Travis County ALR Lawyer

If you refused or failed the police breath or blood test, you may realize that you have two cases in your DWI arrest: Your criminal case and your Administrative License Revocation (ALR) hearing. Often overlooked with dire consequences, the ALR hearing is just as important because, if you’re successful, you’ll get to keep your driver license and you’ll get to hear the evidence that DPS will use against you in your criminal case. An experienced Travis County ALR lawyer can request a hearing within 15 days of your arrest to make every effort to keep your license from being suspended. We can represent you to your hearing and help you every step of the way. Go here to learn more about the ALR hearing. 

Beside helping you keep your license, the ALR hearing gives your Travis County DWI attorney the first opportunity to gather evidence in your criminal case. Here,  the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS)’s officer is forced to prove that the arresting officer had either reasonable suspicion or probable cause. If DPS can’t prove either, you get to keep your license by default. The attorneys at Trichter & LeGrand can help you navigate through the uncertainty and complexity of the ALR hearing.
