Driver License Cases
A Maryland driver can find their license in jeopardy for numerous reasons, including: failing to pay prior traffic tickets, failing to appear for a court proceeding, failing to pay court fines, accumulation of too many points during a two year period of time, and Medical Advisory Board issues. Many times drivers are unaware of the status of their license or the reason why their license may be suspended or revoked. The attorneys at Goldstein & Stamm, P.A. have extensive experience with complicated licensing issues and can assist drivers in the path towards reinstatement.
A driver may also find themselves charged with crimes related to their driver’s license status. In Maryland, Driving Without a License, Driving While Suspended, and Driving While Revoked are all misdemeanors that carry the possibility of jail time if convicted. Because they carry the possibility of jail time they are “must appear citations” and therefore there is no possibility of just paying the citations in an effort to avoid having to go to court. Further, if convicted of these offenses the driver faces the possibility of the assessment of points which could again trigger a notice of suspension or revocation from the MVA.
There are many possible defenses to these crimes. It is important to immediately consult with an attorney if you are charged with any of these offenses to discuss the defenses that may apply in your case and to help assist you in sorting out any underlying licensing issues.
