ALR/License Suspension Hearings

You Have 15 Days from the Date of Your DWI
Houston ALR Lawyers

Under Texas law, you only have 15 days from the date of your DWI charges to schedule your administrative license review hearing with the DMV. At your hearing, you and your attorney will have an opportunity to challenge the evidence against you and argue to keep your drivers’ license until your criminal case has been resolved. It is your first — and best — opportunity to challenge the police officer’s probable cause for making the arrest, as well as any breath test evidence the prosecutor may have against you.

When you hire an attorney from DeToto, Van Buren & Brown, we will handle everything for you. We immediately contact the ALR bureau and handle all the details regarding the hearing. We know the hearing officers and what to expect. We can even represent you without your presence, in the event you are unable to attend.

Why Is It So Important to Have Good Representation at the ALR

The administrative license review hearing is your attorney’s opportunity to present evidence that you should be allowed to keep your driver’s license until your DWI criminal case has been heard in court. Your lawyer will have an opportunity for discovery of the facts law enforcement is basing its case on, and for questioning the evidence presented by the police.

Missing your ALR hearing can be disastrous because, often, the police don’t come prepared and you can cast serious doubts about the validity of their case. What happens at the ALR hearing can play a significant role in the outcome of your criminal case.
