Capable Suspended Drivers License Restoration Attorneys
If your Florida driver’s license has been suspended or revoked as a result of a DUI or from accumulation of points for several traffic violations, the Jacksonville law firm of Lockett Law, P.A. can help you get your license back.
Our skilled and experienced attorneys have helped hundreds of citizens in northeast Florida and statewide regain their driving privileges and pursue a suspended license defense, even in “hopeless” cases involving multiple suspensions and convictions. We represent clients in administrative license hearings before the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles.
The DUI Administrative Suspension Hearing
In addition to criminal penalties for drunk driving, an arrest for DUI in Florida results in automatic and immediate suspension of one’s driver’s license. The arresting officer issues a temporary permit allowing the defendant to drive until the driver’s license hearing. Lockett Law, P.A. will arrange for a DUI Administrative Suspension Hearing and attend the hearing for you to argue against the suspended license charge. We have had significant success at these hearings resulting in the reinstatement of full driving privileges for our clients without the need for a hardship license or a hard time period. We have also had success handling DUI Administrative Suspension Hearing appeals to obtain reinstatement of driving privileges for our clients.
The Habitual Offender License Restoration Process
We offer aid to clients whose trouble often stems from a simple, original charge. The person is cited for DUI, speeding or reckless driving. They fail to pay the ticket, or they have accumulated too many tickets. The license is pulled. The person continues to drive and is arrested for Driving While License is Suspended (DWLS) and failure to show insurance. Now the driver is a “habitual offender.” And so it snowballs, and the suspension is extended or the license is permanently revoked.
Believe it or not, the situation is often repairable. Lockett Law, P.A. unravels the administrative mess, analyzing old tickets and court proceedings to determine if relief is available. In many situations, we have achieved amazing results: the issuance of a valid license, without the fear of being arrested or ticketed, and without jail time for the DWLS charge. We can usually clear many of the compounded charges to clean up your criminal record as well.
