If you are currently facing a criminal charge of Driving with a Suspended License in Fort Myers, Sarasota, Naples, Bradenton, Cape Coral, Port Charlotte or Punta Gorda contact the Drivers License Lawyers at Viacava & Cantor so we can fight for you.
Having a valid drivers license is invaluable because when you don’t have a valid drivers license you are vulnerable to being arrested by the police each and every time you get into a car to drive. With each subsequent arrest following the first arrest for Driving with a Suspended License the penalty becomes more and more severe. Further, each time you are arrested for Driving with a Suspended License or Driving without a Valid Drivers License you are adding the headache of dealing with a criminal charge to the already existing headache of doing what needs to be done to reinstate or validate your driving privileges.
Driving without a valid license can also put people in a compromised position for additional arrests as you or your car may be searched incident to the arrest for Driving with a Suspended License or Driving with No Valid License and any contraband discovered by the police during that search may serve as the basis of additional criminal charges. If you or a loved one has been arrested for Driving with a Suspended License or Driving with No Valid License contact a lawyer from Viacava & Cantor so we can immediately begin defending you on your criminal charge and guiding you through the process of getting your driving privileges restored by the DMV.
