Driving Defense and Traffic Ticket Attorneys in Florida
People sometimes ask, “Why should I have an attorney for a simple traffic ticket?” Many people don’t realize that these “simple” traffic tickets can actually have serious repercussions if not handled effectively. The most common reason that people hire us is that they don’t have to do anything themselves. Our Gainesville attorney, Travis P. Grant take care of everything for you. We deal with the court on your behalf if possible and do everything we can to minimize points on your driving record because of the ticket.
Keeping Points off Your License
There are many reasons to fight a traffic ticket. One of the most important reasons, however, is to minimize the impact on your driving record. Because our attorneys know what to ask for — including seeking dismissal, a reduction of the charge or a reduced fine — we can successfully advocate on your behalf. We work to eliminate or reduce the effect of the ticket on your license. If you simply pay the fine, you are effectively admitting guilt and accepting the points on your license. Our Gainesville traffic/speeding tickets attorney will work to limit the consequences of a ticket.
Traffic tickets and citations can create many collateral problems if they’re not handled properly. You may think that only unpaid tickets can lead to suspensions of your Florida Driver’s License. However, even by paying off traffic tickets, you may not realize that points can be added to your license, which can lead to insurance increases or even license suspensions. Multiple convictions for Driving With a Suspended or Revoked License or DUI can lead to a Habitual Traffic Offender (HTO) designation and result in a five-year driver’s license suspension.
Our Gainesville attorney has several strategies to attack and defend these citations and suspensions. They may be able to help you avoid or remove suspensions, even if you are classified as a Habitual Traffic Offender. They are familiar with the changes in the law that affect your license and are prepared to work with you to protect your driving privilege.
We help people with a variety of traffic tickets, including:
- Driving while license suspended or revoked (DWLS/R)
- No valid driver’s license
- Careless driving
- Reckless driving
- Habitual Traffic Offender
- Driving Under the Influence (DUI)
- Leaving the scene of an accident
- Leaving the scene of an accident with property damage or injuries
We also help clients with commercial driver’s licenses (CDLs). The loss of a CDL can affect your livelihood and your job prospects. We can help you protect your license and your future.
Investigating to Develop a Strong Defense
We thoroughly investigate each traffic ticket we handle to ensure that the police who wrote the traffic ticket cited the correct law. We also need to make sure that law enforcement personnel behaved properly when they issued the ticket. A strong defense is important because a traffic ticket is much more than just an inconvenience. It can mean increased insurance premiums and the eventual loss of your license if you accumulate too many tickets. It is to your advantage to try to keep these points off your license. A knowledgeable attorney can help you do just that.
