Yes, it is possible to have your lawyer with you at this “hearing”. However, they cannot speak on your behalf, but they can advise you. In this “hearing,” whether formal or informal, the student has very limited rights, fewer than with any other aspect of your DUI case.
Jeffrey Meldon Tip: It is important to hire a Gainesville DUI lawyer that is experienced in representing students at UF’s “hearings”, and includes the service in their fee. An experienced DUI defense lawyer can intervene and in some cases avoid suspension or expulsion for the student.
Remember, the only sure way of avoiding the lifelong consequences of a DUI conviction is to not drink and drive!
