"I was just arrested for DWI 2nd… what will this do to my license?"

The answer to this question in Texas is complex, and depends on many factors that are not known based on the question. I would need to know if you refused to submit to a breath test, and how recently you had "ALR Contact" and how recently your prior DWI Conviction was.

I am often asked about the process that occurs after your license is confiscated subsequent to a DWI arrest.

As mentioned on several other pages of this site, there are actually two different processes working against you at the same time. The Criminal Case and the ALR / License Suspension process.

As a general rule, when you hire me, you need to do nothing regarding this process. I take care of filing all motions, requests, and appearing at the hearing. You do not need to do or attend anything. Despite my taking care of everything, it is nice to know what is going on. I always keep my clients updated as to where they are in the process.
