One of the first steps we will have to take is to understand and address the underlying reason for the suspension. If the reason for a suspension comes from an unpaid traffic ticket such as a photo radar ticket and your failure to go to traffic school because you never received the photo enforcement ticket in the mail, that is very different than driving on a suspended license from a previous DUI / DWI conviction. Judges and prosecutors can sometimes be swayed to a more lenient penalty or a more beneficial direction for you if the underlying reason for the suspension or revocation is one not of intent, but lack of understanding or an inability to pay based on family and economic circumstances. If you are unaware of the reason that your license is suspended, cancelled or revoked, we can assist you to begin the first step of that process.

The next thing we will have to do is, if you have multiple driving infractions on your record, to separate the cases by court and then attack each case one by one. Before we can do that, we will have to research each case and identify and cross-reference the MVD restrictions for each court case. After that, we will help you clear the underlying court cases by setting aside default judgments, establishing which cases have outstanding fines that need to be remedied, and to request that the court quash any outstanding warrants. Once that is done, usually after several months of work and waiting from the Court, we can obtain a court abstract that can be provided to the MVD, thereby lifting the overall suspension.

IF YOUR LICENSE IS SUSPENDED, CANCELLED, REFUSED OR REVOKED AND YOU HAVE A NEW COURT MATTER, UNDERSTAND THERE ARE VERY GOOD REASONS TO CONTEST DRIVING WHILE SUSPENDED TRAFFIC TICKETS

Good reasons individuals should contest traffic tickets are to prevent an outrageous miscarriage of justice and prevent further revocation or suspension of your privilege to drive. Additionally, there may be other options such as attending traffic survival school or defensive driving school. It is paramount to protect your clean driving record and to prevent your vehicle insurance premiums from being increased by attempting to reduce the rate of accrual of points against your record as well as to prevent the continuation of suspension or revocation periods.

UNDERSTAND THE FUTURE POSSIBLE CONSEQUENCES THAT WILL ARISE FOR YOUR INACTION OR FAILURE TO APPEAR IN COURT TO FIGHT YOUR TICKET

Suspended, cancelled, refused or revoked license violations seem like a minor offense, but if not handled properly, it can turn out to be a huge inconvenience and costly experience that never seems to go away. For instance, if you fail to appear for your court date or comply with a court’s sentencing requirements, a default judgment may be imposed against you. Once a default judgment is imposed against you, the court will notify the Motor Vehicle Division to suspend your driving privileges indefinitely or until you rectify the matter with the court and your case will be placed on default status. Being placed in default will result in additional fines and fees to the court and MVD to reinstate your privilege to drive. After a certain period of time, the outstanding fines and fees will go to collection. And once your matter goes to collection, which is typically sent to an outside collection agency, you will not be able to negotiate with the Court to make any changes until the collection amount outstanding is paid in full. That means, you will have to pay the entire collection balance before you will be able to reinstate your driving privileges. This is because the collection agency is typically an independent entity hire by the Court.

Additionally, depending on the jurisdiction of the offense, a court could notify a credit bureau of any unpaid or delinquent balance, thereby negatively affecting your credit. Also, the Court could notify the Arizona Department of Revenue for interception of your state income tax refund (if any), seizing any tax refund moneys owed to you. Further, the Court via the MVD will prevent the re-registration of your vehicle(s) in Arizona. The State could also take action against you by garnishing your wages or attaching a lien to your property in order to settle unpaid fines and administrative fees, including the costs of collection.
