When you receive a traffic citation, you need to understand the consequences of your offense, especially if you face potentially serious penalties. For more than four decades, the Law Offices Of Harry A. Suissa, P.C., has helped clients deal with traffic violations.
Types Of Traffic Violations
All traffic violations are not equal. Traffic infractions are minor offenses that generally involve paying a fine and accumulating points against your driving record. In addition to fines, a misdemeanor is punishable by increased driving points, loss of license and jail time.
The most serious traffic violations are charged as felonies, which can mean years in prison or time spent on probation, increased driving points and driving restrictions. Failing to pay fines and repeated violations, even if relatively minor, can result in a suspended or revoked driver’s license.
Client Representation In Traffic Cases
Seeking legal advice or representation can help you avoid serious traffic violation consequences later down the road. Or if you have already arrived at the point where you face serious consequences, effective legal representation may help reduce charges, avoid jail or allow you to keep your license.
Our firm will provide legal representation to all types of traffic violation, including, but not limited to, the following:
- Vehicular manslaughter
- Leaving the scene of an accident
- Driving without insurance
- Driving with a suspended/revoked license
- Driving without a license
- Reckless driving
We represent clients living in Maryland and Washington, D.C., as well as out-of-state drivers. License suspension and revocation are subject to different laws in each state.
However, many drivers do not understand the citation they receive, and consequently may shove the ticket in the glove box and neglect to pay it. When traffic tickets stack up and are not paid, you can face a bench warrant for arrest and other penalties. We can help with these issues.
With more than 40 years of experience representing individuals with various traffic violations, our lawyer can assist you in Maryland and the Washington, D.C., area with resolving your legal difficulties today. Call our Silver Spring office at 301-960-5458 or use our online contact form.
