    Driver's License Suspension

    Bill hadn’t had a license in over 20 years. Because he had lived and travelled in so many states, he wasn’t sure which state suspended his license or where he had open cases. When he called us, we explained that it would be a tough task, but if he was patient, we could get it done. We researched his suspension for over a week. We found that he had open cases in a number of states throughout the southeast. Most of those cases only required him to pay old fines. He brought us the funds to pay the fines, and we handled the payments and paperwork for him. We got the necessary clearances from each court. We went to court on his outstanding warrants and cases in Alabama, particularly the many Driving While Suspended cases, because each of those could have led to an additional 6-month suspension. Over the course of several months we were able to resolve EVERY ONE of his cases, without a single additional suspension.
