Driving While Suspended
Bergen County Suspended License Defense Attorneys
If you get arrested for driving with a suspended license, you could face significant jail time. Driving while suspended is a serious offense in New Jersey, and a conviction can escalate a relatively simple municipal traffic case into a true criminal matter.
If you have been arrested for driving while suspended, seek legal assistance from experienced Hackensack & Bergen County, New Jersey criminal defense lawyers. At Brickfield & Donahue, we will explain your legal options and help you make a choice that has the best chance of minimizing negative consequences.
Reasons Your Driver's License Can Be Suspended
It is possible to get arrested for driving while suspended before you know your license has been suspended or revoked. Your driver's license can be suspended for a number of reasons, including failure to make a court appearance, failure to pay fines, failure to carry proof of insurance, and drug or alcohol use while driving.
Lack of knowledge that your driver's license was suspended is not generally a defense, but it may be relevant to your case. Our criminal defense lawyers will investigate all the circumstances of your case in order to determine the best way to proceed in order to protect your right to drive and your freedom.
Both Mr. Brickfield and Mr. Donahue are former New Jersey prosecutors who understand the New Jersey criminal justice system from the inside out. We use our extensive knowledge of how police and prosecutors build cases against criminal defendants to help our clients minimize the negative consequences of arrests on charges such as driving while suspended.
Knowledgeable Bergen County Legal Counsel
