If you are charged with a DWI violation, and your license gets suspended, then your DWI attorney can help you go through the process of dealing with the DMV.
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.
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. This has to be done as soon as possible because you only have 15 days after receiving the notice to file a request for a hearing with the DMV.
A situation that you can experience after you have requested hearing with the DMV is being stopped by a police officer and you don’t 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. However, if he issues you a ticket despite the hearing request, then you should call the attention of your DWI attorney who can easily deal with this. 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.
Prior to the hearing with the DMV, your DWI attorney will invite you for consultation. 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.
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.
