMV Hearings

At Mountaineer Criminal Law Group, we provide unparalleled legal representation for DMV DUI hearings. Navigating the specifics of DUI cases can be complex, but we’re here to guide you through the process every step of the way.

DMV DUI Hearings Explained

  • Two-Court System Prior to July 1, 2020: DUI cases used to be split across the administrative license revocation court and the criminal court.
  • Post-July 1, 2020 – Streamlined Proceedings: Thanks to West Virginia’s Senate bill 130, if your DUI case arose after this date, the process has been simplified to just one court appearance.
  • Existing Cases Pre-July 2020: Older cases continue under the former system until the Office of Administrative Hearings closes on July 2, 2021. After this date, unresolved cases may be dismissed.

Understanding these procedures can be tricky. Our experienced Fairmont DUI lawyers are equipped to handle your case with care and ensure a favorable resolution.

Simplifying the Path to Justice

  • Unification of DUI Cases: The unification of DUI proceedings has made it easier to manage such cases.
  • Protecting Driving Privileges: Our attorneys work tirelessly to protect your driving privileges and mitigate the severity of penalties where possible.

In any DUI case, preparation and a strong defense are key. The Mountaineer Criminal Law Group is committed to representing you and achieving the best possible outcome.

Administrative License Revocation for Pre-July 2020 Arrests

  • Procedure for Pre-July 2020 DUI Arrests: Arrests made before the new law trigger administrative license revocation proceedings. The legal process includes breath tests and potential license suspension upon guilt.

 Handling a Revocation Notice

  • Legal Counsel for Revocation: Receiving a revocation notice can be daunting. Our Fairmont Criminal Lawyers can guide you through your options.
  • Fighting License Revocation: Through administrative hearings or installation of an ignition interlock device, we can help secure the best outcome for your circumstances.

Key Points about DMV DUI Hearings

  • Driving Privileges at Stake: Remember, driving is a privilege, not a right. A DUI charge can lead to its revocation.
  • Appealing for a Hearing: You have 30 days to appeal for an administrative hearing—consult with a Fairmont DUI Lawyer promptly to build a strong defense.

Facing a DUI charge can be overwhelming, but having the right attorney can ease the burden. Whether your case falls before or after the enactment of the Senate bill, our Fairmont Criminal Lawyers are ready to assist you. Contact us today for a free consultation and take the first step toward clearing your charges.

Client Reviews

I had hired Mr. Logue a few years ago for my gf at the time for charges she had gotten before I had met her, for prostitution. Big mistake to date her and pay for her lawyer as we didn’t work out but Mr. Logue far exceeded expectations. He got nearly all charges in 2 separate cases dropped for her...


I was arrested on a felony 3 charge looking at at least up to 2 years in prison. County District Attorney didn't want to negotiate. After a lot of hard work, Sean was able to plead the case all the way down to just 90 days jail with a work release. Better deal than I realistically could have hoped...

Former Client

Mr. Logue took our son’s cases on very short notice (the first lawyer we hired wasn’t getting anywhere with either of the prosecutors and had actually turned one of the cases over to the court-appointed attorney). We hired Mr. Logue to go to trial if needed, but he worked with both prosecutors and...
