Suspended Driver’s License?

The motor vehicle laws of Indiana provide a wide array of penalties that may affect your driver’s license. If your license is suspended for any reason, the mere act of driving can lead to serious consequences. Indiana policies give drivers a number of options to get their license back. The reinstatement process doesn’t have to be complicated, but it is often best to trust a skilled attorney to build and present the correct case and to fight on your behalf.

Black Clay LLC offers comprehensive legal services to help you clean up your driving record and get you back on the road. In addition to offering criminal defense services, we will review your driving record and determine the best legal remedy available for your specific needs.

Under certain circumstances, Indiana drivers with a suspended license may obtain a restricted driver’s license. A restricted driver’s license, or a hardship license, permits a person to drive but only during pre-determined restrictions imposed by the court (e.g. commuting to and from work or school, or church).

Eligibility for a restricted license depends upon the original reason for suspension. A strong and compelling case often must be presented to the court, demonstrating sound reasons why a hardship license is needed. NEVER drive with a suspended license. Speak with the experienced criminal defense attorneys at Black Clay today to get back on the road legally and as soon as possible.

Do You Have a Past Arrest, Charge or Conviction to Expunge?

Many people and organizations, including future employers, may access your criminal history to see if you’ve been arrested, charged, or convicted of a crime. In fact, most employers require you to reveal your criminal history on the job application itself. However, a past arrest or conviction does not need to ruin your future.

Under Indiana’s new expungement law, many people with past convictions or arrests are now eligible for relief, including limitations on who may access your information, and the right not to disclose past arrests or convictions that have been expunged. There are a variety of requirements to be eligible for expungement relief – we encourage you to set up a free consultation with an expungement lawyer by visiting our contact page or calling (317) 580-9007.

In addition to criminal defense situations, call the professionals at Black Clay LLC when you need a local divorce attorney, injury lawyer, estate attorney and business lawyer. Contact our Indianapolis law firm today to learn more and schedule a consultation.
