ALR Hearings & License Suspension

Representation from Our Experienced Kansas City DWI Lawyer

The Guilfoil Law Group can help you address your impending license suspension after a DWI arrest. Missouri is one of the 42 states that subject those charged with DWI to a review by the Missouri Department of Revenue. Upon receiving your case, the DOR will suspend your license through an Administrative License Revocation, or ALR hearing.

The silver lining is that an ALR license suspension can be challenged in administrative court. Our Kansas City DWI attorney, a Founding Member of the DUI Defense Lawyer's Association, will fight for your license. Call us today at (816) 470-0172.

Types of License Suspensions

There are multiple license suspensions that you can face. These include:

  • A point suspension from any criminal convictions for the accumulation of points
  • 90-day suspension if you have a chemical test above the legal limit
  • A 1-year license suspension for refusal of any chemical test requested by the officer
  • A 5-year license denial for a second DWI conviction being processed by Missouri Director of Revenue
  • A 10-year license denial for any third or more DWI conviction being processed by the Missouri Director of Revenue
  • Restricted driving privileges

At the Guilfoil Law Group, our Kansas City DWI lawyer understands how necessary driving is. Having focused in DWI law for the last 15 years, our founding attorney, J. Matthew Guilfoil, not only has the knowledge, but the passion to see your case through to the end.
