Charlotte DMV Hearing Defense Attorneys
If your license has been suspended or revoked due to a traffic violation or DWI, you may be facing the prospect of never driving again. Your first and possibly only chance of restoring your driving privileges will come at a hearing before the Division of Motor Vehicles (DMV).At the law firm of Jetton & Meredith, we have extensive experience representing clients at DMV hearings throughout North Carolina. We will provide you with the personalized representation you deserve and fight to restore your driving privileges as soon as possible.
Time is of the essence when your license has been suspended or revoked. The first step is calling us to discuss your situation with one of our Charlotte DMV hearing defense lawyers.
We have considerable experience representing motorists who have lost their licenses as a result of moving violations such as DUI/DWI, refusing chemical tests or driving with a suspended license. We also challenge suspensions and revocations that have occurred due to accumulation of 12 or more points from violations in a three-year period such as:
- Passing a stopped school bus (five points)
- Reckless driving, hit-and-run, following too closely, driving on the wrong side of the road or illegal passing (four points)
- Running a stop sign or red light, failing to yield right of way, driving through a safety zone, speeding in excess of 55 miles per hour or speeding in a school zone (three points)
- Other moving violations or failure to retain a child in a restraint or seat belt (two points)
- Littering out of a car (one point)
At your DMV hearing, we will be your advocate, pressing for the reinstatement of your full driving privileges. In some cases, we are able to obtain limited driving privileges through a “motion for appropriate relief,” a process where a previous case is reopened in order to renegotiate an outcome that will result in reinstatement.
Can You Keep Your License Prior To the Hearing?
The DMV has the authority to allow you to maintain your license while you await your hearing, but you must first ask for a hearing. As soon as you receive a letter from the DMV, we can begin ensuring that the proper steps are being taken to position you for a successful outcome.
