Helping You Get Your Driver’s License Back

In Missouri, you do not even have to be convicted of driving while intoxicated to lose your license. If you do not act quickly, you could lose your driving privileges for several months, which could cost you your job and your ability to make a living.

At The Law Office of Gregory N. Smith, I do not only represent drivers in the St. Louis area facing DWI charges; if you are facing a suspended or revoked license, I can represent you in the separate legal process of seeking a restoration of your driving privileges.

Getting Your License Back Is A Complicated Process. Get The Help You Need.

In Missouri, a DWI is actually two cases: the criminal case and administrative proceedings dealing with your license suspension. If your blood alcohol content was allegedly above .08 and the officer had probable cause that you were driving drunk, your license could be suspended for 30 days, followed by 60 days of restricted driving privileges. If you refuse to take a breath or blood test, you could lose your license for one year.

Time is of the essence to get your license back. From the moment police take your license, you have 15 days to file an appeal with the appropriate agency.

Do not try and go through the license restoration process alone. As your lawyer, I can prepare you for any administrative hearings and make sure you are doing everything you need to do to prove that you deserve to get your license back. This may include completing your court-ordered classes, getting additional auto insurance and paying a reinstatement fee.
