HOW CAN I FIGHT A CHARGE OF NO VALID DRIVER’S LICENSE?
When facing a charge of No Valid Driver’s License in Florida, it’s crucial to understand the potential defenses available to you. At Leppard Law, we have the expertise and experience to fight for a reduction or dismissal of the charges against you.
Two effective defenses we can employ are motion to suppress and alibi defense.
Motion to Suppress: This defense strategy challenges the validity of the evidence presented against you. If evidence was obtained illegally or in violation of your constitutional rights, we can file a motion to suppress that evidence. This can weaken the prosecution’s case and even lead to a dismissal of the charges.
Alibi Defense: An alibi defense involves proving that you were not present at the scene of the alleged offense when it occurred. This can be supported by providing evidence such as witnesses, surveillance footage, or documentation that places you elsewhere at the time of the incident.
In addition to these defenses, there may be other viable strategies based on the specific circumstances of your case. We thoroughly analyze the evidence, witness statements, and all available information to craft a strong defense tailored to your situation.
