Will My License Be Suspended?
DWI License Suspension Defense
— Harris County, Montgomery County, Galveston County, Fort Bend County, Texas
License suspension is one of the biggest and most immediate concerns you are likely to have after a DUI/DWI arrest. If you’ve recently been unfortunate enough to have had that sort of encounter with law enforcement, the important thing to know right now is that your driver’s license will automatically be suspended 15 days after the arrest, unless you request a hearing.
Why the License Suspension Hearing is Important
The main reason why this hearing is so important is obvious: if we are successful, you get to keep your driving privileges while the criminal case is pending. This can buy you the time you need to re-arrange your life in the event that you are convicted.
A second, nearly as important benefit of the license suspension hearing is as a means of getting police officer testimony on the record and of getting a glimpse of the prosecution’s case long before trial.
For these reasons, it is absolutely critical to hire a lawyer and request this hearing as soon as possible. The sooner you do the better chance you’ll have to avoid or minimize the consequences of your arrest.
