How a Loss of License Can Occur & WHAT I CAN DO TO GET IT BACK FOR YOU
Many criminal convictions result in an automatic loss of license (even when a vehicle is not involved in the crime, as in a drug possession case), and, unfortunately, it has been my experience that lawyers sometimes do not tell their clients that they will lose their license upon being convicted. The client then finds out about the suspension only upon getting a notice from PennDOT. This is unfortunate and should never occur.
A loss of license can also be triggered, of course, by a DUI conviction, a conviction for Driving While Suspended, for Driving Without a License, for School Bus violations, and, most notably, for being a minor in possession of or consuming alcohol. The last are the most frequent source of trouble in Pennsylvania because neither the police nor the Courts notify the client that there is a suspension of 90 days, 1 year or 2 years attached to a conviction. The uninformed client usually pleads to the charge because “it’s only a ticket” and then gets that nasty notice from PennDOT.
I have not even touched on medical recall of driving privileges for medical reasons. This can happen when seeing a physician for a seizure disorder or just a loss of consciousness (i.e., fainting) and the physician notified PennDOT, which then recalls driving privileges pending physician clearance to drive. These cases happen all the time and require prompt action.
What I have learned over the years is that the laws of the Commonwealth are traps for the unwary when it comes to a loss of license. Many criminal defense lawyers do not know what they are doing with license suspensions and do not notify their clients appropriately. Also, sadly, too many people give up hope that they will ever get their license back. This is nonsense. An experienced attorney can assist in preventing a license suspension from occurring, managing it if it happens, and restoring lost driving privileges. Mr. Logan has done work in this field for many years and has litigated multiple issues countless times with PennDOT.
“TOM ACHIEVED RESULTS FOR ME THAT NO ONE EXPECTED,”
well above and beyond what his own goals for the case were. He was kind, compassionate and always made me feel like an honorable human being despite the trouble I found myself in. He was easy to reach, responded always in a very timely manner, and was well prepared. I would recommend Tom to anyone in need of legal representation.
“GETTING IN TO LEGAL TROUBLE IS NEVER FUN.”
The first thing that stuck out to me was how quickly Tom reached out to me after doing an online inquiry. Because of the nature of my case it required immediate attention and he save me a lot of headaches. Secondly, my anxiety throughout was put to rest as I knew I was in good hands and that Mr. Logan would go above and beyond to protect my interests. I could not be more satisfied with the representation I received and the advice I was given. He's as good as it gets.
“I COULD NOT HAVE ASKED FOR BETTER REPRESENTATION.”
Tom was very prepared and ready for any possible outcome during my entire defense. His aggressive strategy, in my particular case, caused the DA to over look charges that no doubt would have been added if they had enough time to properly investigate. If those charges were added, it would have been very easy for them to prove my guilt and I would have lost everything. For this I am utmost grateful for Tom's stunning work! However what meant more to me than his remarkable representation was that he genuinely cared about my well being. Wisdom can be offered by all ages, and Tom shared a lot of it with me.
“A LAWYER YOU CAN COUNT ON,”
I was so grateful to have Thomas Logan assigned to my case. He immediately helped put my mind at ease by focusing on information and best next steps. Together we devised a plan and put our plan into action. I trusted that he would guide me towards the most favorable outcome for my case and he did. I highly recommend this lawyer with complete confidence.
