“Because of a long history of breaking the law I was suspended for 19 years. I spoke with Steve and after he looked at my driver’s record he wrote a letter to PennDot challenging every offense listed. A month later he called to let me know that PennDot made mistakes and I should have my license back in August! After that I got a great job in Wilmington because I could drive again.” – Jim
