Newport News VA Driving On Suspended or Revoked License Attorney
Virginia Drivers License Suspension Lawyer
People convicted multiple times for DUI or serious traffic offenses, may have the driver's license suspended or revoked. If you are arrested for driving with a suspended or revoked license, you face jail, fines, and a permanent criminal record. In certain cases, habitual offenders may have the driving privileges permanently revoked in the state of Virginia.
At the law office of John J. Rice, I work closely with clients to pursue alternatives to jail and the permanent loss of their license. In order to reduce the charges or sentence against you, it will be necessary to undertake steps to prove to the court your willingness and desire to address drug, alcohol, and other personal problems. My office can help you find a drug and alcohol counseling program and get the help you need for other issues as well.
I can help you demonstrate to the court that you are prepared to drive and act responsibly. To schedule a consultation regarding your case, contact license suspension lawyer John J. Rice today.
Driving on a Suspended License and License Revocation
The law office of John J. Rice advises and represents clients who have lost their driver's license due to the following:
- DUI / Drunk driving
- Excessive speeding

- Passing loading / unloading school bus
- Driving with a revoked / suspended license

Establishing Your Willingness to Drive Responsibly
Driving is a privilege, not a right. Judges and prosecutors have heard every excuse in the book and are not interested in the reasons why you chose to drive on a suspended or revoked license. Especially in cases involving alcohol and drugs, the court wants an indication that you are prepared to drive and act responsibly. Getting medical, psychological, or drug and alcohol help is the first step in establishing your credibility in the eyes of the court.
As your attorney, I explore alternatives to lengthy suspensions and permanent driver's license revocation that can impact your ability to work and impact your ability to take care of daily needs. While the outcome of your case will depend on your prior driving history and the circumstances surrounding your arrest, what you do to establish your willingness to work with the court is important as well.
