Corpus Christi ALR Lawyer

If you have a temporary driving permit because you lost your driver license because you refused or failed the police breath or blood test, you’ll more than likely be served notice that your license will be suspended. Within 15 days of your arrest date, you must request an Administrative License Revocation or ALR hearing. If you fail to request the ALR hearing, your license will be suspended. Contact your Corpus Christi ALR attorney team of James Granberry and Gary Trichter to avoid having your driver license suspended.

The ALR hearing gives DPS the burden of proving that the officer who arrested you had either probably cause or reasonable suspicion. This gives your attorney the opportunity to preview DPS’s evidence that will be used against you in your DWI case. If DPS can prove neither probable cause nor reasonable suspicion, you avoid your driver license being suspended by default.

It’s important that you have your attorney present at your ALR hearing so that you can start building a stronger DWI defense early rather than later. Your attorney can go into much more detail about your specific case in your free initial consultation. Call us 24/7 to set it up.
