San Jose Driving on a Suspended License Attorney

California Traffic Ticket Laws

Driving is a privilege, and one that you probably took for granted until you were legally unable to drive. Having your license suspended or revoked for a prior traffic violation or another reason, you know it’s hard to get to work, send the kids to their activities and have a social life. So you tried it, maybe just once, and were caught by the authorities and charged with driving on a suspended drivers license.

It’s also possible that you didn’t know your drivers license was suspended. This may be due to an issue like owing child support or failing to carry proper auto insurance. Now that you’ve been charged with driving without your license, you need the help of an experienced traffic attorney who can help you overcome the legal battle and get things back on track so that you can resume driving legally. Steven H. Nakano, Attorney at Law, is here for you. From his years of experience helping clients who’ve been charged with traffic violations, he knows the laws and arguments to use in order to get you the best possible outcome. If you have been charged with driving on a suspended license in CA, rely on our skilled traffic lawyer here in San Jose.

Consequences of Driving On a Suspended License

Every case is unique, but some of the common consequences for driving on a suspended license include:

  • A misdemeanor criminal charge, if convicted
  • Arrest
  • Mandatory jail time of 5-10 days
  • Additional jail time of up to 6 months
  • Impoundment of your vehicle for 30 days
  • Probation
  • Fines of up to $2,500
  • Adding 2 points to your driving record
  • Increased punishment if you have prior offenses

For some this traffic law violation will be less serious than others. But no matter whether this is your first time being charged with driving on a suspended license or your third, you need the assistance of an experienced San Jose criminal defense attorney.

In some cases Attorney Nakano may be able to have the case thrown out if the District Attorney can’t prove that you were in violation of the law. If the violation can be proved, he will encourage the court to give you a sentence that is favorable to everyone involved. Rarely is a lengthy incarceration the answer to a situation where no serious crime was involved. In any situation, facing charges without a suspended license attorney is taking a risk that you need not take.
