Maryland MVA Hearings Lawyer
Until faced with driver’s license suspension or revocation, we often forget that driving is actually a privilege and not a right. The Maryland Motor Vehicle Association (MVA) can suspend or revoke a driver’s license — including a commercial driver’s license (CDL) — for many different reasons. However, you have the right to fight back against license suspension or driver’s license revocation — and it is almost always worth it.
Our Maryland MVA hearing lawyers have many years of experience as a prosecuting attorney, which gives me special insight now in my work as a criminal defense lawyer. Contact our Bowie Maryland DWI defense lawyers today to schedule a private and complimentary consultation regarding a Maryland MVA hearing related to DUI, DWI or another traffic crime.

Driver’s license suspension will put a black mark on your motor vehicle record and may result in increased car insurance rates. If you are a commercial driver with a CDL, the impact of suspension on your livelihood cannot be overestimated.
The Maryland Motor Vehicle Administration has the authority to suspend or revoke a driver’s license in a number of situations:
- DUI, DWI, impaired driving or drugged driving
- Too many traffic points on your license (8 or higher)
- Vehicular assault, vehicular homicide or vehicular manslaughter
If you want to fight the suspension, you must request a hearing within 15 days of the suspension notice. The suspension hearings have two primary purposes. The first and most important is to help you keep your license until the criminal case against you is resolved. The second purpose is to give your criminal defense attorney an early look at some of the evidence against you, which allows your lawyer to build a stronger defense on your behalf.
