Attorney Ryan W. McAllister recently represented a client at a district court hearing in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. Our client was charged with driving on a suspended license under 75 Pa.C.S.A. 1543(a). Although our client was only looking at a fine in this case, a conviction would result in a collateral consequence with PennDOT of an additional 1 year license suspension. Our client needed her license to get back and forth to work, and a 1 year license suspension would have been devastating to her career.
Attorney McAllister first attempted to negotiate the matter with the police officer that issued the citation. However, in this case, the police officer was not willing to amend the citation. As a result, Attorney McAllister took the case to a summary trial. After hearing all of the evidence and the arguments of Attorney McAllister, the District Judge found our client “not guilty”.
Our client was saved from having to serve an additional license suspension of 1 year. She was extremely happy with the outcome of her case, and was grateful for the services of Ebner, Nevins & McAllister, LLC.
