Indefinite License Suspension Lifted For Immediate Restoration in Trenton, NJ
A distressed family member reached out to me regarding her mother’s recent license issue with DMV. Unbeknownst to them, her mother’s self-reported issue of “lapses in memory” to her doctor triggered a Scheduled Notice of Suspension because of the doctor’s duty to report such issues. I advised them that while suspension had already begun and was listed as “indefinite”, all hope was not lost. I coordinated for them to visit with a Neurologist, whereby we could establish a defense to DMV’s case that my client was subject to “seizures” and other “loses of impairment”. We analyzed these reports alongside the Neurological Disorder Committee representatives own opinions. Through convincing discourse and evidentiary production of my clients more recent evaluations, I was able to convince DMV to reverse the imposed indefinite suspension in favor of an immediate restoration contingent on bi-annual medical reporting for a period of two years. My client and her family were ecstatic with the news that she would be driving for the holidays.
