How DWI Attorneys Deal with Your Suspended License
People who are charged and found guilty of DWI will have their licenses suspended by the DMV, and this is where a good DWI attorney can help you out.
Blood or urine testing are conducted by police officers on those they have arrested for DWI charges. Once the blood or urine is extracted it will be taken to the lab to determine alcohol levels in your system, and if it exceeds the level allowed for driving, then your license will be recommended for suspension by the police officer to the DMV.
A notification of the suspension will then be sent to your by the DMW. The first thing you need to do once you receive a notification of suspension is to immediately contact your DWI attorney to schedule a hearing with the DMV on your behalf. After receiving the suspension notice, your lawyer only has 15 days to file a request for a hearing with the DMV.
You may experience a situation where you don’t have a temporary license in your possession and you are stopped by a police officer, after you have filed a request for a DMV hearing. The officer should be able to check that out on his computer so that he can release you immediately. But, in case the police officer still gives you a ticket despite confirming the request for hearing with the DMV, you should simply refer this to your DWI attorney who can easily handle this for you. If you are arrested for the same charge, that is, driving with a suspended license, then you can file a case against the DMV for not posting the hearing request into the computer.
DWI attorneys usually invited their clients to a pre-hearing conultation. Your DWI lawyer will go through the police report and determine if you need to be present at the hearing or not. There are many options that will be offered by the DWI attorney, whether to void the suspension or to go with it but get a work permit. This is a one-to-one consolation where your DWI will discuss other important matters with you.
It is important that insurance companies do not can coverage unless you are found guilty of the charges laid upon you. A conviction would mean cancelled insurance coverage, or higher rates of payment.
DWi cases also include driving under the influence of drugs. There are thousands of arrests made on these charges too. These are serious charges with serious consequences, but with the help of a good DWI attorney with years of experience, you can still have a good outcome for your case.
