Q:     How to get my license back earlier?  I live in Florida and have a court date arriving for possession of marijuana; under 20 grams (misdemeanor) and possession of controlled IV substance (misdemeanor). I’m guessing my license is going to be suspended and I’m wondering if there is anyway I can get it back early? I really don’t want to have to wait years to get it back is there any courses I can take as well as paying some kind of fine to get it back instead of having to wait so long?
A:     Chosen as “Best Answer” by Asker on www.AVVO.com
Answered .  If you get convicted of misdemeanor marijuana possession in FL then you must suffer a mandatory one (1) year DL suspension.  If this happens, and if you are otherwise eligible, then you can petition DMV for a hardship driver license aat the half way point (i.e. after six (6) months pass).  That said, the best way to avoid the DL suspension is NOT (caps intentional) to eat a conviction.

Do you have a lawyer?  If not then you should, and if you do then it’s time to get to work…

Before you break out the shovel and dig your grave consider that you may enjoy viable defenses to the charges, affirmative or otherwise, or there may be factual, legal, procedural or substantive mechanisms by which to attack and beat the charges in your unique case, I do not know and the forum to find out is NOT on line; rather it is in the sanctity of attorney’s offices, where your statements are privileged and cannot be used against you.

The best way for you to get competent advise is going to be to consult with an experienced and local criminal defense lawyer who can follow-up on your information with questions of her/his own, as well as review the police reports and whatever evidence that you may provide and then offer an informed opinion.

My advise: Get offline and into a skilled and experienced Port Orange area criminal defense lawyer’s office. Use the “Find a Lawyer” feature on AVVO to locate proximate lawyers, make an appointment, show up on time, bring whatever evidence, documents or witnesses that you may have, engage in a meaningful face-to-face consultation and get yourself some advise which is legally sound and has been custom tailored as possible to meet your specific reasonable needs in your unique case.

I hope that I have been helpful in answering your question.
