S & R Law Firm
Traffic Ticket Defense
If you’ve gotten a traffic ticket recently, you may have blown it off, paid the fine, and moved on with your life. If you have a good driving record, have not had many tickets, and can afford to do so, this isn’t necessarily a bad decision. But it is sometimes important to remember that paying a fine is the same as pleading guilty. In cases where you have many points against your driver’s license, where you have received many prior traffic tickets, or where you are also facing Reckless Driving charges, pleading guilty by paying a fine isn’t always the best choice. Sometimes the best thing you can do if you’re having trouble with traffic tickets is to work with a Fairfax traffic ticket lawyer. The team at S&R Law Firm has experience successfully helping many clients beat traffic tickets over the year, reduce points against their license, and achieving overall better outcomes for their cases.Why Fight Traffic Tickets?
Many people cannot imagine taking the time to fight a traffic ticket, but in some cases fines, court costs, and other difficulties associated with traffic tickets are incredibly costly. In addition, if your traffic ticket results in the loss of your driver’s license, it can make getting to work difficult if not impossible, putting your livelihood in jeopardy. In many cases, these factors alone may justify the expense of a traffic ticket attorney.
In addition, any traffic ticket will result in points added to your license. Even the lowest-level speeding ticket takes years to disappear from your DMV record, which can significantly raise your insurance rates and increase your chances of having your license suspended. In some cases, a single specific violation can result in immediate suspension, and in this case hiring a traffic attorney in Fairfax may be in your best interest. This is especially true if you are like most of us and require a vehicle to get to work. In addition, if you drive as part of your job, points against your driver’s license will force your company to pay more for your insurance, and can potentially result in your termination.
Finally, if you are charged with something more serious like Reckless Driving or driving with a suspended license, this should not be taken lightly. These are class 1 misdemeanor charges, which means you can be punished with significant jail time, huge fines, and the loss of your license. Without a lawyer by your side, it will be difficult to defend yourself against these serious charges.
In any of these cases, a Fairfax traffic ticket lawyer can be incredibly useful.
