Traffic Violations

Some people never consider hiring an attorney for a "simple” or "mere” traffic ticket. However, penalties for traffic violations can often be harsh. Paying a ticket equates to pleading guilty to that offense, and leads to a mark against your license and possibly, depending on the traffic infraction, a criminal record. Moreover, pleading guilty can effect your insurance premiums. In fact, depending on the type of offense and your prior motor vehicle history, automobile insurance companies may raise premiums even after a first offense.

Because traffic violations will affect your insurance and possibly create a criminal record, it is crucial to have an attorney represent you from the initial stage of the case. The Law Office of Douglas P. Mayer can help those charged with a traffic violation avoid the expensive, time consuming and frustrating ordeal involving court appearances, fines, and forms that could have a devastating effect on your finances and driving privileges.

The Law Office of Douglas P. Mayer offers aggressive defense to clients issued traffic citations involving:

  • Speeding
  • Running a Red Light
  • Failing to Stop at a Stop Sign
  • Driving Without a Valid Driver's License
  • Driving Without Valid Vehicle Registration
  • Driving Without Valid Insurance
  • Driving Under the Influence
  • Leaving the Scene of an Accident (Hit and Run)
  • Reckless Driving
My office strives to negotiate a dismissal of a moving violation in exchange for a guilty plea on a non-moving violation; a dismissal if the issuing officer fails to appear at trial; dismissal if the ticket is factually or legally incorrect or defective; as well as working to dismiss the charge after a probationary period is satisfied.
