As a former Assistant District Attorney, clients turn to me, attorney V. Erik Petersen for assistance with their driver's license suspension issues. At my firm, the Law Offices of V. Erik Petersen in Harleysville, Pennsylvania, I aggressively stand up for my clients' rights and work hard to find creative solutions to their problems.

Individuals can receive a license suspension for a wide variety of reasons. Some of the reasons can include:

    * DUI (Drunk Driving) charges
    * Too many points on your license
    * Old and forgotten tickets
    * Underage Drinking
    * Drug Possession
    * Failing to respond to a traffic citation
    * Reckless Driving
    * Racing on the Highways
    * Refusing to supply a breath or blood sample in a DUI case

It is important to know that you have rights and may be able to fight your license suspension. If caught early enough, we can fight the ticket that lead to the suspension.

After receiving a ticket, you have 10 days to plead not guilty and attempt to prevent the license suspension. If your license is suspended, PennDOT (Pennsylvania Department of Transportation) sends you a letter advising you of the suspension that you are about to face. You then have 30 days to appeal PennDOT's decision to suspend your driver's license.

Driving on a Suspended License
If you are caught driving with a suspended license, you may be facing an additional suspension on top of your original suspension. If you are caught driving with a license that was suspended due to a DUI, you may be facing an additional suspension, in addition to the threat of jail and large fines. Regardless of the reason behind your license suspension, it is essential that you enlist the assistance of an attorney that can help you aggressively fight the new penalties that may be imposed upon you.
