Driving While Suspended

Driving While Suspended and Driving While Revoked Charges

William A. Stavros is a lawyer experienced at representing clients charged with Driving While Suspended and Driving While Revoked in both the State and Federal Courts. In Maryland State Courts both Driving While Suspended and Driving While Revoked citations carry serious potential consequences including, but not limited to jail time, substantial fines and points on your driving record. Jail time and substantial fines are also potential consequences in Maryland Federal Courts; the possibility of points and other Motor Vehicle Administration sanctions is, however, a more complicated issue in the Federal Courts in Maryland that is dependant upon Federal Jurisdictional law.

Point assessment can be a serious issue in a number of respects. Certain driving while suspended charges can result in points sufficient to trigger a revocation of your license. Out of state motorists may face point related issues under the reciprocity laws of the state that granted their license to drive. Potential consequences vary depending upon the precise citations charged and applicable law. These cases often turn, however, on technical defenses that an experienced attorney can assert on your behalf.

William A. Stavros has over twenty five years of experience defending those accused of jailable traffic violations. He has represented thousands of people in court during his career and understands what your freedom and your ability to drive a motor vehicle mean to you. Mr. Stavros will make sure that appropriate defenses are presented in order to help protect both your ability to drive a motor vehicle and your freedom. You may contact William A. Stavros for a free consultation by calling (410) 825-3300 or (410) 739-0794.

Additional Reasons to Retain an Attorney

Motorists charged with Driving While Suspended and Driving While Revoked should hire an experienced attorney as soon as possible after being charged. The United States Attorney’s Office and the various State’s Attorney’s Offices in Maryland that prosecute these charges have a distinct advantage over unrepresented defendants facing these very serious “Must Appear” traffic citations. Unfortunately for them, some unrepresented motorists may plead guilty to defensible charges because they do not understand the intricacies of the applicable law. Many Driving While Suspended and Driving While Revoked cases present with technical legal and factual defenses that can result in a not guilty verdict or a dismissal by the State or Federal Government. Other cases, depending on the circumstances, may be negotiated into a beneficial plea agreement. A lawyer experienced at handling these cases can be of great assistance in advising a motorist facing these “Must Appear” jailable traffic charges on the best approach for their individual situation.

Many motorists charged with driving on a suspended license or driving on a revoked license are unaware that that their privilege to drive has been suspended or revoked. Many others drive with knowledge of their suspended or revoked status because they are scared by the consequences of not driving for one reason or another. Some others choose to drive despite knowledge that their license was suspended or revoked but may have other mitigating circumstances. An experienced lawyer can be of great assistance in minimizing the numerous potential adverse consequences not only through asserting technical legal defenses but also by advising a defendant to take certain appropriate proactive steps prior to appearing in court.

Again, these cases often turn on technical defenses that an experienced attorney can assert on your behalf. Even if the case against you is provable by the State or Federal Government, the guidance and advice of an experienced lawyer can help place you in a much better position. Trying to go it alone can be a shortsighted approach that may result in consequences that could have been avoided by retaining an experienced attorney.
