Driving on a suspended license?

In Florida, three convictions for the offense of driving with a suspended license, with knowledge that you were doing so, can become quite costly. Upon the third conviction the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles will suspend your driving privileges administratively - for 5 years!

Criminally, after three convictions for DWLSR (Driving While License Suspended or Revoked) you are eligible for Felony court if arrested for DWLSR again. In fact, you could potentially face up to 5 years in prison for a 4th DWLSR conviction.

This is heady stuff. It is very, very important to contact an attorney who handles criminal traffic matters if you're cited for DWLSR. Most Floridians fail to recognize the seriousness of this charge and simply believe that they have been issued a regular traffic ticket by the officer.

The most important and valuable service that a knowledgeable attorney can provide for a person cited for DWLSR is preventing her from being adjudicated guilty of the offense. If you were cited for driving in Florida with a suspended license then call my office so that we can help you with this problem.
