Santa Clarita Driver’s License Suspension Lawyer
Protecting Your Driving Privileges
In the state of California, the government holds the right and ability to suspend a person’s driver’s license if that person’s behavior indicates that their driving would be a risk to themselves or others on the road. Usually, the suspension range lasts for 6 to 12 months, but in many other cases an individual might be barred from driving for several years. Regardless of the length of time, having a license suspension will severely affect your quality of life. You should consult a skilled lawyer as soon as possible.
At Lias Law Firm, we are keenly aware that there are multiple reasons one can receive the unlucky result of an unsuspended license, usually due to honest mistakes. Fortunately, our Santa Clarita driver’s license suspension attorney is ready to use the comprehensive strategies to get your life back on track.
Why Would Your License Be Suspended?
There are countless traffic violations which may end up causing your driver’s license to be suspended. These violations are sometimes unfortunate accidents where you are not at fault, yet you may still face criminal consequences.
Some of the most common offenses include:
- Being involved in a car crash without the right insurance, or having expired insurance
- Forgetting or being unable to make a court appearance
- Being convicted for operating a motorized vehicle under the influence of alcohol or drugs
- Refusing to follow a police officer’s direction to take an alcohol or drug test, even though such a refusal is legal
- Having multiple points on your driving record
- Failure to pay child support on time
- Failure to report an automobile accident with the proper authorities
It is clear from this list that in certain cases, your age, medical condition, or even legal justification in refusing an optional DUI test could still create a circumstance where the authorities will deny your right to drive. You may simply be in the wrong place at the wrong time, but are still forced to give up your license. As Southern Californians, we rely on our cars for work, school, and a number of other obligations. This is why it is important to have a skilled lawyer defend your license.
Provisions for Failing to Appear or Pay
Another reason your license might be suspended might simply be because of an accumulation of unpaid traffic tickets. Notices can often go unnoticed in the mail, leading the court to suspend your license. When you have a hold on your license for failure to appear (FTA) or failure to pay (FTP) on traffic tickets, or your ticket has been given to collections, count on our firm to help you get your license back.
Our Santa Clarita driver’s license suspension lawyer is experienced in getting traffic tickets out of collections and sent back to court to get the hold off of your license. Because traffic tickets can be very expensive, especially after a failure to appear violation is added, we can even work to get your fees significantly reduced, or have your entire ticket dismissed.
