New Occupational License Procedures in Harris County DWI Cases

According to Chuck Stanfield, the leading authority on occupational licenses in Harris County, the procedure for obtaining an occupational license in Harris County for DWI cases is in the process of changing dramatically. The DWI occupational licenses will apparently be heard by the Harris County Criminal Courts in the near future.

The Harris County Civil Courts have had jurisdiction to issue restricted driver's licenses for suspensions from Administrative License Revocation (ALR) Hearings.  This change will be a welcome surprise for criminal attorneys that handle occupational licenses.
