Driving on a Suspended License Charge Dismissed

Thursday, June 27th, 2013

Attorney Ryan W. McAllister recently represented a client who was charged with Driving on a Suspended License under 75 Pa.C.S.A. 1543(a). Our client had failed to respond to a traffic ticket in another county in Pennsylvania, and, as a result, his license was suspended indefinitely. When our client was pulled over for a minor traffic violation, the officer ran our client’s information and discovered his license was suspended. The officer then issued our client a ticket.

Our client was very concerned because if he was convicted of the 1543(a) offense, PennDOT would have hit him with another whole one (1) year license suspension. Needless to say, our client, who needed his license to commute to work and support his family, could not afford a one (1) year suspension of his operating privileges.

Therefore, at the Berks County District Court hearing, Attorney McAllister requested a hearing before the Judge. After questioning the officer and making a convincing legal argument to the Judge, our client was found “NOT GUILTY” of the citation. Our client was very happy with the outcome of his case.

Appealing Traffic Citations Saves Points on Drivers’ Licenses

Friday, April 22nd, 2011

This week I (Attorney Dan Nevins) represented two motorists in Summary Appeals who had been charged with speeding violations in Berks County, PA. In each case I was able to negotiate with the Commonwealth to reduce the violations to save my clients both money and points on their licenses. As we have posted before, the Pennsylvania vehicle code calls for points to be assigned based on how fast over the speed limit a driver was operating his or her vehicle. Accumulate enough points and a driver is facing a Departmental Hearing and/or a License Suspension or even a License Revocation.inflatable water slides

It may be possible to negotiate a reduction in charges at the time of the hearing before the district judge.
