Can a driver's license (DL) suspension be avoided? Yes, it can but
at what cost? At this point you need to be realistic, committing a crime
comes with consequences. Generally, those costs are either financial or
inconvenience, but more often than not, both! However, for the commercial
driver, who drives for a living or family man that must commute to and
from work, a DL suspension can be very costly. Therefore, to keep your
license, you must hire a knowledgeable and experienced traffic ticket attorney.
You need a driver's license for almost everything, and it's almost
impossible to make a living without one. But sometimes, through a lack
of attentiveness or bad luck, you get a ticket which could suspend your
driver's license, unless you get the required help.
Hiring your friend’s cousin, who happens to be a very good family
law attorney does not necessarily translate to success in traffic court.
In fact, you are most likely wasting your money, even if he or she takes
your case at a very reasonable rate. Family law and traffic law have very
different rules. And, none of the trial settings they are accustomed to
will be present in a traffic court.
A traffic ticket lawyer spends every day fighting for the driving privileges
of their clients. They deal with the same court clerks, judges, and law
enforcement (LE) officers on a near daily basis. This is not to say that
any of those official will bend the law because they like the traffic
ticket lawyer, but the traffic ticket lawyer is familiar with their system,
what arguments have worked in the past, and what won’t work.
We are talking about your livelihood, how you make your living, and the
convenience of getting in your car and driving to work, as opposed to
finding a ride because you no longer have a license or much worse, you
have no job to go to because you no longer have a license.
You Have Two Points Already and Just Received Another Ticket
If you already have two points, you could be just your current ticket away
from a DL suspension. A two-point violation could mean a license suspension.
Even a one-point ticket will result in a “Notice of Intent to Suspend
Letter,” which is processed when you reach Level 3 via a conviction
or responsible accident that gives you three points. The DMV will suspend
your license if you get just four points in twelve months.
If you talk to a lawyer, he may be able to help you with your case. Even
if he can't get a dismissal, he can probably get you a deal for probation
rather than a suspension.
