Administrative License Revocation Hearing
Defend Your License After a DWI Arrest in Houston
There are a few ways that you could lose your license or have your license
suspended, but the most serious offense and one that holds the longest
suspensions is a
driving while intoxicated (DWI) arrest or failure to adhere to a
breath or blood test. After an arrest, you will have your license immediately suspended pending
an administrative license revocation (ALR) hearing. These hearings, known
as administrative license revocation hearings, completely separate from
your criminal trial.
What Happens at an ALR Hearing?
At an ALR hearing, you will get the opportunity to defend your driving
privileges and potentially retain your license. Even though this is not
a criminal trial, it is important that you work with a Houston defense
attorney before entering this administrative process. At Stornello &
Correro Law Firm, PLLC, we stand ready to provide you with the best possible
legal counsel for your case.
After a DWI arrest, you have to submit a request for a hearing within 15
days to the proper ALR office. The hearing may be conducted in person
or over the phone and the hearing itself could potentially occur 120 days
after the initial arrest. Issues addressed at the hearing will include
your breath and blood test failures or refusals (a refusal will automatically
result in your license suspension) and any
evidence gathered by the arresting officer. It is important to remember that you
do have a right to representation during this hearing and it is recommended
that you work with a Houston
criminal attorney at Stornello & Correro Law Firm, PLLC right away. We are dedicated
to providing aggressive service to our clients and helping them receive
favorable outcomes for their ALR hearings.
