Those arrested in Missouri for DWI face both criminal charges and civil “sanctions” as a result.
Many people are at least somewhat familiar with court procedure and will continue their criminal case until the court denies further attempts.
You must keep in mind that in Missouri, the Department of Revenue can suspend or revoke your license starting as soon as 15 days after your arrest for DWI.
If you received a notice like this one (http://dor.mo.gov/forms/2385.pdf) when you were arrested, or even if you are not sure if you did or not, you must act quickly to preserve your right to appeal the administrative suspension.
Having an attorney with the experience to appeal your suspension can mean the difference between having a chance at keeping your license, and losing it without the right to appeal.
