What makes a DWI so complex?

Generally, a person arrested for DWI is asked to provide a breath, urine, or blood sample for testing to determine their blood alcohol level.  If that person refuses testing or testing reveals an alcohol level of .08 or more, his or her driver’s license is invalidated in an Order of Revocation, which also serves as a seven-day temporary license. 

Two processes take place separately: first, the criminal case, begun by the traffic ticket; and second, the Driver’s License Revocation case, sometimes called “Implied Consent,” in which you must essentially sue the State to get your driver’s license back and remove the revocation from your driving record. 

All of these processes move quickly and occur simultaneously, making it critical that you consult with an experienced DWI attorney to ensure that your rights are protected.
