Fort Wayne License Suspension Lawyers
It is not even possible to list all of the ways that a person can end up with a suspended license in the state of Indiana. A person can end up with a license suspension for criminal matters both felony and misdemeanor (such as drinking and driving), for infractions (tickets), and even as the result of a law suit! In fact, those suspensions can be ordered by a court, or by the Bureau of Motor Vehicles (BMV). Below is a sample of common types of license suspension, but remember, there are many more.
