Convicted? How To Reverse It

Post Conviction Relief (PCR)

You can also do PCR for convictions from other motor vehicle violations. For example, I have some clients who want to reduce points in their driving history. I look at their driving history and examine which municipal court we should apply for PCR. We request a PCR, and if granted, we go back and try the case. My client’s points can be reduced which may avoid license suspension or result in lowering the premium for automobile insurance. If the client is facing jail time due to his prior conviction of no automobile liability insurance, I might advise my client to apply for a PCR. This way, if PCR is granted and we can win the first charge, his exposure will be as a first offender on the current charge. There are many tactical reasons to do PCR on your prior motor vehicle convictions.
