In Florida, it is possible to lose your license if you have been charged with a crime or other violation such as:
The reality is that in Florida you cannot get around without a car. If you lose your license, then you may be unable to go to work, go to school or support your family.
While many crimes can result in license suspension, there are rules and procedures governing the suspension and revocation of your license. You need an attorney who is experienced in working with the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles, in appealing DMV decisions and who knows how to get your license back when it has been lost.

Under the Florida "three strikes" law you could lose your license for five years if you are a "habitual offender." A habitual offender is a person who receives three convictions for traffic offenses within a five-year period. If you are a habitual offender and you are convicted of another traffic offense, it is a felony and you could face up to five years in prison. Our attorneys will aggressively defend you from traffic violations and criminal charges to protect your rights, your license and your freedom.
With the recent recession and the difficulty of finding jobs, the pressure has lifted on revoked licenses, as more people need transportation to support their families. Many people who have had lifetime suspensions are now eligible to have their license restored. However, license restoration is not an easy process and it is difficult to do on your own.
Our attorneys will work with you to determine if you are eligible to get your license back. We can then guide you through the restoration process and vigorously advocate for the return of your driving privileges.
Before you enter a plea or agree to a plea bargain, it is important to consult an experienced criminal defense attorney who can assess the effect of your plea on other aspects of your life. For example, a guilty plea to a possession charge can lead to the suspension of your license for one to two years. There may also be immigration consequences if you are a noncitizen.
