License Suspension Defense

Driving with a suspended or revoked driver's license can result in your arrest. In many cases, people may have not even realized that they were driving with a suspended or revoked license when charged with aggravated unlicensed operation (AUO).

AUO is a matter that is handled in criminal court and your prior convictions and the number of suspensions you’ve had, could lead to the possibility of a felony conviction.

No one wants to face a felony charge and a possible prison sentence over driving-related issues. Our firm utilizes our experience to help us create strategies that are tailored to communicate clearly and persuasively with judges.

A mandatory prison sentence could result if you are charged with driving on a license suspended as a result of a prior DWI or DWAI offense.
