What Can A Lawyer Do About A Traffic Ticket?
Have you asked yourself, ” Do I need a lawyer for a traffic matter? ” or, ” How do I get a permanently revoked license back? ” We can help.
A moving violation can be charged as an infraction or a misdemeanor criminal charge. Our Attorneys are prepared to provide defense representation in cases involving the following circumstances or moving violations:
- License revoked/suspended
- CDL traffic tickets
- DMV hearings
- Speeding tickets
- Passing a school bus
- DWI/drunk driving
- Multiple DWI offenses
- And all other traffic charges
- Failure To Appear (FTA) On A Drivers’ License
Frequently, people trying to reinstate their drivers license will take the advice of court clerks, DMV help desk staff or well intentioned friends and just “pay it off.” Doing so then causes suspensions to go into effect, sometimes AFTER a license has been re-instated. Do not just pay off the Failure to Appear. Talk to a lawyer who may get some or all of it dismissed and negotiate a disposition on the rest so it minimizes the impact on your license.
New Speeding Penalties For Minors
Effective for offenses committed on or after January 1, 2012 a new statute provides for a civil revocation of a limited learner’s permit or provisional license of a person under age 18 if the person is charged with a “criminal moving violation” as defined in that statute. An example of this could be speeding more than 15 miles over the limit or in excess of 80 MPH. This new statute appears to require the officer to arrest the young motorist and bring him or her before the magistrate who may immediately revoke his or her privilege.
