Why Should You Hire Clyde Burleson?
1. Clyde Knows the Importance of the Administrative License Revocation Hearing / ALR Hearing
The Administrative License Revocation Hearing (ALR) may be the most important part of your DWI defense. You only have 15 days after your arrest to schedule an ALR so you can keep your driver’s license. If you don’t request a hearing in the time, your license will be automatically suspended. In addition to hallowing you to retain your driving privileges, this hearing also gives your lawyer the opportunity to gather the facts and evidence he needs to successfully defend your DWI case to the best of their ability. Your lawyer will get the chance to question the arresting officer and any other witnesses, as well as receive any files the District Attorney’s Office normally would not let you have access to.
