Charged with a DWI?
A DWI is one of the most common crimes in Travis County. For many people, it is their first interaction with the criminal justice system, and for this reason, can be a scary and unnerving experience.
In addition to standard penalties of a fine and potential probation or jail time, there are unique consequences to your driver’s license as well. Importantly, you must request an “ALR” hearing within 14 days of your arrest to try to save your license, and get additional time to make preparations for when your license is suspended. It is important to hire an attorney before this deadline, or your DL might be suspended automatically.
Attorney Rob Chesnutt has plenty of experience with DWIs and can walk you through the process step-by-step. He can also help with Driver’s License issues and petition for an Occupational License if necessary.
