Suspended Licenses Following A DUI

Sarasota DUI Attorneys and Lawyers

License suspension is an integral part of any Sarasota DUI offense. When you are arrested, the officer will confiscate your driver’s license and issue you a suspension notice that serves as a temporary license. You will then have only 10 days to contact the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles to schedule your DMV hearing – to challenge the suspension of your license. Fail to schedule this hearing, or lose the hearing, and your license will be suspended. The same applies if you are convicted of DUI – your license will be suspended for a set amount of time.

Has your license already been suspended? Are you facing the possibility of license suspension? Contact a Sarasota DUI lawyer at Finebloom & Haenel as soon as you can. We can help you challenge your license suspension or can help you secure a hardship license. We represent clients throughout Sarasota and the surrounding areas in Florida, and offer a free initial consultation to help you get started. It is always our primary goal to address your concerns and provide you with the personalized attention and aggressive representation you need to secure the best outcome possible for your particular legal matter.

With the right representation at your DMV hearing and through the criminal court process, your chances of facing driver’s license suspension are much lower than if you accept a plea bargain or attempt to represent yourself at your license suspension hearing. However, it is possible that your license has already been suspended. If this is the case, an attorney can help you seek and obtain a restricted license to be used for limited purposes only (driving to and from work, school and for other necessities). This is achieved through a hardship license hearing and through meeting particular requirements to qualify.
