DWI Warning:

Act quickly if you have been charged with DWI or DUI in Texas.

If you are arrested for DWI or DUI in Texas, you will most likely be subject to a driver’s license suspension. In addition to the criminal case, there will be an administrative case wherein the Texas Dept. of Public Safety will seek to  suspend your driver’s license.

You have 15 days to request a hearing that may save your driver’s license!

At the time of arrest you will be issued a notice of suspension. Pursuant to the terms of the notice, you have 15 days to request an Administrative License Revocation (ALR) Hearing. In order for the state of Texas to revoke your license, they must prove 3 things:

  • The officer must have reasonable suspension to stop your vehicle at the time of arrest.
  • The state must prove that the officer had probable cause to arrest you for DWI.
  • The state must prove that you agreed to a breath or blood test with a result over .08 BAC, or that you refused a properly requested breath or blood test.

The hearing will be conducted before an administrative judge from the State Office of Administrative Hearings (SOAH). The hearing will be conducted pursuant to the technical rules for administrative hearings followed by SOAH. We have extensive experience handling ALR hearings and are often able to save your driver’s license from being suspended.

All major credit cards accepted.
