When a client received a license suspension notice in the mail after pleading guilty to driving with a suspended registration, he immediately called criminal defense attorney Michael Fienman. Fienman quickly took legal action within the notice’s 30-day window and filed an appeal at the Court of Common Pleas. Since Fienman also got a stay of suspension from PennDOT, the client’s license was never suspended while the appeal was pending.
Fienman got his client’s conviction reduced to a zero-point non-moving violation and successfully appealed the notice. This meant no license suspension or points on the client’s driving record.
The outcome of an individual case depends on a variety of factors unique to that case. Case results do not guarantee or predict a similar result in any similar or future case.
