Administrative Driver's License Hearing Representation
We defend Texas drivers at administrative driver's license hearings whose license is in jeopardy of being suspended, revoked or cancelled by the Texas Department of Public Safety. When you are entitled to request a hearing to contest the suspension, revocation or cancellation of your Texas driver’s license, the Texas Department of Public Safety will send you a notice of suspension to the address that it has on file for you. If you get a notice of suspension, contact us immediately, as you have no more than 20 days from the date of the notice to request a hearing. These are strict time limits. Miss the deadline and you will be suspended by default.
We will request a hearing on your behalf, and defend you at the administrative hearing held by a judge. You will attend with us. If we succeed at this hearing, you will retain your driving privileges. Those who hold a commercial drivers license have more limited rights to relief.
Sometimes, the DPS becomes aware that you might have a medical condition that prevents you from safely driving your vehicle. These are very serious allegations, because should you default or fail to submit adequate medical evidence, you will lose your driver’s license indefinitely. We will work with you and your doctor to insure the best case can be made for your continued driving. Once again, time is of the essence to prevent a suspension by default.
If you hold a commercial driver’s license, while we can almost always keep you driving for non-commercial purposes, you have very limited rights to maintain commercial driving privileges. We have been successful in protecting these rights, but it is not easy. The best solution, of course, is to hire us whenever you first receive a ticket or a notice. If at all possible, we strive to prevent any suspension in the first place.
In the unfortunate event that you have already defaulted or lost your administrative hearing, click this link to our occupational license page. In any event, do not ignore your situation. If your license becomes suspended, cancelled or revoked, and you continue to drive, you are at risk of being arrested for driving with an invalid driver’s license. As a commercial driver, you may lose your commercial driving privileges. Contact us immediately.
