ADMINISTRATIVE LICENSE REVOCATION
Texas Driver’s License Suspension Attorneys
If you have been pulled over for drunk driving and refused or failed the breath test, or if you have been charged with a drug crime, your driver’s license will be suspended unless you challenge the suspension. You have only 15 days from your arrest to request an Administrative License Revocation (ALR) hearing with the Texas Department of Public Safety. This is an extremely important step in fighting the charges and keeping your license.
You Have 15 Days To Protect Your License From The Date Of Arrest
The attorneys at Paine & Nolter, P.C. have handled hundreds of driving while intoxicated (DWI) cases, both as Prosecutors and defense lawyers. We understand that the consequences of losing your license can be severe. Losing your license may mean losing your job. That is why we will work hard to protect your rights at the ALR hearing. Call our Denton County office at 940-382-4200 or contact us online to make an appointment.
You Can Take Action to Keep Your License
If you do not request an ALR hearing, your license will be automatically suspended. The length of the suspension depends on the charge against you. You will also lose your opportunity to get an occupational license.
We can represent you at the ALR hearing. In addition to fighting for your license, we will also have the chance to question the arresting officer about the events surrounding your arrest. This process can be important if your DWI case goes to trial.
If the judge suspends your license at the ALR hearing, we can help you apply for an occupational license if you are eligible. An occupational license allows you to drive to work, school and to take care of certain family obligations.
It is not a good idea to represent yourself at an ALR hearing. We have more than 80 years of combined experience and know how to attack the state’s case against you. To schedule a consultation, please call us at 940-382-4200.
