It is a good idea to take action immediately by contacting a DWI attorney.
A DWI case in Texas consists of two separate charges against you. The first charge is from the Department of Transportation, seeking to suspend or revoke your driver’s license. The second case is a separate case from the State of Texas, which is the criminal charge. Both can be fought in court in an attempt to prevent your license from being suspended.
Just fifteen days after your DWI charge, your license can be suspended by the State of Texas. Within that fifteen day timeframe you are given the chance to request a License Revocation Hearing to stop your license from being immediately suspended or revoked.
It is important that you hire a DWI attorney as soon as possible to assist you in avoiding any interruption with your license.

Aside from the costly fines that come with a DWI, you also risk the loss of your license. That can be another added expense you could do without. We tend to take our driving privileges for granted, until we no longer have that privilege. Most people depend on being able to drive to work. If you have your license suspended, that may interfere with your ability to get to work, sometimes ending in job loss.
