New York Suspended License Violation Lawyer
A valid driver’s license is proof that you have earned the right to pilot a vehicle throughout the state of New York. If your past driving history has led to a suspension or revocation of your license, you have, not only very simply lost your driving privileges, the court has ordered you not to drive. If you are stopped and cited for driving while your license is suspended, you could be arrested and you are facing a serious matter of violating a court order, a misdemeanor, or felony charges depending on the circumstances.
It is a criminal violation to drive when your license is suspended. Based on numerous factors, you could be facing devastating consequences such as fines of up to $5000, jail time, probation, an extension to your original suspension and the possibility of your vehicle being impounded. If you have been cited for driving with a suspended or revoked license, it is wise to seek the counsel of an experienced New York suspended license violation attorney.
