ALR-Why is it so important to have a license revocation hearing
I f you have been arrested for driving while intoxicated it is critical that you request a hearing within 15 days for several reasons.
The best case scenario is that you win the hearing and your license does not get suspended. Therefore you do not have to go through the added expense of obtaining an occupational license , assuming , you are eligible to get one. The hearing can also be a valuable discovery tool for your attorney . Sometimes police officers will say things at the hearings that can be beneficial to you later at trial.
The best reason to fight the alr hearing is that you never know what will happen. For instance, a dismissal of your DWI does not mean that your driving record will be cleared.
If you have been arrested for Driving While Intoxicated consult with a criminal attorney. A criminal attorney can request the ALR hearing and handle the discovery proceedings.
