Driving Without a License
It is illegal to drive without a valid driver’s license, whether you never had one or you had one which has expired or been suspended or revoked. Violating this law can result in a fine and, although it is rare, jail time. It can also affect your ability to obtain a license in the future.
Driving With a Revoked or Suspended License (DWLR)
If your license has been suspended or revoked and you are stopped by a police officer, you will face serious criminal charges. Our attorneys have twenty years of experience in successfully defending people charged with this serious crime. Many times, depending upon your case, we are able to negotiate these charges down to either much less serious matters or even a simple traffic infraction.
