A driver who either fails or refuses to take a breath or blood test after being arrested for DWI will have his or her drivers license suspended unless, within 15 days of the time he or she received a notice of a suspension, a hearing is requested.
If a request for a hearing isn’t filed within 15 days, you will lose your right to a license suspension hearing and your license will be suspended. Losing your driving privileges can have a devastating effect on your ability to get to work, go to school or do the million little things you do every day to take care of yourself and your family.
Avoiding a driver’s license suspension is even more important for people who depend on a commercial driver’s license (CDL) to do their job. Truck drivers, taxi drivers and even commercial pilots need to have a clean driving record and valid license in order to maintain employment.
Some people would rather go to jail than lose their license. That is a choice you should not have to make.

We are experts and have extensive experience working with the process, and can help you understand your rights and options.
In most cases, our clients do not lose their ability to operate a vehicle legally. We successfully challenge driver’s license suspensions at ALR hearings. Or in the case of a suspended license we also are successful at obtaining an occupational driver’s license (ODL) which enables our clients to continue to go to work or school.
