Speeding? Running a red light? Diving with a suspended license? You have options. With the right criminal defense attorney, you don’t necessarily have to accept the fine, the increased insurance or the revoked driving privileges. The ticket you have just received might have been inevitable, but the extreme consequences don’t have to be.
First, it is important to understand the significant difference between minor traffic offenses and serious traffic offenses. If you are charged with a serious traffic offense, you face potential jail time and license suspension. Additionally, you will be required to appear in court. Serious traffic offenses include: DUI, reckless driving, driving with a suspended license, driving without insurance and hit-and-run situations. Galanter Law firm will work to help achieve a favorable outcome given your particular circumstances.
Losing your license can have serious effects on your personal and professional lives. Fortunately, you have the right to contest a traffic ticket. If you are issued a citation, you have the right to contest it before a magisterial district judge. The ramifications of pleading guilty or being found guilty can and will jeopardize your operating privileges. You will need an experienced criminal defense attorney to help stand up for you in the legal process, obtain the best results possible for you and minimize the impact of the criminal charge on your life.
So what should you do after being given a traffic ticket? A good course of action, for starters, is to be polite and cooperative with the police officer who issues the traffic ticket. But bear in mind that any statement you give to the officer can be used against you in the court of law. “Talking your way out of it” might cause more harm than help, so it’s advised that you contact a criminal defense attorney right away. As soon as possible, write notes about the circumstances that led up to the issuance of the traffic ticket while the events are still fresh in your head. Include all details possible, including the time, weather, exact location, what the officer said to you and what you said to the officer.
Still uncertain as to why you need to hire an experienced Miami Traffic Ticket Attorney for a traffic violation? If you’re like most people, you are likely not familiar with the language and routines involved in traffic court proceedings.
