It will be a great move to contact one of our highly qualified DWI attorneys today at Trichter and LeGrand, and start fighting the charges ahead of you.
In the State of Texas, your DWI charge consists of two different cases against you. The first case against you in your DWI case is the charge by the State of Texas, which is the criminal case against you. With the criminal case, the state is looking to charge you with fines and jail time.
The second case against you is the charge from the Department of Transportation, seeking to suspend or revoke your driver’s license. You have the right to challenge both cases in an attempt to stop your license from being suspended, and to also avoid any usual jail time that goes along with a DWI charge.
The State of Texas will automatically suspend your driving privileges at the end of fifteen days after your DWI charge. You have the right in that 15 day period to stop your license from immediately being suspended by applying and winning for an Administrative License Revocation Hearing.
It is important that you contact a DWI attorney to assist you in applying for an ALR as soon as possible so that there is not an immediate revocation of your license after fifteen days of your charge. In Jefferson Texas, Trichter and LeGrand has the team in place to help you secure your license in the fifteen day period. Call us today for a free consultation.
An unfortunate consequence to a DWI charge is the loss of your driving privileges in the State of Texas, impacting your driving to and from work, as usual. In many cases, reliable transportation is a necessity for a job, and a DWI can threaten that luxury some might take for granted until it is no longer an available option. Our attorney team at Trichter and LeGrand have the experience to help you fight to keep your license from being suspended and try to avoid spending any valuable time in jail.
Another consequence of a DWI is that it goes on your permanent record. Often that can negatively impact your employment and other opportunities you have planned for. A DWI can be taken off of your permanent record by applying for an expungement hearing. You can only get an expunction if you win your case and not found guilty.
If an expunction is granted, your charge can be wiped off of your permanent record. You can be free of the fear that your DWI will somehow prevent you from all that life has ready for you. Let our team at Trichter and LeGrand try to help you successfully get your record expunged, as if the charge never happened in the first place.
