Striving To Reinstate Your Suspended/Revoked Driver’s License
For most people, driving is a way of life. It is their main source of transportation to and from work, to school, grocery shopping and to other daily activities. Driver’s license suspension or revocation can have a significant effect on all aspects of their life.
But, it is important to remember that driving is a privilege. The courts often suspend driver’s licenses in traffic violations and DWI cases in concern for the safety of others on the road.

Driver’s License Suspension Defense
In North Carolina, the court may suspend a driver’s license for a variety of reasons:
- Accumulating too many points for traffic violations over a three-year period
- Exceeding the speed limit by more than 15 mph
- Refusing a breath test
- Driving while impaired (DWI)
- Racing and reckless driving
- Failure to carry liability insurance
- Other various traffic violations
The length of the suspension period depends on the violation and existence of aggravating factors. For example, a first-time DWI conviction will suspend a license for one year. A second DWI offense within three years of the first offense may result in license suspension for four years. Similarly, the steps one must take to be eligible for license reinstatement differ with each charge.
Our traffic violation and criminal defense lawyers work with prosecutors and DMV officers to minimize the effect of a suspension as much as possible. We assert your interests in DMV hearings. We work to show that you are not a danger to society, and to demonstrate the disruption to your life if you do not have driving privileges. In some cases, we are able to convince the court to give you a limited driving permit that allows you to drive to certain places, such as to work.
If your license was suspended or revoked for any reason, our attorneys work hard to obtain the best possible outcome.

Attorney Frances Knox helped my family in providing much needed legal documents. She was very prompt, knowledgeable and went well out of her way to help us. She provided excellent legal services and was very congenial and easy to work with throughout the process. I highly recommend her as an attorney.
I first met Allen after he was recommended to me by a friend, and I couldn't be happier with the service that he provided. He demonstrated a unique attention to detail in my case, as well as expressed a genuine interest in me as a person. Through a great deal of hard work, Allen was able to appeal my case and get all of my charges dismissed. I couldn't be more grateful for him and his assistant, Sherry, for their legal and personal support during such a difficult time. Hiring Allen was the greatest decision I've ever made, and I would recommend Allen to anyone seeking exceptional legal representation.
Allen is the best lawyer I've ever met! His character is genuine, and there is a warmth about him that makes you feel so comfortable. If you ever get into a situation with DWI, and feel truly remorseful for what happened, HIRE him for the BEST chance possible. I previously spent 6000$ on an attorney who just didn't feel like they really gave me the personal care that I needed. They were only in it for the money. After hearing raving reviews about Allen, I fired my lawyer and took a leap of faith with Allen. Even though I had to pay two separate times and could not get a refund for the previous lawyer, IT WAS WORTH EVERY PENNY!!!! He won my case with dignity, respect, and care and I am forever thankful to him for this.
