Driving While License Suspended
Don't Plead Guilty! Here's Why:

Pleading 'no contest' or 'guilty' to a Suspended or Invalid License ticket will result in another driver's license suspension -- up to two years.


Aside from that Driver's License Suspension, Texas DPS will charge you a $100 Resinstatement Fee. Plus, you'll have Fines ($500-$2,000) and Court Costs. It's cheaper to actually hire an attorney to fight your case and seek a Dismissal.



We focus on Dismissal.

If Dismissed, you avoid suspensions and DPS Fees.

We go to Court for You.

We take care of Court, so you can

"If you are looking for a great affordable attorney I highly recommend Mr. Keates. He helped me get my occupational license in a week!! After calling many different lawyers all of them told me it would take two weeks to get my license and they wanted to charge me double the price that Mr. Keates was charging me! Mr. Keates answered all my questions and responded to all my calls and emails very quickly!
