The government with all of its resources can frequently make your life
miserable; regardless of whether you have actually committed the crime. Real
life criminal law is very serious. Cases are not resolved in one hour, and the
solutions are normally not simple. Hiring a criminal defense trial lawyer can be
the most important decision you make.
License Suspension from a DWI / DUI arrest can be a
serious matter when it creates hardship in getting to and from work.
Many Texas drivers who are arrested for driving while intoxicated do not
realize that a DWI arrest creates two cases.
Specifically, a DWI arrest results in both a criminal charge, and also
initiates a civil proceeding against the arrested motorist's driving
privileges called an Administrative License Revocation, or ALR.
An ALR suspension is initiated against an arrested driver for DWI when he
or she either
refuses to submit to breath or blood testing, or alternatively, fails a
breath or blood test. The legal authority to impose an ALR suspension
against a driver lies in the Texas implied consent statute.
You don’t need to face it all alone.
