Traffic Tickets Can Be More Serious Than You May Think
I have been practicing law in Michigan for 23 years and I focus and specialize in traffic offenses. I have handled thousands of traffic cases consisting of traffic civil infractions and misdemeanors in Michigan. I mainly handle offenses in the following counties:
- St. Clair
Many traffic offenses carry points that will appear on your driving record. This may make it difficult or impossible to seek or maintain employment and will cause your insurance premiums to increase. Even if you don’t live in Michigan or if you live in Canada, simply paying tickets that carry points will show up on your driving record.
Depending on the type of traffic violation, you may be facing large fines and points on your driving record. You could even be sent to jail for traffic misdemeanors and felonies. The best way to understand the possible consequences of your traffic offense is to speak to an experienced traffic attorney as soon as possible. I always offer FREE detailed consultations over the phone or in person.
TEXT a picture of your ticket and I will call to discuss your case for free. I can also help you with motorcycle tickets.
Do Not Ignore Your Traffic Tickets
For many traffic violations, if you don’t take care of it properly your situation will only become worse and your driver’s license may eventually be suspended. Failing to address a traffic violation can result in:
- License suspension
- Restricted license
- A warrant for your arrest for traffic misdemeanors or felonies
Call me for a free consultation and to help you understand what your ticket means for you. I will explain the best way to handle it in your situation. I will fight aggressively to help you avoid points that will result in increased insurance and license suspensions. In most cases, investing a relatively small amount of money in an experienced traffic lawyer now can save you thousands of dollars in insurance increases and license restoration costs later.
When you are involved in an auto accident, you have various duties which are outlined in Michigan’s statutes. If you fail to comply with these requirements, you could be charged with a criminal offense and be sentenced in jail for up to 90 days. In addition, the Secretary of State can impose six points on your driving record. But the laws can be confusing without the help of an attorney to help you understand what your duties are.
If you are involved in an auto accident and the police appear at the scene, they may prepare a traffic crash report. If this happens the Secretary of State will make a notation on your driving record that you were involved in an accident. This will happen even if the accident is not your fault.
Individuals Who Are Not United States Citizens
If you receive a traffic criminal offense and you are not a United States Citizen, this could possibly affect your immigration status and you be deported. I advise these clients to meet with an immigration lawyer to understand the possible immigration consequences.
Auto Accidents Which Are Not Your Fault
You may be entitled to medical or monetary benefits. If you are in an auto accident and the other driver is listed as the at-fault driver on the traffic crash report, please call me to discuss your rights. If you are injured, you may be eligible for benefits under your insurance policy (first party benefits) and benefits under the at-fault drivers policy (third party benefits).
I typically handle these cases on a contingency fee. This means that my office only gets paid if you recover money.
