Defenses to Driving on a Suspended License in Maryland
A conviction for driving on a suspended license can have a major impact on your driving record and your future. When you enlist the help of our law firm, we will explore many angles to attack the state’s case and get the best possible results for you.
Our lawyers will look into the following questions when building your defense strategy:
- Did you receive a notice of suspension? The state of Maryland has to prove that you either knew or should have known that your license was suspended at the time you were stopped. If you never received a notice of suspension from the Maryland Motor Vehicle Administration, we will work hard to uncover evidence supporting your claim.
- Was there probable cause for your traffic stop? If a police officer stopped your vehicle without a valid reason, resulting in the discovery that you were driving on a suspended license, we will make a strong argument to have your case dismissed.
- Were you even driving? The state has the burden of proving that you were actually driving when you were cited for driving on a suspended license. Were you just standing near your car or taking something out of your car when you were stopped by police? We will make your side of the story heard.
We will leave no stone unturned when looking for deficiencies in the state’s case against you. Rest assured that we do not see any of our clients’ cases as minor. We will take your driving on a suspended license case seriously and fight for you as though we were fighting any other criminal charge.
