Traffic Violations Can Have Serious Consequences
No matter how much penalties increase or how much policymakers and law enforcement agencies want to make an example out of traffic offenders, the perception remains that traffic violations are minor issues. Traffic-related offenses are more than a nuisance; they can have a dramatic impact on your life.

Defending Against Driving Under Suspension Charges
An arrest for driving under the influence (DUI) is often only the beginning of someone’s problems. For example, people who need their driver’s license to make a living — such as plumbers, contractors and couriers — will take the risk of driving with a suspended license in order to continue working. When caught, they may have their license revoked in addition to other penalties.
Depending on the specifics of a case, there could be mandatory jail time. If someone is deemed to be a habitual traffic offender (HTO), the person could lose his or her license for five years and go to jail.
Our lawyers can help you identify your defense options and will work diligently to obtain the best possible outcome for you. We strive for a resolution to the case that protects your record and limits your exposure to collateral consequences such as the loss of your professional license.
