Driving Under Suspension


Denver Driving Under Suspension Lawyer

If you have been charged with driving under a suspended driver’s license in Denver, Littleton, Greeley or any Front Range city or county, you may be facing serious penalties. Colorado is known for its strict laws regarding alcohol related driving and driving with a suspended or revoked license. It’s wise to contact an experienced attorney like Gregory Scott Mitchell of The Mitchell Law Firm as soon as possible following your arrest. The sooner we meet and begin discussing your case, the sooner we can start gathering evidence and planning your defense.

Driving Under Suspension in Colorado

Ideally, we want to get the charge(s) against you dropped, but in the event that’s just not possible, our goal is get the charges reduced and minimize the penalties assessed. Colorado criminal defense attorney Greg Mitchell has been fighting tough cases like these for decades and stands ready to fight to secure your freedom (and driving privileges) so you can go to work, maintain a normal life with your family and keep your job.
Not all driving under suspension cases are black and white; there are a lot of “gray” areas with this charge. Maybe you had an emergency situation where you had to drive because someone was ill or a child was in danger. This may be an effective defense against the charges you face. The bottom line is that license suspension and revocation are serious issues that can cost a great deal of money. In many cases, people have their licenses suspended for failure to pay child support, parking fines or speeding tickets, and until those issues are addressed, you will not be able to drive.

What Happens Now?

When the Department of Motor Vehicles suspends your license, you will be notified by certified mail. People often fail to receive proper notice and don’t even know that their license has been suspended. Others, however, do know their license is suspended and drive anyway. Regardless of what caused your license to be suspended or if you were aware of the suspension, you will have to go to the DMV and pay for the license to be re-instated, and, in many cases, a waiting period must go by or you may have to complete some type of alcohol or drug counseling—if your suspension is a result of an alcohol or drug related offense.

If you are caught driving with a suspended license, you must call an experienced Colorado criminal defense attorney like Greg Mitchell right away. The legal team at The Mitchell Law Firm will make sure the court examines the circumstances surrounding your case. We will find out if you were properly notified of the suspension, and we will explore ways to approach your defense. Ideally, we’d like to get the charges dropped or reduced, but if that is not possible, we will begin aggressively planning your defense.
An experienced Colorado DWAI attorney like Gregory Mitchell knows how to get alcohol related charges reduced or even dismissed altogether, but it’s imperative that you contact The Mitchell Law Firm as soon as possible following your arrest. With offices in Denver, Littleton, Colorado Springs, Fort Collins, Greely and Grand Lake, Colorado, The Mitchell Law Firm can defend you against any Front Range city or county charges you face.
