I Was Charged with a Traffic Law Offense- Now What?

Published on May 10th, 2021

Traffic violations can be very serious. If you are charged on a severe crime such as driving under the influence or driving on a suspended license, you should not take the situation lightly. Perhaps you were charged with a lighter crime and need assistance with contesting a ticket or decreasing the severity of a traffic offense. Regardless of the traffic crime at hand, it’s helpful to understand why a skilled and experienced attorney can make all the difference in dealing with your offense.

Superior Legal Advice

Regardless of the charge you want to fight, an experienced lawyer will have the right knowledge, terminology and legal tactics to help you win your case. Whether it’s a low or high risk case, traffic law attorneys know the ins and outs of the legal system and how to negotiate for the best possible outcome for you. While you may have certain defense ideas in your head that may not be helpful in a law situation, lawyers will know how to keep the case on track so that everything your side argues is relevant and helpful.

If You Have a lot of Tickets

If you already have a lot of tickets and are at risk of a higher punishment such as a large fine or getting your license suspended, one ticket can make or break your outcome. For that reason, it’s even more important to hire an attorney, as they will very much increase your chances of winning your case, therefore preventing a less favorable outcome.

It Can Save You Time

In some cases of simple offenses such as a speeding ticket, it’s possible for an attorney to go to court for you so you don’t even have to take time out of your day to appear before a judge. If the thought of going to court and defending yourself over a ticket seems too stressful and/or time consuming, hiring an attorney could give you peace of mind.

If You’re a Commercial Truck Driver

If you drive a truck and have a commercial driver’s license (CDL), you are held to much higher standards and rules than other drivers. If you get slapped with a traffic violation, you could potentially get your CDL license taken away. Since the stakes in this situation are much higher than average, if your traffic violation is on behalf of your CDL, it would be much wiser to get an attorney since you’d be much more likely to win your case with one.
