DL Suspension ALR Hearings
If you have been arrested for DWI, you probably understand that you will be facing a criminal charge in the county or district court, depending on the severity of your case. However, you may not understand that you will also be facing the civil suspension of your driving privileges.
From the time you were arrested, you have 15 days to request a hearing to contest the automatic suspension of your drivers license. If you timely request it, you will be granted an Administrative License Revocation (ALR) hearing. If you fail to timely request the hearing, you may lose your license for up to a year.
We can help! As part of our normal procedure for handling DWI cases, we strongly recommend having a ALR hearing. At the ALR, we will have the opportunity to question the arresting officer about specific facts of your case. We can get him/her on the record about why they pulled your vehicle over, what they observed about you and your car, how they conducted any Standardized Field Sobriety Tests (SFST), and any other pertinent information about your case which may provide a defense to your criminal case. Of course, at the same time we are trying to keep you licensed by winning the ALR hearing.
The ALR hearing is a great tool and should not be missed if possible. Call or email our office to discuss in further detail the facts about your case and how we can assist you with your ALR hearing. The call and consultation are FREE!
