Traffic Violations



No matter how careful a person drives a vehicle, at some point he or she will likely commit a traffic violation. Traffic law is the area of law that encompasses all violations related to operating a motor vehicle.

Some of the more common traffic law matters include:

  • Driving While Intoxicated (DWI)
  • Driving While Suspended
  • Driving While Revoked
  • Leaving the Scene of an Accident
  • Red Traffic Light & Stop Sign Violations
  • Driving Without Insurance
  • Speeding Tickets

Most people retain a traffic law attorney to plea bargain on their behalf and have the violation amended to a non-moving violation. However, if you choose to fight a ticket, we will represent you in court and argue on your behalf.

Many people simply choose to have the traffic ticket amended in order to avoid adding points to their driver's license and to avoid increased car insurance rates.

Failure to respond to, or to resolve a traffic violation may result in a warrant being issued for your arrest. That means the next time you get pulled over by a police officer, you could go to jail...even if the only thing you did wrong was fail to use a turn signal or have a headlight out.

If you don't handle a traffic violation properly or if you ignore it, it could catch up with you!
