Legal Question in Traffic Law in California

I was recently cited for a 12500(a) Infraction for driving without a valid license in California. I am on year 2 of 3 for probation for a DUI as well, and 2 days after I applied and got a restricted license at the DMV. What should I do to avoid getting the sentence changed to a misdemeanor and any other help?

The bigger problem is the possibility of a probation revocation of the DUI case. One of the terms of your probation is that you only drive with a valid CA license and insurance. There are some serious consequences possible, and it would be a good idea to consult with a criminal lawyer experienced in DUI matters. Most criminal lawyers give free consultations. If you'd like to speak to me about this, don't hesitate to call. Good luck. Steve Mandell 310 393 0639
