Q: I got pulled over and was told my license was suspended but I did not know it was suspended.
License was suspended for failure to appear in court/ paying off a ticket however I did pay the ticket but it was late. I was told to appear in court for driving with a suspended license. What are the next steps
A: Your next step should be to hire a good lawyer. Your not required to be given notice for a judge ordered suspension which is what you had. That being said a good lawyer should still be able to help you reduce or eliminate the penalties you face or if your lucky get the case dismissed. Most of lawyers offer a free in office consultation, I would suggest that you set one up.
