Why didn't I know My License Was Suspended?

I come into contact with many people who were pulled over for speeding and when the officer came back he gave them a ticket for Driving Under Suspension.  Generally, if your license has been suspended by the DMV, they will send a notice to your last known addressed -that you provided to the DMV.  This address could have been an address you used several years ago; but have moved may times and failed to update your address with the DMV.  Understand that it is your obligation keep your address updated with the DMV.

A great experience from the beginning, Ike focused only on what was needed to make a successful case, very responsive and ensured we understood each step of the process.

Corey

Professional and knowledgeable attorney!  I received an out of state speeding ticket leading to a misdemeanor charge. Attorney Lucero represented me in court and kept me informed during the process. He was honest and his one time fee was reasonable,  compared to other attorneys I spoke to. My misdemeanor was dropped to a traffic infraction. Happy with results,  and sure learned my lesson.

 Professional and knowledgeable are the two characteristics you want most from an attorney and Ike is very much both.

He made the whole process as painless as possible, letting me know what would happen at each stage of the process and answering my emailed questions very quickly, often within minutes. His very reasonable rates were an added bonus.

I highly recommend Mr. Lucero if you are in need of his services.

I have never received a ticket until I moved to Denver. I got caught in one of Denver’s speed traps. It was a Sunday afternoon when I got caught and emailed Ike Lucero. For my surprise he emailed me back within an hour.  He was very professional and knowledgable. I hope I don’t need to use him ever again but if I have to I wouldn’t hesitate to contact him

ALINE

I had an excellent experience with Ike Lucero. He handled a speeding ticket that I received while visiting Colorado, and negotiated a very favorable plea bargain for me. I couldn’t be happier with the results.

Throughout the whole process, Ike was responsive and willing to answer all of my questions regarding my options and the steps I needed to take. I would recommend him to anyone and wouldn’t hesitate to use him again.
