What should I do about getting DWI attorney. Local in my town or one in town of occurance.
I was charged with first offense dwi 4-7-16 in Henderson co. I have a spotless record. Never been stopped, let alone arrested. I am beyond scared and have children to support.

DWI child endangerment, possible probation?
I have a previous felony (delivery of a controlled substance) that happened 6yrs ago. I was offered probation but was homeless & had no transportation so I took the jail time instead (180 days). I also have a misdemeanor theft ($60) from 4yrs ago. 3 yrs ago I got pregnant & turned my life around. On father's day my husband, 2yr old son, & myself were at the lake. Husband & I had a few drinks, I was the more sober one so I drove. Husband got in argument with someone at the lake & she called the cops saying she was worried about my child's safety. We got pulled over, I told officer I had been drinking & how much & followed her finger with my eyes. I didn't take breathalyzer on the scene but did when I arrived to the jail (blew a .10 something). Is probation possible?
Probation is possible you need to hire an experienced criminal defense attorney
Is an ALR hearing usually rescheduled for DWI?
My boyfriend had an ALR hearing scheduled for Dec 5 at 930 in Waco. When i adked him about the hearing, he claimed his atty assistant called and said atty had to reschedule. Im all too aware of driving without a license. I asked him where's his proof of it rescheduled is. An officer isnt going to believe him if he gets pulled over. Either he's lying or it has been rescheduled. Dont understand how he can drive without the proof of that.
Lawyer should have the reschedule. They do get re-scheduled regularly.,
