Take Every Precautionary Step to Help Protect Your Future
Having a suspended license typically results from a history of serious traffic violations or DUI offenses, therefore the prosecution will do everything in its power to put you behind bars if you’re caught driving on a suspended license. It may seem like all odds are against you, but when you retain our legal counsel and learn about the strategies we can apply in your defense, we’re sure your confidence will be restored.
If you’ve been arrested for driving with a suspended license, contact us online or call (206) 222-7701 as soon as possible so we can begin working on your defense. Our Kitsap County license suspension attorneys understand that urgent and emergency circumstances may require you to drive, even on a suspended license, and we don’t want you to be punished for taking appropriate action in these circumstances.
Driving is both a necessity and privilege, and we recognize that temporarily losing your right to operate your vehicle is difficult to adjust to. That’s why it is in your best interest to turn to us in your time of need. There is nothing more important to us than your freedom, and we will work tirelessly to defend you against the charges that have been made in your name so you can maintain those freedoms.
