A good DWI attorney will be able to help you get back your license after it has been suspended as a consequence of your conviction for a DWI violation.
A person arrested for DWI charges are usually subjected to blood or urine testing. 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.
The DMV will then notify you about this. Once you receive a notice of suspension, it is important that you contact a DWI attorney immediately so that he can request a hearing on your behalf. After receiving the suspension notice, your lawyer only has 15 days to file a request for a hearing with the DMV.
If a police officer stops you after you have requested a hearing from the DMV, you may not have any temporary license in your possession. If the officer will look at his computer, it will reveal that you have already requested a hearing from the DMV. If he still writes you a ticket for driving on a suspended license, then you will to bring it to your DWI attorney who can easily take care of it. If you arrested for driving with a suspended license since the officer did not find any request on his computer, then you can ask your DWI attorney to file charges against the DMV for failure to inform the police of the hearing request.
DWI attorneys usually invited their clients to a pre-hearing conultation. Together, you and your DWI lawyer will go over the police report and he will also advise you on whether you need to be there at the hearing with the DMV or if it is not really necessary. The options that will be discussed by your attorney are whether to try to void the suspension or to stipulate to the suspension so that you will be allowed to drive your car to work. These are not the only options that you DWI attorney will discuss but much more and this is a one-on0one consultation conducted before the hearing with the DMV.
Insurance companies should not cancel your insurance coverage until your DWI guilt is established. You insurance coverage can either be cancelled or you will have to pay higher rates if you are convicted of your DWI case.
It is not only driving under the influence of alcohol that you can be arrested for but also 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.
