DWI: Drivers License Suspension
In Texas, if you’re charged with a DWI & DUI related crime, or arrested and found to have illegal drugs in your possession while operating a motor vehicle, you’ll likely face a suspension of your Texas Drivers License in addition to any other criminal penalties you’re forced to endure.
Administrative License Revocation
The process of executing the suspension of your Texas Drivers License, Administrative License Revocation, begins immediately after you’ve been charged with DWI or DUI making the need for immediate legal representation paramount if one is to maintain some form of lawful driving privilege in Texas.
We Have 15 Days To Save Your Texas Drivers License
If you’re arrested by law enforcement, and you’re considered to be intoxicated, or refuse sobriety testing, or fail sobriety, blood or breath testing, the Texas Department of Public Safety will move to have your Texas Drivers License suspended unless you’ve retained competent legal defense whose intention is to counter these offensive actions by the State of Texas by requesting a hearing to counter the actions with the allotted time frame which is 14 days.
We at the Law Offices of Tad Nelson & Associates consider any move to suspend your Texas Drivers License offensive on the basis that you have yet to be proven guilty in the court of law, and the court’s actions are based on nothing more than the word of the officer, regardless of evidence.
If you’re represented by attorney Tad Nelson or attorney Amber Spurlock, you can rest assured that our law firm will take the steps necessary to ensure that you can lawfully drive in Texas in lieu of your upcoming court appearance for the originating charge.
Driving is a Crime in Texas
If you don’t take some action to protect your “driving privileges” in the meantime, and you’re stopped by law enforcement for any reason, including minor traffic violations during routine traffic stops, and found to be operating a motor vehicle with an invalid or suspended license, this represents the potential for new criminal charges in the form of a new misdemeanor criminal case for DWLI (Driving While License Invalid) or DWLS (Driving While License Suspended) which each have their own penalty guidelines that will only serve to make matters worse for your situation.
