License Suspensions and ALR Hearings
When you are arrested for driving while intoxicated, the police officer who arrests you takes your license and gives you a Notice of Suspension. You only have 15 days from that date to schedule a hearing to contest your administrative license revocation. The topic at these hearings is specific Texas DWI laws. Only an experienced Houston DWI attorney can properly protect your rights in these cases.
There are severe penalties for a DWI in Texas, depending on the facts of the case, including:
- 72 hours to 10 years of incarceration
- Up to a $10,000 fine
- License suspension of 90 days to 2 years

The penalties for BWI, or boating while intoxicated, are similar to DWI penalties. If someone is injured or killed as a result of a DWI, the penalties are even more severe. In addition to the penalties listed above, a judge may also impose probation, court costs, community service, classes, drug and alcohol testing and other conditions as part of a DWI sentence.
