Criminal Defense Attorney Tim Powers discusses driver's license issues with a DWI. DWI driver's license issues are a very complex area of law. In some cases, an offendant can face license suspension up to 40 days. To avoid a license suspension, a hearing will need to be requested by an attorney within 15 days of the offense. If not handled carefully, a DWI can cost you tens of thousands of dollars. We want to keep you on the road, so call the Law Offices of Tim Powers if you are facing a DWI charge to vigorously fight for you.
