How Can We Help?

The testimonials and endorsements listed do not reflect all of the feedback the firm has received. Each case is unique and must be evaluated on its individual merits. Prior results do not guarantee a similar outcome.

How We Help

Our NOL, suspended license lawyers will be with you every step of the way.

If you’ve been charged with driving with a revoked license, the consequences can continue to get worse and eventually could lead a permanent revocation of your driver’s license or to jail time.

We will not only do our best to minimize the consequences of the charge in court but also look at your driving record to see what you need to do to get your license back.

In our experience, prosecutors are hoping that individuals can have their driving privileges restored and will work with people to help this happen.

Make sure you get ahead of this by letting our team work on your case.

Our Approach

We listen.

During our initial conversation with you we will get information about the circumstances of your charge and about your driving record or driving history.

We inform.

Once we have these details we can explain the potential court, license and insurance consequences you are facing.

We plan.

We will then create a detailed plan of action for your case to make sure that your traffic ticket is resolved in the appropriate manner. Our mission is to produce the best possible outcome on your traffic ticket.

Frequently Asked Questions for Asheville Driver License Lawyers:

Can a judge overturn a suspended license charge?

Yes, a judge can find you not guilty of any criminal offense, including a revoked license charge. In these cases, the driving record is what will carry the day. In most cases, if your case is taken to trial and your license was revoked, according to the driving record, you will most likely be convicted of that charge.

Can I appeal a suspended license?

If you are convicted by a district court judge, then your misdemeanor charge can be appealed to superior court for a jury trial. Here, you can have another opportunity to argue your case in front of a jury.

Can I drive to work with a suspended license?

No, not unless you have a driving privilege that allows you to do so.

Does license suspension go on criminal record?

If convicted, yes. Your license suspension goes on both your driving history and criminal record history permanently in North Carolina.

How do I reinstate my suspended license in NC?

The first thing we do, when reviewing a license revocation charge, is look at the person’s driving history. That is the key for figuring out why the license was revoked and what can be done to fix it, in order to get the license reinstated.

How do I check my license status?

There are two ways to check your license status. You can either call the North Carolina DMV and go through the automated system or you can request your driving history through the North Carolina DMVs online portal. With the online option, you’ll be able to get a non-certified copy of your driving history within minutes.
