We are thrilled to announce that on June 26, 2018, the Division of Insurance Board of Appeals voted to grant our client a Hardship License between 7:00 A.M. and 7:00 P.M.

At the time of our hearing, our client who resides on Cape Cod had served 2,028 days of his thirteen (13) year license suspension. In addition to working fulltime for a masonry company, our client was attending school to update his Maritime Captains License. On Cape Cod public transportation is not reliable. Moreover, as a mason, such transportation is not a reasonable option. In addition to needing a license for work and school, our clients mother at the time of the hearing had been diagnosed with breast cancer and needed her son to drive her to her daily treatments.

Prior to the hearing our client completed several substance abuse related programs while serving a 2.5 year jail sentence. Following his release from the Barnstable County House of Correction, our client has maintained his sobriety. He attends Alcoholics Anonymous three times per work, has a sponsor and has weekly therapy sessions with the Outer Cape Therapy Service. The great strides our client has made were recognized by the Board of Appeals with a decision in his favor.

The Hardship License will allow our client to get to and from work everyday without having to rely on expensive Uber costs. Most importantly, it will help him drive his mother to and from her daily medical appointments. We are thrilled the Board of Appeals recognized the significant steps our client has taken and voted to help him!
