In Texas, when you get arrested for a DWI, there is also automatically an ALR (administrative license hearing) concern. What is an ALR? What is an occupational driver’s license? Getting a DWI is very stressful and scary. What is very important to understand is that unlike other criminal cases, a DWI involves two actual cases: a civil case, known as the administrative license hearing (“ALR”) and a criminal case, the DWI charge. The Coffey Firm handles all aspects of the DWI as well as the ALR/license process.
