Having your license suspended is a major life restriction. It can be challenging and sometimes impossible to get where you need to be on time once this right is taken away. The temptation to drive, especially when you need to get to work to make money, can be overwhelming. At The Cochran Firm South Florida, our criminal lawyers defend clients who have been charged with driving under a suspended license. You can contact our Miami criminal law attorneys for detailed information on your rights after a driving infringement and for specific details on how to protect yourself from serious consequences.
Potential Consequences After an Arrest
Having your license suspended means you are unable to operate a motor vehicle under any circumstances, and the punishment for being caught driving with a suspended license can be severe. Just one bad decision, one trip out on Miami, Ft Lauderdale, or Fort Myers roads, can put you in hot water with the state of Florida. And if you caused an auto accident and/or serious personal injury while illegally driving, you may face jail time, permanent license revocation, and other severe punishments. The criminal lawyers at The Cochran Firm South Florida will work hard to save your reputation and record from an error in judgment.

Depending on the details of your situation, you may be eligible for alternatives that are easier to swallow than large fines, jail time, and extended license suspension.
