The ALR Hearing Process
The ALR hearing is separate from the criminal case, and as such, you could lose your license even if you are never convicted of drunk driving. That said, the ALR hearing can help prepare you for the criminal case because much of the discovery and questioning of witnesses is the same.
During the process, we will gather police reports, breath test results, and other relevant documents to review. We may question the arresting officer and challenge the weaknesses in his or her testimony. The prosecuting attorney must prove definitively that the traffic stop was justified and you were driving with a .08 blood alcohol content. It is our job to challenge this and show that you are not a danger on the road. And with more than 25 years of legal experience, we are good at it.
In cases where the Administrative License Judge does not reinstate your license, he or she may grant an occupational license. An occupational license gives you limited driving privileges to and from work, school, day care and other specific places. It can allow you to live your life as normal while your criminal case is pending.
If you have been charged with driving under the influence, you will face license suspension. Don’t wait to contact a drunk driving defense attorney to protect your driving privileges.
