Kerr County ALR Lawyer

Failing or refusing to take the police blood or breath will likely lead to your automatic arrest and suspension of your driver license. Having a Kerr County ALR Lawyer–the same lawyer as your DWI attorney–at your Administrative License Revocation or ALR hearing gives you an advantage in your DWI case. You must request your ALR hearing within 15 days of your arrest date to save your driver license.

Your Kerr County ALR lawyer at Trichter & LeGrand will help you schedule your ALR hearing guide you through the process. With your attorney present at this hearing, we will be able to preview evidence presented by the arresting officer and use those findings in your DWI case. If DPS cannot prove that the arresting officer had neither reasonable suspicion or probable cause, you win by default and your license will not be suspended. Act quickly at the ALR hearing stage and make sure you have proper legal representation.
