It is important to hire an attorney who is familiar with the law regarding criminal driving while suspended. It is equally important to hire an attorney that is familiar with the court you are cited to appear at, the prosecutor in charge of your case, and the judge who will hear your case. This type of knowledge cannot be read; it is learned through experience.
Many people charged with this crime think that it is a done deal, and do not bother to consult with or hire an attorney to help them. This is a mistake. Although driving while suspended charges are tough to win at trial, there are many ways that these charges can be fought.
For example, an attorney can meet with you and review your entire history to determine if the suspension is valid or not, and determine whether there is an issue with the reason you were pulled over. Further, an attorney can assist you in gathering mitigating information that a prosecutor will want to see to determine how much leniency to give. Many times a charge of driving while suspended can get reduced from a misdemeanor to a violation, which can help you mitigate the damage that a driving while suspended conviction can cause.
