Two DIFFERENT Cases Against You

A DWI charge results in two separate cases against you in the State of texas. The first charge is a charge from the Department of Transportation, in which they are seeking to revoke or suspend your driver’s license. 

The second charge against you is coming from the State of Texas, which is a criminal case, where they are seeking fines and jail time. You have the right to challenge both cases in an attempt to stop your driving privileges from being suspended as well as avoid jail time. 

The State of Texas will automatically suspend your license fifteen days from the date of your DWI charge without having an ALR hearing. You have the right in that fifteen day period to stop your license from immediately being suspended by applying and winning an Administrative License Revocation Hearing. 

It is important to contact a DWI attorney to assist you in applying for an ALR as soon as possible so that there is no immediate revocation of your license. In Austin Texas, Trichter and LeGrand has the team in place to help you secure your licence in the 15 day period after your DWI charge.

A DWI Can Cost You Your Job, License and Freedom

Driving to and from work is often taken for granted until that luxury is taken away from you as a penalty for having a DWI charge or conviction. In many cases, driving to work is a necessity and the loss of your driver’s license, reliable transportation, can endanger your job. 

Our DWI attorneys at Trichter and LeGrand have the experience to help you fight to keep your drivers license from being suspended and try to avoid spending any time in jail. 

Unfortunately a DWI goes on your permanent record. Often it can negatively affect employment and other opportunities that come along. You can be granted an expunction if you apply for an expungement hearing, win your case, and are not found or do not plead guilty. 

A guilty plea or guilty ruling means a DWI can never be removed from your record. Let the team at Trichter and LeGrand try and help you successfully get your record expunged.
