    San Antonio ALR Attorney

    After you refused or failed the police chemical test, the officer more than likely took away your driver license, but that does not mean it’s suspended. Yet. Now is the time to hire a lawyer to request your Administrative License Revocation or ALR hearing to prevent your license from being suspended. Within 15 days of your arrest, you must request your hearing.

    The ALR hearing puts the burden on DPS to prove either probable cause or reasonable suspicion when the peace officer put you under arrest. Paul Goeke, your San Antonio ALR attorney and Gary Trichter, your DWI Specialist by the NCDD will cease this opportunity to review the evidence presented by DPS’ at this hearing. This evidence will be used by prosecutors in your DWI criminal case. You can prevent your driver license from being suspended if during the ALR hearing, DPS cannot prove probable cause or reasonable suspicion.

    Call the attorneys at Trichter & LeGrand 24/7 to set it up a free consultation.
