If you're awaiting sentencing then you should already have an attorney. This is a question that that they should answer. If your current attorney doesn't handle occupational licenses, then you need a referral to someone who does. If you are representing yourself in this entire process, you shouldn't be. Even with probation, you could be looking at up to six months in jail. This is day for day time.

This is a question you should be asking your attorney. I agree with my colleague who said something like if you do not have a lawyer, you should get one.
Without knowing all the details of the case, no lawyer on avvo is able to give you a good "second opinion" on what will happen. If you are looking for a second opinion, you really need to speak with your lawyer about any lack of confidence in him or her, and if need be speak with a different attorney for that second opinion.
Answers on Avvo are for general information purposes only and should not be relied upon as legal advice. No attorney / client relationship is created by providing this answer. For specific advice about your situation, you should consult a competent attorney of your choosing.
Another issue to consider is the required waiting period for an occupational license following the mandatory driver's license suspension which will result from your DWI 3rd conviction. If you already have an ODL, I suspect it was obtained following the administrative ALR suspension. In any case, these are questions for your current attorney. Good luck.
