For many people, spending time in jail or paying high fines after being convicted of a driving-related criminal offense is not nearly as bad as losing their driver’s license. A suspension or revocation will severely limit someone from performing necessary daily tasks, as it virtually eliminates their freedom of mobility. In many driving under the influence (DUI) cases, the removal of the driver’s ability to use their own vehicle arguably does not fit the elements of the alleged crime. A restricted driver’s license might be the only way to ease the consequences.

The argument can be made that essentially anyone who has a car, either on lease or fully purchased, needs that vehicle.

At White Law PLLC, we fight diligently to ease the burdens the law imposes and help our clients get a restricted license when no other options are available.
