Should I hire a lawyer if I was caught driving on a suspended license and gave false information?

Asked over 1 year ago - Gainesville, GA

My license was double suspended for marijuana possession when I was young. I filled the requirements on the first suspension and am in the second. I was caught driving to work, I panicked and told the trooper I was my sister, but thought better of it and told him the truth. Can hiring an attorney help me on my court date?

    Answered . If you hired a lawyer on your first case your license would never have need suspended. Apply that lesson to this situation.

    Answered . Yes, a lawyer can advise you as to how to get your license reinstated and then convince a prosecutor to reduce or dismiss your charge. Otherwise, pleading guilty to this charge will get your license suspended an additional 6 months. Please let me know if I can be of assistance; I have handled hundreds of similar cases.
