If you’re worried about your driver’s license or related criminal charges, call Michael Fayard, Criminal Defense Attorney, as soon as you can. There are many benefits to hiring a traffic lawyer.
A lawyer can help you appeal an administrative driver’s license suspension after a DUI arrest through the Administrative Driver’s License Revocation Office.
You have a short time to request an administrative appeal after an alcohol-related DUI. According to the ADLRO, you must request reconsideration within three days of your arrest. When you do, the ADLRO has eight days from your arrest to review your license suspension.
If you were arrested and charged with a drug DUI, then the ADLRO timeline is different. A criminal defense attorney knows the process and the critical deadlines.
If you’re facing a traffic violation or crime that could lead to a driver’s license suspension or revocation, the best thing to do is call a defense attorney. Don’t panic at the thought of losing your license. Attorney Fayard helps you understand your options.
Beating the charges is one way to avoid a suspension. You don’t have to automatically pay the fine for a speeding ticket or plead guilty to a DUI. You won’t have any criminal penalties if you successfully fight the charge(s) against you, including driver’s license suspension.
It’s also possible to avoid a suspension or minimize it. A lawyer can show that losing your license would be a significant hardship to you and your family. It may be possible for you to keep your license if you use an ignition interlock device and complete other requirements. Another option would be to recover limited driving privileges that allow you to drive between work and home.
While you cannot legally drive with either a suspension or a revocation, there’s an essential distinction between them.
If you aren’t sure whether you’re facing a suspension or revocation or to get help with either situation, a criminal defense attorney can help. Attorney Michael Fayard will explain your situation and what it takes to get your license back. The process varies depending on your specific circumstances.
