In todays society, we need our driver's license to get to work, to shop and to live. Without your driver's license, your way of life will be severely altered. If your driver's license is at risk of being suspended or revoked, you need an experienced criminal defense attorney on your side.


What Can Cause Your Driver's License To Be Suspended?


There are a number of reasons your license could be suspended, such as neglecting a vehicle emissions test, DUI, or failing to pay a fine or fee on time. 


Some offenses that can cause driver's license suspensions include:


  • Convictions for speeding

  • DUI charges

  • Too many moving violations

  • No insurance

  • Passing a stopped school bus that is loading or unloading passengers

  • Possessing or consuming alcohol by a minor

  • Speeding in a school zone

  • Traffic offenses 

  • Driving around a railroad signal


Driver's License Revocation


We can help you avoid getting your driver's license suspended or revoked by thoroughly reviewing your case, getting a decrease of the charge or dismissal.


Unlike a suspension, there is no set reinstatement date for a revocation. Your license could be revoked for a number of reasons, such as:


  • DUI conviction

  • Eluding police

  • Felonies involving motor vehicles

  • Leaving the scene of an accident


Restricted work, school and medical permits can be available during suspension or revocation periods, and can be available in some cases.


The loss of a driver's license due to suspension or revocation will have a dramatic effect on your insurance rates - premiums will remain high long after you get your license back.  We recognize the importance of a driver’s license and the negative impact a suspension or revocation can have on your life.
