Driving on a revoked or suspended license

Driving on a revoked or suspended license.

People are often shocked to learn that a driving on a suspended or revoked license charge is a Class 1 misdemeanor, punishable by up to 12-months in jail and a $2,500 fine. Courts take driving on a suspended or revoked license charges seriously. The "I was just driving to work" excuse does not carry any weight in court.

A 3rd or subsequent driving on a suspended or revoked license offense carries a mandatory 10 days in jail. That is, if you are found guilty of a 3rd or subsequent driving on a suspended or revoked license offense, the Court has to give you at least 10 days in jail, but can award up to 12 months. The Court cannot suspend any of the mandatory time. Moreover, with mandatory time a person is required to serve all 10-days.There is no good time credit. 

Attorney Wegman will look at your driving record to determine whether proper notice was given and Mr. Wegman  may be able to assist you in obtaining a license before court. Having a license can sometimes result in a reduced charge or dismissal.

Robert was really helpful in getting me out of a reckless driving charge. He talked to the officer that gave me a ticket and got it reduced to defective equipment. Really cool guy! Thanks!

Mr. Wegman represented me at a work administrative board, March 23, 2016. He was a weapon of absolute destruction against a lying, vindictive ex-wife. He took the facts we had and the lack of facts by the other side and completely exploited them in a tactical, yet truly professional bulldog fashion. He did not shy away from what he believed in (me) and respected the laws that govern the venue. It was literally like watching an exorcism. *** It was the closest thing to divine intervention I’ve ever seen. Through this entire process I’ve had to deal with 6 or 7 different lawyers and hands down there is no doubt who is the best. I’d highly recommend him to anyone who needs a hard hitting true professional.

Mr. Wegman has been amazing. Typically this is not something to announce publicly however I feel that his help in my cases is worth me putting it out there.  I have had two traffic tickets and he managed to get me off on both. Without TMI, my record precedes me and that was the reason I hired an attorney to begin with. (By the way, I am not talking about any DUIs just for the record). Mr. Wegman is efficient, on top of things and has been a lifesaver in my case.  I highly recommend him!

Mr. Wegman represented my son in a complicated court matter.  He just turned 18 and an incident that should have resulted in a minor fine turned into two felony charges.  Our family was devastated and scared beyond measure.  Mr. Wegman represented our family with grace and determination.  He is well known and respected in his field and we are lucky to have chosen him.  Both of the charges were reduced from felonies to misdemeanors

"Mr. Wegman was a court appointed attorney for a very delicate case he represented me in. It went all the way to trial and he was awesome. The best. He fought for me and believed in me. Mostly he cared about my family and I. He genuinely cared. I highly recommend him to everyone. I paid him nothing and he gave me 100%. So I know he will do his best for you"
