Reinstate License Lawyer in West Palm Beach

A valid driver’s license is necessary to get to work, pick up your kids from school, and handle chores like grocery shopping. Thus, if your license has been suspended or revoked, every task outside of your home becomes a serious challenge. Fortunately, you might be able to remedy your situation with help from a West Palm Beach license reinstatement lawyer.

First, your lawyer will review the reason for the suspension or revocation and evaluate the possible legal remedies. Then you can take action to reclaim your driving privileges.

With more than 30 years of experience, Ronald S. Chapman has helped countless clients navigate the legal system. Reach out to the firm today to discuss your circumstances.

Grounds for Revoking or Suspending a License

Your license can be suspended or revoked for a myriad of reasons, including:

  • Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol
  • Failing to pay child support
  • Causing death or injury while driving
  • Accumulating too many points on your license
  • Driving without auto insurance

This is far from a complete list of possible reasons for your suspension. Contact our West Palm Beach lawyer today to discuss options to reinstate your driver’s license.

License Reinstatement Process

The process to reinstate a license varies depending on why it was suspended or revoked. If it was suspended due to driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol, your West Palm Beach license reinstatement lawyer can request a hearing within 10 days of the arrest. Then the lawyer can present a case to challenge the suspension.

On the other hand, if past-due child support or another unmet financial obligation is the reason for the suspension, your attorney can work to set up a payment plan so you can catch up. Then you can take steps to get your license back.

While these are general examples, your attorney needs to discuss the specifics surrounding your case. Thus, contact our firm today to schedule a consultation with a lawyer.

Applying For A Hardship License

If your driver’s license is suspended,, you might still be eligible for a hardship license. Florida offers two types of hardship licenses. First, you can apply for a business license to allow you to drive when completing necessary activities, such as commuting to work and school. You can also use this to go to medical visits, attend religious services,, and drive at work if your job requires it.

A work purposes only hardship license is the second option. If approved, you can use it to drive to and from work, but you cannot drive anywhere else.

It will be much easier to state your case after hiring a license reinstatement lawyer in West Palm Beach. Contact our firm today for a one-on-one consultation with an attorney.

Real Clients, Real Testimonials

Mr. Ron Chapman, what can I not say! All the good he has done for me and my family, also the community. I was first introduced to Mr. Chapman by the community that he serves. He was very honest and forthcoming. I asked him one question! I asked him would he fight for my family, my son he said YES! He DID, and still is fighting even after the fact! Mr. Chapman still serves when I have a question or problem, he and his staff go out of their way to get answers for me. Mr. Chapman and his staff care about how I am doing, am I okay. You see Mr. Chapman represented my son. First, the State said 30, then 20, then 15 years, then 10 years. I said NO let’s fight! And Mr. Chapman did! My son got off with grace and dignity even the jurors were amazed by Mr. Chapman and my son. He should be a judge Mr. Chapman, but the little poor people, we need him! I love you, Mr. Chapman.
Ms. Johnson
