Allowing a Person Without a Valid License to Operate a Motor Vehicle

Massachusetts License Attorney

Boston RMV Lawyer 

It is now a criminal offense to allow a person without a valid license to operate a motor vehicle without a valid license. This charge usually arises when a friend or family member borrows your car and is either cited, summonsed, or arrested on the charge of operating without a valid driver's license. You may not have had any idea that the person did not carry a valid driver's license, but now you've been dragged into a mess. When contacted by a client immediately, before their first court date, I have been successful at having this charges dropped prior to any formal criminal charges being pressed at all. This has the practical effect of preserving the person's criminal and RMV driving records, and avoiding the penalties that this charge carries; up to $1,000 fine and 1 year in jail. If you've been charged with this offense, DO NOT RELY ON YOUR CO-DEFENDANT'S ATTORNEY TO HELP YOU. If the friend who borrowed your car is also charged with an offense, you have contrasting legal interests! Do not trust an attorney who says that he can handle both of your cases, because one of you will surely be getting the short end of the stick. Contact an attorney who is dedicated to YOUR best interests.

Client Reviews
"Ben Urbelis recently represented me in an OUI case in which I had crashed my car. I honestly did not believe I had any chance of beating it, but fortunately for me Ben was outstanding and all charges were dropped. In my first hearing he was calm, assertive and straight to the point. I was extremely impressed and satisfied. I left my hearing feeling confident that I had made the right choice of hiring him. I am positive I would have lost this case and walked away with an OUI if I hadn't. I am very happy with how he handled my case and how reassured I felt having him as my lawyer." MC
"When I found myself charged with my 3rd DUI I was certain without a doubt that I was facing 6 months to 2 1/2 years in state prison. I can’t believe you were able to guide me calmly through the whole nerve wracking process, never sugar coating anything, staying honest and always keeping me informed the whole time. I still can’t believe that in the end you pulled off a miracle to avoidany jail time. I would recommend you to anyone in the same situation. Thank you so much. You saved me.” JL
