If you are in danger of losing your license and need a drivers license attorney, you want a license suspension attorney that knows how to reduce your punishment and a drivers license lawyer who can work on obtaining alternatives to license suspension. Ross Green, a former Deputy District Attorney, has successfully helped clients keep their licenses in San Mateo County California (CA), Redwood City 94063, San Francisco 94101 and the surrounding areas.
In order to be guilty of driving on a suspended license, the prosecution must prove that you drove a vehicle on a road or highway and knew that your license had been suspended.
The most common type of suspension is triggered by an arrest or conviction for driving under the influence (DUI Driver's License Suspension). A DUI arrest automatically suspends your driver's license. You have a right to have a lawyer represent you at any and all DMV hearings but you must set a hearing within 10 days of your arrest. Finding an attorney in timely manner can assist you in preventing lengthy and unnecessary suspensions.

Selecting an attorney is often a difficult process. Be sure to discuss with whomever you choose, any and all viable defenses. Should fighting your case at trial not be the best option, talk to your attorney about the possibility of an alternative sentence, such as community service, electronic home monitoring or work furlough. A plea bargain can often be negotiated to reduce fines or allow for an extended payment period.
