Protecting Your Driving Privileges
Like many people, you may need a driver’s license to do your job, to get to work or to transport your children around. But if you have been charged with driving under the influence (DUI) or driving without a license, you may be at risk of having your license suspended.
At the Savannah law firm of Andrews & Sanders Law Offices, we place a priority on preserving the driving privileges of clients who are particularly concerned about license suspension. If you are looking for a lawyer who will do what it takes to protect your driver’s license, contact us today for a free phone consultation.
Seeking License Solutions For People Charged With DUI
If you have been charged with DUI, your driver’s license may be at risk in two separate proceedings with the Department of Driver Services (DDS) and the criminal court.
- Administrative suspension of your license by the DDS will happen automatically if you refused a breath test or tested over the legal limit, unless you request a hearing within 30 days of the traffic stop and offer a successful defense against the accusations.
- Criminal conviction on the DUI charge will result in additional license suspension consequences that can vary depending on the details of your case.
We understand how important driver’s licenses are to our clients. We will do everything we can to avoid or reduce your license suspension consequences. If your license is suspended, we may be able to help you get a limited permit for specific purposes.
Addressing License Suspension In Criminal Cases
Driver’s license suspension is also a potential issue for anyone who is convicted of a serious traffic violation or drug offense. If keeping your driver’s license is a priority, we will keep this in mind in representing you on any criminal charge where license suspension is a potential consequence.
