The penalties for driving on a suspended/revoked license can be severe if the reason for your suspension involved alcohol or drugs. If you were suspended for other reasons, an attorney can help clear your underlying problem in hopes of getting the ticket dismissed.
If your suspension was alcohol- or drug-related, an attorney can probe for weaknesses in the state’s case. Did the police have probable cause to stop you? If you were stopped for speeding, was the speed limit clearly marked? Even if the evidence against you is overwhelming, an attorney who is respected in the courthouse may be able to negotiate a more favorable plea agreement that you could on your own.
