Personalized Representation for Traffic Offenses
When your license has been suspended for a DUI or any other reason, you are expected to adhere to the limitations put upon you. If you are found driving with a suspended license when you have been restricted from doing so, you could face additional consequences. At Stein, Lotzkar & Starr, P.S., our Bellevue criminal defense attorneys can help you if you are being charged with driving with a suspended license.
Defending Driving While Suspended Charges
If you believe you were not in the wrong and that you needed to drive, there may be legal defenses available to you. Our Bellevue traffic offense attorneys will need to investigate the details of your arrest and the original suspension. We strive to find the most intelligent and effective strategy which applies directly to your case.
A few examples of solutions we may use include:
- You were not aware that your license was suspended: If you have not been alerted that your license was suspended, you could not have violated any specific terms.
- You were allowed to drive with a restricted license: Depending on the circumstances of your original suspension, you may have been given a restricted license which allows you certain privileges.
- The original suspension was incorrect: If we can prove that your original license suspension was unfair or handled improperly, we may be able to get the charges dropped.
