Des Moines Driving Charge Lawyer
Was Your License Revoked in Polk County or Elsewhere in Central Iowa?
In Iowa and all other states, driving is considered a privilege. That privilege can be revoked if you are convicted of driving offenses such as driving under the influence (DUI) of alcohol or drugs or other moving violations. All of these traffic violations may result in serious penalties, including large fines, higher insurance rates and, most importantly, the suspension of your license.
If your driver’s license was suspended or barred, you may feel helpless and unsure about how to get it reinstated. At the Des Moines law office of Timothy M. Duffy, P.C., attorney Duffy can help you fight the charges you face to get your license back. He understands that you need your license to get to work and other places, so he will do what it takes to protect your driving privileges.
Strong Defense Against License Suspension/Revocation
Certain driving charges such as DUI or leaving the scene of an accident have an associated point value to them. If you accumulate too many points on your record within a six-year time frame, your license may be suspended or revoked. Even if the offense does not have a point value, such as speeding tickets or parking violations, you may still be considered a habitual offender due to an overall negative driving record.
Furthermore, depending on the number of points you have accumulated, your license may be barred for anywhere from two to six years, meaning you will be unable to drive at all during that time. If you are caught driving while your license is barred, you could face up to two years in jail.
Lawyer Timothy Duffy has more than 25 years of experience in criminal defense. Wherever possible, he will aggressively seek to reduce the charges you face, or have them dismissed altogether. If the case against you seems strong, however, he will do what it takes to minimize the penalties you face, negotiating on your behalf to achieve the best possible outcome.
