A suspended driver’s license is a result of multiple traffic tickets, or a conviction of a crime such as intoxicated or reckless driving. Unfortunately, a suspended driver license is a major inconvenience as it is often impractical to give up driving due to the requirements of daily activities. For this reason, it is not uncommon for individuals who have had their license suspended to continue to drive. This practice is highly illegal and, if discovered, can result in serious fines and jail time.
Instead of driving on a suspended license, it is important to be proactive in dealing with your legal problems and do everything possible to avoid a license suspension, or get your license back as quickly as possible. In many cases, you may be able to apply for a hardship license, or you may be able to resolve the underlying issues that led to your suspension. At Bloom Legal, we can help you evaluate your situation and explore options for getting your license back so you can drive legally again.

Ticket Consequences in Other States
It is very common for individuals who move out of the state they are living in to have outstanding traffic violations and/or tickets that they are not aware of. These “unknown” tickets can and will cause your Louisiana driver license to be suspended. This makes it impossible for you to file for a license renewal or obtain a new (out-of-state) license without returning to Louisiana to address your violations. You will be required to resolve your outstanding tickets regardless of the amount of time you have been living out-of-state.
This situation is something we encounter frequently at Bloom Legal and our lawyers have assisted a large number of clients resolve this problem and restore their right to drive in their new state.

Hear What Our Clients Have To Say
"I contacted Bloom Legal out of the blue with a strange question for a fiction series I’m writing that takes place in New Orleans. Being from Maryland I was in the dark and needed assistance and they jumped at the chance to help me (they were the only law firm that responded to my e-mail). His team worked quickly and carefully to find the information I needed. Because of the help they provided it changed a large aspect of my novel and for that I am very grateful."
