Driver's License Suspension in Murray County
You have 30 days to schedule a hearing to stop the automatic suspension of your driver's license after your arrest for DUI in Murray County. Most people are overwhelmed after a DUI arrest and may forget to schedule this hearing, or simply do not take care of the matter quickly enough. A failure to request an administrative license suspension (ALS) hearing can result in your license remaining suspended even if your DUI case is ultimately dismissed. Our team of Murray County DUI lawyers can provide legal assistance to handle these license suspension hearings, and can provide evidence at your hearing to challenge whether there were reasonable grounds for your arrest.
This administrative case involving your driver's license is separate from the criminal DUI charges. Our DUI Attorneys in Murray County can help you with all portions of your drunk driving defense, including the license hearing.
