Upon arrest or conviction for certain offenses, a person is subject to a driver's license suspension. Many people choose to drive out of necessity, get pulled over, and then are re-arrested. This then compounds the problem by adding additional surcharges and fees which prolongs the license suspension.
We help our clients avoid this situation by filing a Petition for Occupational License. It doesn't allow a person to drive whenever or wherever they please, but it does provide a person to drive to and from work, to court, to our offices, and for a small window of time each week to take care of their essential needs.
In cases where we contest a driver's license suspension we prepare the Petition for Occupational License well in advance of the hearing so that there is never a disruption in our client's ability to fulfill a professional obligation.
