Bexar County ALR Lawyer
If you’ve been arrested for DWI, you’ll also need an experienced lawyer to represent you in the Administrative License Revocation (ALR) hearing. We can request a hearing within 15 days of your arrest to make every effort to keep your license from being suspended. Your Bexar County ALR Lawyer will accompany you to your hearing aggressively argue to help keep your license. Go here to learn more about the ALR hearing.
In the ALR hearing is important to not just keeping your driver license, but allowing us to gather additional evidence in your DWI case. At the ALR hearing, we force the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) to prove that the police officer who arrested you had either reasonable suspicion or probable cause. If they cannot prove either one, you win by default.
The ALR hearing also gives your Bexar County ALR Lawyer the opportunity to subpoena the officer to testify during the hearing. If the he or she doesn’t appear, you win your case by default. However, if the officer appears, it allows us to hear evidence that was not written in the original police report which could be used to prove your innocence.
