Driving With a Suspended Drivers License In New Paltz

I SuspendedDriversLicense

Aggravated Unlicensed Operation

The name of the charge in New York is aggravated unlicensed operation (AUO), but the crime is driving with a suspended driver’s license. As a misdemeanor, AUO is a more serious crime and carries greater penalties than a normal traffic violation. If you are facing charges of driving with a suspended driver’s license, you need a lawyer who is tough and experienced.

I have more than 20 years of experience as a New Paltz driving with a suspended driver’s license attorney. At the New Paltz, New York, law firm of Lawrence R. Trank, PLLC, I can help defend you against these charges to minimize your charges or have them dismissed.

Driving With a Suspended License Is More Serious Than a Simple Moving Violation

Aggravated unlicensed operation is a misdemeanor, which means it is more serious than a simple traffic violation. The law takes unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle very seriously, with penalties ranging from additional fines to a possible jail sentence if you are convicted.

Causes for Driver’s License Suspensions

There are many reasons why your driver’s license might be suspended, including:

Regardless of the reason for the license suspension, if you are charged with driving with a suspended license, I have the experience to defend you.

While I do utilize a paralegal behind the scenes, I will be the one returning your calls and representing you in court, so you can rest assured that your case is in good hands.
