License Revocation Defense

At the Smalley Law Firm, we regularly represent drivers who are facing license revocations-their licenses may be at risk due to DUI/drunk driving violations, reckless driving violations, or other criminal matters. We are here to help drivers who face this stressful situation; we will help you navigate not only your criminal defense issues but also your interactions with the Department of Public Safety.

Why hire a lawyer for a driver's license revocation?

Driver's license laws can be surprisingly complex. After an arrest, you only have 15 days to preserve your right to defend your driving privileges. If you miss the deadline then a first time offense can result in a six-month revocation and you could be required to have a breathalyzer installed in your vehicle for eighteen months after that. With these tight time constraints and high potential costs, it is in your best interest to contact a lawyer as soon as you receive a DUI/drunk driving violation or other driving arrest.

If you have received a DUI or other driving violation, contact us online or by phone at 405-801-2222 to schedule your free consultation.

How can a driving defense lawyer help?

A defense lawyer will help you understand the various issues at stake in your case. By reviewing all of the relevant evidence-and conducting an independent investigation if necessary-we can identify potential legal issues before they arise. Some of the most common issues in driver's license revocations include:

  • Revocation procedures for driver's licenses and commercial driving vehicle licenses.These issues mainly involve the criminal proceedings against you, including indictment/arraignment, plea negotiations, and trial. This aspect of our representation may involve investigations of the prosecutor's evidence against you, as well as careful consideration of any blood alcohol testing or field sobriety tests conducted in connection with your arrest.
  • Remedial measures.A driver's license revocation may include provisions that allow you to rehabilitate and recover your driving privileges. We can help identify possible remedial measures and help you understand the full scope of those measures. Examples of remedial measures include alcohol and drug substance abuse courses (ADSAC) or DUI driving school.
  • Ongoing monitoring.If your license has previously been suspended or revoked, you may have regained it on the condition that you submit to ongoing monitoring through an ignition interlock device. These devices prevent you from starting your car if a breath alcohol test produces a reading equal to or greater than a threshold level. The Department of Public Safety regulates ignition interlock devices. We can help you understand the requirements and penalties associated with ignition interlock devices.
