How DWI Lawyers deal with a Suspended License
People who are charged and found guilty of DWI will have their licenses suspended by the DMV, and this is where a good DWI attorney can help you out.
When a police officer charges you with DWI violations, then he will conduct a blood or urine test on you. After the blood or urine testing, if it shows that the alcohol levels in your body exceeds the allow limit, then the officer will take your results to the DMV and request for the suspension of your driving license.
The DMV will then notify you about this. It is important that you contact your DWI attorney after receiving the suspension notice so that he can take action and schedule a hearing with the DMV. The reason for this is because the lawyer has to make a request within fifteen days of the suspension notice.
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. If he still writes you a ticket for driving on a suspended license, then you will to bring it to your DWI attorney who can easily take care of it. But, if the officer does not see the hearing request on his computer and arrests you for driving on a suspended license, then you can ask your DWI lawyer to file charges against the DMW for not posting the request.
Prior to the hearing with the DMV, your DWI attorney will invite you for consultation. Together, you and your DWI lawyer will go over the police report and he will also advise you on whether you need to be there at the hearing with the DMV or if it is not really necessary. Other issues that the attorney will discuss with you are the different options regarding whether to void the suspension, or to stipulate to the suspension in order to receive a work permit. These are not the only options that you DWI attorney will discuss but much more and this is a one-on0one consultation conducted before the hearing with the DMV.
Until your guilt is established, insurance companies should not cancel coverage. If you are convicted, then you will not be able to get insurance coverage or they will increase your monthly payment rates.
DWi cases also include driving under the influence of drugs. There are many people arrested while driving high on drugs. Hiring a good DWI attorney will assure you of the best results if you are laid a serious charge of driving while high on drugs.
