Allegheny County Driving Under License Suspension Attorney

Many take for granted just how much freedom a driving license provides. Driving to work, picking up dinner, or retrieving children from school are so engrained in day to day life that they seem more of a right than a privilege. That all changes when your license is suspended. Suddenly, something as simple as driving to your local grocery store for some milk becomes a difficult task and you must rely on somebody else for your transportation. For some, the necessity to drive takes precedent over a license suspension.

If you are caught driving under a suspended license, your penalties will increase and your freedoms will become further limited. Penalties increase if your license was originally suspended for DUI. With so much at risk, you should not trust your future with anyone but an experienced Allegheny County driving under license suspension attorney. Attorneys at Stewart, Murray, and Associates (SMA) Law Group have the experience and confidence necessary to examine evidence and formulate the best way to move forward.

What to Expect After Driving Under License Suspension

The penalties for driving under a license suspension vary—mostly depending on the cause for suspension. If you license was suspended after accumulating 11 or more points on your license, you will likely receive a summary offense. In Pennsylvania, a summary offense is the lowest form of criminal offense and it may be referred to  as a non-traffic citation.

If you receive a summary offense for driving under license suspension, you can expect your license to be suspended for another 12 months. Additionally, you may receive a fine of $200 and your offense will be recorded on your criminal record indefinitely.

Driving under a suspended license with a DUI can result in significantly higher penalties. If you are found driving under a suspended license stemming from a Dui, you could potentially receive two to three months of imprisonment.

If you are found with a Blood Alcohol Content (BAC) of .02 or higher, your penalties increase even more. Your first offense can be considered a summary offense, but come with a minimum of three months of imprisonment and a $1,000 fine. A second offense can result in a third-degree misdemeanor, a $2,500 fine, and six months to a year in prison. A third offense will increase to a first-degree misdemeanor, with a $5,000 fine and two to five year of imprisonment.
