Customer Question
I was told by my...
I was told by my Neurologist, (for Epilepsy) Dr. Allen Spiegel, that my Florida license was officially 'restricted', and did not mention the word 'suspended'. I was leaving Publix grocery store on early Saturday afternoon and slightly bumped into the rear bumper of the ladies car in front of me. I was not written a ticket for damage, period. The officer told me my license was, in fact, suspended. He still let me drive home and said he would not write me a ticket. Do I stand a chance at my court date on 3/09/16 in Pinellas Park?

Hi,

I'm Lucy, and I'd be happy to answer your questions today. I'm sorry to hear that this happened.

Did your doctor explain what he meant by restricted? Did you ever receive anything from the DMV about the status of your license? Is the address you have on file with the DMV correct?

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

TonyApopka, FL

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
