Philadelphia Man Avoids License Suspension With Traffic Appeal

Oct 27 2016, by Michael Fienman in Case Results, Criminal Defense, Traffic Defense

Not long ago, Philadelphia’s Fienman Defense was called upon to help a man when someone else’s alleged actions left him in a very precarious legal position. Apparently, a man was pulled over for a moving violation, but when questioned, he provided the authorities with another individual’s name and information. Unfortunately, this resulted in this unsuspecting person being issued citations for the original moving violation and driving with a suspended driver license. The man only became aware of theses infractions when a notice from PennDOT notified him that his license would be suspended for an additional year. While the man claimed that he had been the victim of identity theft, he knew that he’d need a highly skilled legal professional to navigate the process, so he contacted attorney Michael Fienman.

Attorney Fienman reviewed all the aspects of this case and facilitated the man’s appeal in Philadelphia traffic court. With his extensive knowledge of Pennsylvania’s traffic law and court procedure, attorney Fienman negotiated with the prosecution and secured a plea bargain that involved paying a simple fine. The client was nervous about explaining the details of his stolen identity to the judge who may not decide the case in his favor. Ultimately, this result provided the man with a way to protect himself without unnecessary risk and he was relieved to be spared an additional year of license suspension.

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.
