DMV Defense Experts – Meet Our Team


The DMV Defense Experts of California Drivers Advocates

Our team of professionals has been representing drivers at all forms of DMV hearings for decades.  Also, DMV Defense is the only thing that we do.  We know the process and we know what it takes to be successful at beating the DMV. We will examine documents, interview witnesses, and subpoena additional evidence; such as audio and video tapes.  We will subpoena breath testing logs and medical documents.  In some instances we may subpoena the police officer to appear for cross-examination.  It is our policy to prepare for and conduct your hearing similar to a “mini-trial.”   Trust our DMV Defense Experts to get the job done correctly.  A less experienced person or team may result in the loss of your driving privilege.

California Drivers Advocates employs the services of several Administrative Advocates to fight for our clients at DMV hearings. Our Advocates are not attorneys. Our Advocates are former police officers or former DMV hearing officers with years of experience and thousands of administrative hearings under their belt. Our experience comes from the streets and from battles fought at the DMV. We grew out of the trenches and have the experience and the backbone to stand up for you.

Our Additional DMV Defense Expert Team – Investigators & Forensic Toxicologists

Investigators: Although your Administrative Advocate is your Champion who faces down the DMV hearing officers, opportunities for success are enhanced through the utilization of experts, including a Certified Traffic Collision Reconstructionist, a State of California licensed Private Investigator, a retired law enforcement official with nearly 30 years of honorable service, an investigator whose experience includes conducting investigations for legal counsel representing major automobile and tire manufacturing companies, and an investigator familiar with testimony in criminal courts, civil courts and testimony at State of California Department of Motor Vehicle hearings.  Investigators for California Drivers Advocates are selected and retained based on specialized knowledge, skills, decades of experience, histories of conducting successful investigations and their unwavering commitment to truth.

Forensic Toxicologist: CDA uses a DUI expert witness (i.e., Forensic Alcohol Consultant) to evaluate the scientific aspects of cases to determine if the technical issues of cases could be important in the defense of our clients. This expert worked in a southern California police crime lab for more than 20 years prior to entering the private sector to assist the defense of those charged with DUI. He has testified in many DUI trials and DMV hearings both as a people’s expert and as a defense expert during his more than 35 years in this profession. He has assisted us by thoroughly preparing us to challenge technical issues of cases, and by testifying in many DMV hearings on our clients’ behalf.
