I have been charged with Driving While Intoxicated. What do I need to do about it with respect to my license?

Contact an attorney immediately to represent you on the criminal case and explain to the lawyer the concerns you have regarding your license. It would also be advisable to have your criminal lawyer contact someone who is familiar with the licensing statutes and the attitude the licensing agency has towards DWI and chemical dependency. In some cases an initial proactive approach can overcome an agency’s presumption that an arrest or conviction for DWI means that you are chemically dependent and need to be in a monitoring program or on a disciplinary order.

To talk to a Texas professional license attorney about how your DWI charge may affect your professional license, please contact the Leichter Law Firm by calling 512-495-9995.
