Experienced Attorneys Who Can Protect Your Driving Privileges

Losing your driver’s license can make it nearly impossible to get to work, your children’s school and family functions. However, driving with a suspended license is not a wise choice. It can lead to an even longer period of suspension. It can also lead to permanent license revocation.

If you need to keep your driving privileges after an accusation of driving while your license is under suspension (DWLS), Lombardi & Miler Law Firm PLLC is here for you. Based out of West Des Moines, we are committed to protecting your rights and keeping your license in your hands.

DWLS And Its Consequences In Iowa

The state of Iowa considers it a misdemeanor offense to operate a motor vehicle while your license is suspended, revoked or in any other way barred. Some common reasons for license suspension include driving under the influence (DUI), operating while under the influence (OWI), unpaid fines and repeat traffic violations. The consequences for a first-time DWLS offense can include:

  • A fine of $1,000
  • Court costs of $100
  • Up to one year in jail
  • Time added to your license suspension

The penalties become even more severe for habitual offenders. Enough infractions will lead to the permanent revocation of your driver’s license.

How We Can Help You

In some circumstances, our criminal law attorneys may be able to acquire a temporary restricted license (TRL) for you. Unfortunately, an arrest, charge or conviction for DWLS makes this much more complicated. The most important thing is to seek our legal counsel so we can advise you of your rights and do whatever we can to reinstate your driving privileges. In the meantime, do not try to drive without a valid temporary license.
