Austin Suspended License Attorney
Driving is a right that many of us take for granted until that privilege is threatened or taken away. In Texas, your driver's license can be suspended for a number of reasons, including:
- Failure to appear in court on a traffic citation
- Conviction of a drug or alcohol-related offense
- Being deemed a habitual violator (four moving violations within a 12-month period or seven moving violations within a 24-month period)
- Unpaid surcharges or child support
The Law Office of Thomas Swain, PLLC, in Austin, Texas, provides dedicated representation for Texas residents who face revocation of their driver's license, no matter the reason. We will appear with you at administrative hearings, and we can represent you in appealing any adverse rulings from an administrative hearing.
If you drive for a living, losing your commercial driver's license (CDL) could result in you losing your job. There is no need to put your livelihood at risk.
Don't risk your future. Driving with a suspended license is an offense that can lead to your license being suspended for an even longer period of time. A person who is convicted twice of driving with a suspended license faces jail time.
Driver's License Suspension In Georgetown
Some motorists are not aware they are driving with a suspended license. If you are stopped by police for drunk driving and you refuse to submit to a breath test or blood test, or if your breath sample resulted in an alcohol concentration of .08 percent or higher, and a hearing is not requested to fight a Texas DWI suspension, your license will be suspended.
If your license has been suspended due to drunk driving charges or the accumulation of too many traffic tickets, you have 15 days from being notified of the suspension to contest it by means of an Administrative License Revocation (ALR) hearing. It is a good idea to retain knowledgeable legal counsel at this hearing in order to increase your chance of getting the suspension reversed and having your driving privileges reinstated.
If you do end up with a suspended driver's license, we may be able to help you obtain an occupational driver's license (ODL), which will allow you to drive to and from work and school or to take care of necessary living duties such as grocery shopping or taking your children to school or after-school activities.
