Salesman’s DUS Charge Appealed Successfully
A man in his mid-30s was recently charged with two counts of driving under a suspended license in Lawrence County. Driving under suspension is a summary offense in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. He hired Pittsburgh traffic lawyers Mike Worgul and Samir Sarna to handle his case.
Our client was charged with speeding in Ohio and forgot about the citation. As a result, Ohio convicted him and his license was suspended in Pennsylvania for failure to appear in court. He was driving on the highway one day and unfortunately was pulled over in two different jurisdictions for the same offense.
As a salesman who depends on his license to get to work, he was concerned about what this would do to his employment. We took immediate action to have his license reinstated as fast as possible. Pittsburgh defense attorney Mike Worgul represented him in two separate court dates in Lawrence County Court of Common Pleas. We were able to appeal the client’s convictions, and achieved a stay of his license suspension. At the appeal hearing, Mike successfully achieved a reduction in charges. Our client received no demerit points on his license and no further driver’s license suspension.
