Driving On A Suspended License
If you were stopped and arrested for driving on a suspended driver’s license or driving without a valid driver’s license in Arizona, you face serious penalties. The attorneys of Matthew Lopez Law, PLLC, offer extensive experience helping people protect their future driving privileges.
Believe it or not, Arizona considers driving on a suspended license a class 1 criminal misdemeanor. A class 1 misdemeanor is the most severe categorization of misdemeanors and could lead to a maximum penalty of six months in jail, a $2,500 fine plus an 83% surcharge and five years probation. In addition to court penalties, you will forever have a criminal conviction on your record; meaning, if a potential employer asks if you have been convicted of a crime, your answer would have to be “yes.” You do not want to have a criminal conviction on your record. Hire an experienced Tempe driving on a suspended license lawyer to help fight your case.
