What should I do if recently got a DUI?

I had a 0.15 BAC on the breathalyzer. I’m not exactly sure how to handle the DMV hearing, etc. I do not want to postpone the 30 day hard suspension of my license but also want to minimize my troubles. Do I need to call them within the 10 days or just let the default happen?

You should retain experienced DWI counsel  There are many defenses to a DWI.  That is particularly true in the aftermath of the US Supreme COurt Decision in Missouri v,  McNeely.
