Palm Bay, FL asked in Car Accidents for Florida

Q: I was in a car accident 4 years ago and they ruled in immediate threat with license revoked indefinitely. no record.

I had an rmv hearing earlier this year and they told me to file with the board of appeals and wondered why I waited so long. However, they werent sure how I am to go about it since the accident was in massachusetts, and I moved to florida. If i get an attorney, do I act as if I live in Mass and hire an attorney there and proceed and fly out to any hearing? Or do I get a florida attorney? Unrelated, the RMV hearing lady sent me a letter stating I can submit this letter and a physicians statement to the rmv and they may be able to reinstate it that way. They said it didnt matter if i was in florida or not; On the letter it says it has to be signed by a massachusetts physician though. So im thinking board of appeals would be a more clear cut decision.

A: As I understand it, your license was revoked in Massachusetts. Yes, if you hire an attorney, you will need one license to practice law in Massachusetts.
