I Got a Ticket for Driving with a Suspended License


With a suspended license charge, it’s a misdemeanor in the state of Rhode Island. The first thing I speak to the client about is do they know necessarily what is suspended in their license and if they don’t or if they do, we address that suspension. When I said if they don’t, what would need to be done I’ll run their license, do some work maybe operate a control and I’d find out whether it could be anything whether it would be a municipal court fine that wasn’t paid, whether it was an accident report that wasn’t filed or failure to put an SR22 or something in their history that has suspended them. I think the first direction I would take with this client is after I get the answer to what suspension is that, I would put the best foot forward to get that suspension reinstated and then deal with the suspended license charge.
