You've Received a Suspension Notice from the Florida Department of Highway Safety & Motor Vehicles

Aggressive Trial Attorney With a Reputation for Success

You've received a suspension notice from the Florida Department of Highway Safety & Motor Vehicles. The notice is advising you that your driver'r license will be suspended on an upcoming date - normally about two weeks from the date you receive the notice.

Do not panic and do not take any action on your own.

The most likely reason you are receiving this notice is because you have recently paid a ticket. You probably went online and started paying off all those unpaid tickets. You thought you were doing the right thing, but in reality, you have convicted yourself of offenses that may make you a Habitual Traffic Offender (HTO)

The other reason for the notice is that perhaps you missed a deadline to either pay a ticket (terrible idea) or set the ticket for trial (much better idea).

Again. Do not panic and do not - under any circumstances - take any action on your own.

These things are fixable. But you need to utilize the services of a professional. Doing things on your own is the likely reason that you find yourself in this situation.

Look. I get it. You want to save money by doing things on your own. But there are some things in life that we should not do unless we possess the very specific technical knowledge to do that thing properly.

If you have received a Florida DHSMV notice of a pending suspension - be it an HTO (Habitual Traffic Offender) suspension or simply a suspension for a single traffic citation - contact me. These things can be fixed.

Prevention is cheaper and easier than a cure. To avoid receiving a Florida DHSMV notice, NEVER EVER pay a traffic ticket online. You will automatically receive points and a conviction on your driving record. And if you have the requisite prior tickets on your record, you could inadvertently make yourself a Habitual Traffic Offender.

If you receive a traffic ticket, contact an attorney. Traffic tickets are not terribly expensive and a skilled professional can make all the difference.
