Suspended Driver’s License Defense

Suspended Driver's License Defense in Florida: How We Can Help You

Have you been charged with driving while your license is suspended or revoked? Whether it’s a civil infraction or a criminal offense, the consequences of a DWLS charge can be severe. In Florida, a third offense is considered a felony, and you may face up to five years in prison and a five-year revocation of your driver’s license. Even for a first offense, the penalties can include jail time, fines, and points on your license.

At Albert Quirantes, Esq. Criminal DUI & Ticket Lawyers, our Miami Suspended License Lawyers understand the seriousness of a DWLS charge and are here to help you navigate the legal system. We go to court for you. Here are some of the ways we can assist you in defending against a suspended driver’s license charge:

  1. Reinstating Your Driver’s License: Our first strategy is to help you get your driver’s license back. We know that there are a variety of reasons why your license may have been suspended, and we can work with you to resolve any outstanding issues and get your license reinstated.
  2. Exploring Defenses: We can help you explore potential defenses to your DWLS charge. For example, the defense of necessity may be a valid argument in certain cases, and a jury trial may be available if you are facing jail time.
  3. Document Discovery: The state has to prove that you were aware of your license suspension, which can be difficult to do if the right documentation isn’t provided. We can help you with the discovery process and make sure that the state has provided all the necessary documentation. When they don’t do that on time, we may get the evidence against you tossed and the case dismissed.
  4. Experienced Representation: Our attorneys are well-versed in Florida traffic laws and have the experience needed to defend against DWLS charges. We know the players in the legal system and can predict how a given prosecutor or judge is likely to handle your case. Albert Quirantes has 35+ plus legal experience and Jorge E. Alonso has 40+ years experience. Attorney Evan Acle is a former Assistant Miami-Dade State attorney with thousands of legal cases prosecuted and jury trials tried to verdict.
  5. Hardship License: We can assist you in obtaining a hardship license if you qualify for one. This can allow you to drive to work or school while your license is suspended.
  6. Consolidating Cases: We can help you consolidate multiple cases into a combination that allows you to resolve all of them without permanently damaging your record or causing another suspension. This can help you get to “drive legal” status in no time.
  7. Payment Plans: If you need to work out a payment plan with an insurance company or declare bankruptcy to wipe out a judgment and reinstate a license suspended for financial responsibility, we can help you with that too.
  8. Evidentiary Rights: You have a right to a trial and confrontation of your accuser within a certain time frame. We will make sure that your speedy trial rights and other constitutional rights are protected throughout the legal process.
  9. Aggressive Representation: Our attorneys are aggressive advocates for our clients and will fight to get you the best possible outcome in your case.
  10. Personalized Attention: We understand that every case is unique, and we will give your case the personalized attention it deserves. We will work with you every step of the way to ensure that you understand your options and make informed decisions about your case.
