Experienced & Effective Traffic Offense Attorneys Serving Hampton Roads
Most people receive a traffic ticket at some point in time. It may be for speeding, running a red light or stop sign, or missing an inspection. Sometimes the ticket is more serious, it could be for Driving While Under the Influence of alcohol, driving on a suspended license, reckless driving or even a hit and run. If you have been issued a summons or arrested for any traffic offenses, you need to have an experienced attorney standing next to you in the courtroom.
An attorney will review your record, cross examine the police officer and make an argument to have your ticket dismissed or reduced. In many cases a police officer will not fill out the paperwork correctly, testify incorrectly or not have the right documents with him to completely prove his case. When this happens, an attorney can point this out to the Judge and your charges will be reduced or dismissed.
Even a less serious traffic offense can cause negative points to be added to your drivers license and cause your insurance rates to go up. Having a moving violation reduced can reduce or eliminate negative points on your license and save you from insurance premium rate increases.
Of course, more serious driving infractions can be considered misdemeanors or in some cases even felonies. When you are facing a serious traffic offense you could be looking at jail time and large fines. If convicted of a serious traffic violation you may lose your license or even your job
