What Is An Occupational License?
If you are in legal trouble that resulted in a license suspension or revocation and are struggling with an inability to maintain employment, you need effective legal representation.

An occupational license might be an option if you lost your driving privileges due to the following:
- DUI/DWI arrest
- Drug charges
- Failure to pay mandatory surcharges

An occupational license is a restricted license that enables you to travel for specific reasons, such as work or school. In order to secure an occupational license, you must get a court order to authorize the issuance of the license. The process can be complex, but The Law Office of Michael J. Crawford can help determine if you qualify for this option and guide you through the process.
