Circumstances Leading to a Driver’s License Suspension or Threat of Suspension
Remember: There is always a way forward.
From our McKinney-based law firm, we can assist you in driver’s license suspension cases such as:
- Administrative license revocation (ALR): Get legal counsel after a driver’s license suspension when you failed or refused to take the breath test before a driving while intoxicated (DWI) arrest.
- DWI conviction suspension: Even after a DWI conviction, you can apply for a temporary license called an occupational driver’s license (ODL) that will allow you to continue driving for work, school, and essential household duties.
- Habitual violator suspension: Act promptly if you have been notified that you have had too many traffic tickets within a specific time frame. You may be able to contest one or more of those tickets.
- State surcharge suspension: Did you fail to pay the taxes associated with points on your driver’s license? Paying what you owe may solve the problem. In the meantime, you may qualify for an ODL. Ask us for help streamlining the process of getting an ODL and then getting your regular license back.

What Are the Drunk Driving Laws in Texas?
In Texas, laws for drunken driving are based upon your BAC (blood alcohol concentration), that is above the legal limit, while operating a vehicle. The enforced legal limits are below:
- Under the age of 21, a BAC of .02 or more
- Drivers of all ages, a BAC of .08 or more
- Any commercial vehicle drivers, a BAC of .04 or more
Anytime you exceed this limit, you run the risk of getting convicted for a DWI.

- Blood alcohol level
- Circumstances of the offense

What Are the Penalties for DWI in Texas?
