Traffic Law

Traffic Related Offenses

Most people do not realize that many traffic citations are actually CRIMINAL OFFENSES. What may appear to be a simple speeding ticket, or accident citation, might actually affect your criminal record. No matter what you are charged with, there is a high probability that we can minimize the impact upon your livelihood.

We recognize that there are times when you may dispute the facts behind a traffic violation charged by law enforcement. Furthermore, we understand that in many situations, the allegation of a traffic offense may simply be a difference of opinion between the person charged and the citing officer. In these situations, we objectively look at the evidence and create a realistic plan to dispose of the matter in a way that will minimize the financial impact upon our clients.

For example, if you were charged with speeding, we will work to ensure that you will not receive insurance or driver’s license points. Afterall, a relatively minor speeding charge can increase your insurance premiums by a minimum of 30% over the next three years. That means, if your insurance rate is $200.00/mo, a 30% increase will cost you an additional $60.00 per month. After 36 months, you will have paid out an additional $2,160.00. Based on the speed, we can generate at least a $2,010.00 savings over three years!

The point of the matter is that you are typically money ahead by having us represent you in any traffic related offense. The money you spend on the front end will almost always outweigh the impact over trying to handle the case yourself. If you retain our firm on a traffic violation, we can almost guarantee that you will never have to appear in court, you will not have to come to our office, and everything can be handled over the phone or through email. This will save you time and the aggravation of having to appear in court, stand in line, and spending an entire day waiting for your case to be disposed in a manner that is not necessarily beneficial to your financial situation or your criminal record.
