Driving while suspended is a criminal allegationn that many people are arrested or cited for in the Wilsonville area. Most 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.
Driving while suspended is commonly fought through tough negotiation tactics and zealous advocacy, as there are very few defenses to these allegations (necessity, notice, and a few others). The first step in a driving while suspended matter is to meet with an attorney, get your defense lined up, and make a plan for how to proceed.
Common Reasons For Suspension
There are many reasons that driving privileges get suspended, a few of the most common reasons are:
- Failing a breath test;
- Refusing a breath or urine test;
- A suspension from a conviction for Hit & Run;
- A suspension from a conviction for Reckless Driving;
- A suspension for a Misdemeanor or Felony DUI;
Whatever the circumstances may be, we are here to help. For example, a DUI lawyer 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 initial reason you were pulled over. Further, an experienced lawyer for license suspension cases can assist you in gathering mitigating information that a prosecutor will want to see to determine how much leniency to give. A charge of driving while suspended can oftentimes get reduced (from a felony to a misdemeanor, or from a misdemeanor to a violation) through proper representation.
Hiring an experienced DUI lawyer who knows how to approach the nuances of cases involving driving with a suspended license is vital to reaching the most favorable outcome.
