Attorney at Law

Car Forfeiture


The 2000 legislature has passed a bill which calls for mandatory car registration revocation for a 2nd and subsequent Alcohol Contact (civil or criminal convictions).  This was signed by the governor and went into effect on October 1, 2000. 

If you fit into this category, the police will remove your license plates at the time of arrest, and should issue a temporary, license plate at the same time.  Unless you contest the matter, you will automatically lose your license and registration for at least one year.  There is a process to transfer the car to someone else if the transfer meets certain criteria.

Mr. Burge has represented numerous people in this situation since the new law went into effect.  Please contact the office for an appointment if you are looking for help in this matter.
