Hello.

The judge probably isn't going to look very kindly on your being pulled over three times for being revoked, so your best bet at this point is to hire an attorney who specializes in traffic matters (or retain the public defenders office if you can't afford an attorney). Driving while revoked carries up to a year in jail and/or a $1000 fine, so you want someone who is knowledgeable about that law in court for you. The best thing you can do at this point is that if you can take steps to try to get your license reinstated to show the court you are serious about cleaning up your license and your record. This will go over better with the court than you just showing up and asking for mercy.

Hope this helps.

u want to say, if i go to the court without lawyer, i can go to the jail for 1 year, ??? and what do u think how much i have to pay to the lawyer for my case
Expert:  Hammer O'Justice replied 8 years ago.
<p>No, sorry, what I was saying is that you can get UP to one year...that is the maximum...not that you will get one year. I am saying that because of your record the judge may not be willing to cut you a break and get you no jail time. But having an attorney and trying to get your license reinstated will help.</p><p> </p><p>I don't know how much an attorney will charge for a case like this. You should look in the Yellow Pages and call around to get the best rate. Be sure to look for someone who charges a flat fee rather than an a hourly rate. For a case like this, you shouldn't get roped into paying someone by the hour when you can just pay a flat fee to get it resolved.</p>
