Eastern Iowa License Revocation Lawyers
Serving Cedar Rapids, Davenport & all of Eastern Iowa
Many people pay fines for traffic citations and think, "it's only a ticket." They do not know that three moving violations in a year triggers a suspension of driving privileges or that a speeding ticket over 24 mph above the speed limit leads to an automatic license suspension. If you face license revocation or suspension, our attorneys at Keegan, Tindal & Mason can help you defend against your traffic violation charges and find a solution to keep you on the road whenever possible.
Finding Solutions to Keep You on the Road
Our license revocation attorneys handle serious traffic violation cases that involve drunk driving, license suspension, and license revocation. We understand that it is cost-prohibitive to hire a lawyer for a first speeding ticket, parking ticket, or other small traffic offense. We will not convince someone with a small traffic offense to hire a lawyer. We step in when your future is at stake.
Among the cases we have successfully handled are:
- Operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated or driving while intoxicated (OWI/DWI)

Minimizing Consequences for CDL Holders
When you are charged with an OWI/DUI, you can lose your commercial driver's license (CDL) even if you are not operating a commercial vehicle when you receive your violation. Like most CDL holders, your license is probably your livelihood. Seek legal advice as soon as possible to defend your rights and your future.
Appealing Driver's License Sanctions
If you have received a notice in the mail from the Department of Transportation that tells you when your license suspension begins, contact us immediately. We may be able to appeal that suspension and keep your driving privileges intact through the license suspension appeals process.
License Restoration & Work Permits
If your license has been suspended, we can find out if you are eligible for a temporary restricted license or reinstatement, or tell you what you need to do to make yourself eligible. We are prepared to help you take the necessary steps to get back on the road.
