When you have been convicted of a DUI offense or been arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence, one of the possible consequences is the suspension or revocation of your driver's license. For a period of time and under terms specified by the judge who oversees the matter you will not be legally permitted to operate a motor vehicle. The decision to defy this order can have serious repercussions and may result in the introduction of additional penalties, even if you were not driving while intoxicated under the suspension.
We understand that it can be difficult to carry out the course of your normal social and professional life without being able to drive yourself from place to place. Skilled and experienced legal representation can help you obtain a more favorable outcome if you are facing the imposition of further penalties for driving with a license that was suspended or revoked for a prior DUI offense.
