Traffic Violations

Speeding Tickets and Traffic Violations Attorney 

Most people know that Traffic Violations carry a fine for offenses such as Speeding, Running a Stop Light or Stop Sign, Expired Inspection Sticker but there are also more serious offenses such as Driving Without a License DUI Related which carries an automatic 90 days in jail. Whatever traffic violations you find yourself facing, I can help. Traffic Violations don't only carry the expensive fines and costs, they can also carry points on your driver's license and sometimes suspensions of your driver's license. If you don't know what your facing it can be disastrous, and the police don't have to tell you!

For example, if you are cited for Careless Driving, you would get assessed a fine and costs and you will get 3 points on your license. Once you get 6 or more points on your license, you have to attend PennDot's safe driving school or lose your license. If you get 11 or more points, your license will be taken away! If instead you were cited with Reckless Driving, you would get assessed a fine and costs and no points on your license. At this point you might think the officer was helping you out. However, a few weeks later you would get a notice from PennDot telling you that your license was going to be suspended for 3 months!

Points on your license can raise your insurance, getting caught driving while your license is suspended will cause it to be suspended even longer, or it might mean you have to go to jail! Traffic violations are serious and can cost you a lot of money in the long run. When you take an experienced attorney with you to traffic court, you have the best chance possible to work your case out to avoid costly points, fines, and suspensions. I've been handling traffic cases for over 21 years, call my office today for a free evaluation of your case!

Call me right away, if your case is less than 30 days old we can file an appeal from your conviction and/or you PennDot license suspension and try to handle it right. Call my office today, maybe it's no too late, we may still be able to save you the costs, fines, points, and suspensions if we act quickly!
