DWI Administrative Hearings

Your St.Louis DOR Administrative Hearing Lawyer

The Department of Revenue (DOR) has the statutory authority to regulate your ability to drive. That means a DWI/DUI arrest can result in a temporary suspension and possibly revocation of your driving privilege. The DOR administrative hearings are more complex than most people thing. It is not a matter of saying sorry, but rather involves the ability to address the accuracy of the field sobriety tests, blood, breath and/or urine analyses and the arresting officer’s actions. Don’t take a chance of becoming just another file, legal statistic, and someone without a license.

If you are dealing with a DUI/DWI issue, you need to take prompt legal action to schedule your DOR administrative hearing and to have an experienced lawyer by your side.

Failure to pay attention to this time frame could mean you waived important rights or opportunities to fight your case. The Law Offices of John M. Lynch, LLC, provides aggressive representation for clients in St. Louis, Missouri, with DWI issues, including administrative hearings.
