ALR: Administrative License Revocation.
In addition to the criminal charges faced by those arrested for DUI or DWI, the arrest starts an administrative procedure called Administrative License Revocation or ALR. An ALR driver’s license suspension is automatic unless you request a hearing to challenge the suspension, in writing, within 15 days after receiving notice of the suspension. If a hearing is not requested the suspension automatically begins on the 40th day after notice was received. If a hearing is requested, no action will be taken regarding a suspension until after the hearing. We request an ALR hearing on your behalf and represent you in the hearing if you hire the firm prior to the 15 day deadline.
Defending Bryan – College Station DWI Charges
Many people wrongly assume if they blow “above-the-limit” on the breath test they are as good as convicted of drunk driving. However, that is not necessarily the case. My team will investigate all possibilities in defending your case including circumstances under which breath test results can be challenged. Our team is also skilled at attacking blood test results, including the blood draw procedure and forensic laboratory testing. I’ll help determine if you were legally stopped, whether sobriety tests were administered properly, and whether any chemical test can be used as evidence against you. I’ve written extensively on the Bryan-College Station Criminal Defense Blog about attacking the Intoxilyzer 5000 machine used to obtain breath alcohol concentrations from persons arrested for DWI. I’m experienced and prepared to fight against all chemical tests used to incriminate you.
