If the State of Texas charges you with Driving While Intoxicated (DWI) it is extremely important that you get in touch with an experienced DWI attorney as soon as possible. The unique nature of these allegations requires that you be represented by someone with significant experience and expertise in the field of Criminal law.
There are several important things that must be taken care of in an expedited fashion to preserve your rights.
First, in the State of Texas you should always request within 15 days a hearing from the Texas Department of Public Safety to challenge the revocation of your Drivers License. If you refused an Officer’s request for a sample of Breath or Blood after being arrested, your license will be suspended for 6 months starting 40 days from the date of arrest.
If you voluntarily submitted to the Officer’s request and your Blood Alcohol Concentration (BAC) was over 0.08, your license will only be suspended for 90 days.
To keep this from happening it is extremely important to challenge the State’s revocation of your license.
