Dallas, Collin And Denton Counties ALR Hearing Lawyer
An ALR hearing is a win-win situation – for you and attorney Kimberly Griffin Tucker – but it is time-sensitive, so read on.
What is it?
An ALR hearing is a civil action separate from the criminal case where the DPS attempts to suspend your license for your refusal or failure of the offered test. The suspension time periods vary depending on several factors. Refer to your Notice of Suspension for the one that applies to you.
Was I told about this?
When you were arrested for DWI, the officer should have asked you whether you wanted to submit to providing a specimen of your breath or blood. You should have also been advised of your right to take or refuse the offered test and the consequences of each.
Should I request this hearing?
Why is the ALR so important?
It gives you and Mrs. Tucker a mini preview of how your case will play out at trial by allowing her to gain invaluable discovery (like a copy of the police report) and depose the police officer (the benefits of this alone are too great to go into here).
The results of this hearing, along with the review of your DWI videotape, will go a long way toward helping you decide whether to plea or try your case.
As an added bonus: If the attorney for DPS cannot prove their case against you, there will be no license suspension.
How do I request this hearing?
If you hire The Law Office of Kimberly Griffin Tucker, P.C. immediately – that is, within the 15-day time period – Mrs. Tucker will do all the work for you.
However, if you are unable to do so, request it yourself so that you don’t waive this incredible option. Get the form here.
What if I don’t request it or miss the deadline?
If you fail to request this hearing, your license will be suspended automatically upon the 40th day from the date you received the Notice of Suspension.
