Driving On A Suspended License Benefit From Over 27 Years of Trial Experience

Sarasota Suspended License Attorney

DUI Lawyer: Suspended Driver's License

A driver arrested for a DUI faces the loss of driving privileges and other penalties. Field sobriety checkpoints catch many drunk drivers, while others who drive erratically or operate their vehicles in an unsafe manner are subject to criminal DUI charges. An officer will confiscate a driver's license and hand the driver a citation, temporary license suspension, and a notice to contest the citation within 10 days with the DMV. The laws vary from state to state concerning driving on a suspended license.

In Florida, the laws are specific and depend on whether a driver had prior knowledge of a license suspension. A driver facing charges of driving on a suspended license should seek legal advice and contact a Sarasota criminal attorney for guidance on the proper steps to take considering the seriousness of the offense. Attorney Scott Miller is an experienced DUI defense attorney and helps many clients charged with driving on a suspended license. He understands the difficulties that people face when they have a suspended license and the consequences of driving during the suspension period. His goal when defending clients is the best possible outcome considering the criminal charges involved.

Why Hire a Sarasota DUI Defense Lawyer?

  • First conviction - Second degree misdemeanor
  • Second conviction - First degree misdemeanor
  • Third conviction - Third degree felony
