Working To Get A Stay On License Revocation Actions

Attorney Terence D. Broughton will contact the DMV and request a hearing on your behalf. This will cause a stay (a hold) to be placed on the automatic suspension generally set to take effect 30 days after your arrest. In order to have the stay imposed you must contact Mr. Broughton immediately (within 10 days of your arrest) so that he may make a timely request for a hearing to challenge the suspension and obtain a stay. Many attorneys are unfamiliar with DMV hearings and don’t or won’t handle these hearings.

After the hearing, the DMV will either reimpose the suspension or set the suspension aside. Even under the worst outcome, Mr. Broughton under most circumstances can get your right to drive restored, usually without any suspension time, allowing you to work, raise your family and carry on with your life.
