Traffic Ticket Defense
It happens, you’re jamming out to your favorite song or you get lost in conversation with a friend, and you stop paying attention to how far down you’re pressing the gas pedal.
When you’re given a speeding ticket you aren’t just facing fines, you could also receive points on your license which could make your insurance rates go way up. Whether if you were going 15 mph over the speed limit or 30 mph over, contact us to make sure you get fair representation and your situation is handled correctly.
There are a number of ways a speeding ticket can be resolved:
- Dismissal by the district attorney
- Reduction of the charge to 9 mph over the speed limit or to improper equipment
- Pleading guilty or responsible and requesting a Prayer for Judgment (PJC)
- Pleading not guilty and taking the case to trial
Driving with a Revoked License
If you’ve been charged with driving with a revoked license, the consequences can continue to get worse and eventually could lead a permanent revocation of your driver’s license or to jail time.
We will not only do our best to minimize the consequences of the charge in court but also look at your driving record to see what you need to do to get your license back. In our experience, prosecutors are hoping that individuals can have their driving privileges restored and will work with people to help this happen.
Make sure you get ahead of this by letting our team work on your case.
Many reckless driving charges are related to high speeding cases or to accidents.
A reckless driving charge is a serious charge that carries serious insurance consequences and can be a dark spot on an otherwise good driving record. Despite the seriousness of the charge, it is common for our attorneys to successfully request a reduction or dismissal of a reckless driving.
There may be things you can do before we speak with the district attorney such as obtaining documentation from your insurance company or attending a Driver Safety course that would help us in our negotiations with the prosecutor.
