LICENSE SUSPENSION

These automatic civil revocations of your license generally last 30-45 days, or where you are accused of “willfully refusing” the blood and/or breath test, the charging officer may automatically seize your license. Thereafter, the Clerk of Court will forward a Notice of Suspension/Revocation to the Division of Motor Vehicles. This license suspension occurs before you have ever even entered a court room.  With these suspensions comes the loss of your ability to drive to and from work, medical appointments,  and  the ability to take care of your household duties.  If you are accussed of “willfully refusing” you are entitled to a hearing with the DMV. This is an extraordinarily complex area of law. In that each case or set of charges may be different, it makes sense to seek out experienced legal counsel. DWI defense attorney Thomas Kellis of the Law Office of Thomas A. Kellis, II.  can help you not only in criminal court but also with any proceeding allowed by the DMV.
In cases where the b.a.c is .08 or higher the charging officer may automatically seize your license for 30-45 days. Again this impacts your life in numerous ways. There are provisions in the law that allows people to have their privilege reinstated within 10 days for hardship purposes. These hardships include, but are not limited to; driving to and from work, medical appointments,  and  the ability to take care of your household duties. DWI defense attorney Thomas Kellis of the Law Office of Thomas A. Kellis, II.  can help you not only in criminal court but also help you get back behind the wheel in as soon as 10 days. This is an extraordinarily complex area of law. In that each case or set of charges may be different, it makes sense to seek out experienced legal counsel.
