Driving under the influence (DUI) or Driving while intoxicated (DWI) is one of the most commonly committed crimes in the United States. Unfortunately, because this crime is so common, many people make the mistake of taking their DUI/DWI arrests lightly instead of seeking appropriate legal representation. If you have been charged with DUI, you need answers fast! In Texas, you only have 15 days to request a hearing on the issue, in writing, after receiving notice of suspension (generally received on the day of arrest) otherwise your license will automatically be suspended. Your first step should be to discuss your charges with a DUI/DWI lawyer at Vivian H. Phan Law Firm, PLLC, attorneys who are experienced and expedient and will move your case along quickly.
