Driver’s License Suspensions And Traffic Tickets
Specialized Driver’s License
We all need transportation to our jobs and other essential places. If your license has been suspended for any reason, it is important to talk to an attorney about your options. On Jan. 1, 2015, Indiana completely overhauled its laws with respect to suspended drivers. Many people who could not previously get a driver’s license now qualify to get a specialized driver’s license or to get their suspended driver’s license reinstated without any special conditions imposed on them. You may be eligible for a specialized driver’s license (previously called a hardship license or probationary license) under these new laws. Call me to learn more about whether you qualify and how to apply for a specialized driver’s license.
Commercial Driver’s License Suspensions
If you have a commercial driver’s license for your job and you have been issued a ticket while driving for work or even if driving your personal vehicle, you need a lawyer on your side to help you navigate through the complicated laws involved with commercial driver’s licenses. Do not make the mistake of assuming a minor traffic matter cannot have serious consequences on your ability to maintain employment or your commercial driver’s license. Call me to discuss your pending legal case.
Even if you do not have a commercial driver’s license, any traffic citation or criminal charge can have serious consequences, ranging from increased auto insurance rates and required defensive driving class to substantial fines/court costs and even further suspension of your driver’s license. If you have been cited for a traffic violation or charged with a criminal offense involving operating a vehicle with a suspended license, contact me. I can help.
