Employing a Person with a Suspended License to Operate a Motor Vehicle

Massachusetts Suspended License Lawyer

Boston Criminal Defense Attorney

In Massachusetts, if you are charged with the misdemeanor criminal offense of Employing a Person with a Suspended License to Operate a Motor Vehicle, you face a $500 fine. That might not seem like a serious penalty, and in and of itself, you're right. However, there are lifelong collateral consequences that come with any criminal conviction. It could cost you opportunities with employment, housing, benefits, education, licensing, even coaching your kid's little league team (even a dismissed case, in certain situations, may show up on a background check). It is important that you not take any criminal charge lightly- contact a skilled defense attorney to determine how to proceed. 

A second offense for this charge becomes more serious- the Court is not impressed when you don't learn from your previous mistakes. If charged again, you face up to 1 year in jail and $1,000 fine.

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
