If you or a loved one has been arrested or issued an appearance ticket for driving with a suspended license (VTL 511 - unlicensed operation), then contact the Law Office of Lance Fletcher as soon as possible. Without proper legal representation, you may face a permanent criminal record, probation, excessive fines, and/or additional license suspension.
