Before pleading guilty to any criminal charge it is wise to first speak with a criminal defense attorney. If you plead without the assistance of an experienced attorney you may be waiving available defenses or admitting guilt to facts that do not constitute a criminal charge or without recognizing that your rights were violated. Even if you have already been sentenced my office may be able to challenge the plea or advise as to any appealable issues.
Call my office so that I can advise you about:
1. The status of your driver's license. Our office will check relevant databases to obtain your driving history and advise you about your suspension issue(s) and what course of action to take to potentially prevent a suspension or reverse a current one.
2. The suspension period related to the specific ground of your suspension.
3. If you may be eligible for a Hardship License.
4. The possibility of having your driving privilege restored.
