If you are convicted of driving on a suspended license, driving on a revoked license or driving without a valid license, you may have to pay hundreds or thousands of dollars in fines, fees and court costs. You may also be sentenced to jail for up to 12 months, have your vehicle impounded, lose your restricted license and have your license suspension extended.
Being convicted of one of these offenses may also violate the terms of your probation if you have previously been convicted of driving on a suspended license, DUI or DWI, reckless driving by speed,general reckless driving or any other criminal charges. Such a violation of probation may result in significant jail time.
Facing Serious Consequences? Get Serious Legal Representation
While the potential consequences of driving on a suspended license are serious, many drivers who are arrested believe that nothing can be done to improve their situation. In reality, drivers represented by an experienced traffic attorney are much more likely to avoid massive vehicle impound fees, fines, jail time or additional license suspensions.
At Nichols & Green PLLC, our attorneys have successfully handled hundreds of serious traffic cases, DUI matters and suspended license charges. We are not a general practice firm that dabbles in traffic defense. We are seasoned trial attorneys who concentrate on helping drivers overcome criminal traffic charges and get their driving privileges restored.
Our firm can defend you vigorously and help you protect your driving privileges if you are accused of driving on a suspended license in conjunction with:
- Unpaid fines and court costs
- Failure to pay the DMV license reinstatement fee
- Violation of a court order
- A DUI or DWI arrest
- A reckless driving charge, including reckless driving by speed or general reckless driving
- Failure to pay child support
- Failure to pay a civil judgment, such as a judgment related to a car accident
- Unexcused absences from school (for minors)
- A DMV suspension related to DMV demerit points or violation of DMV probation
In many cases, we can use our technical knowledge to get the charges dismissed or reduced. Depending on your situation, our lawyers may challenge an unconstitutional traffic stop, argue that you didn’t have notice of suspension or use one of many other possible defenses.
