When hiring us as your criminal attorney, we aim to provide assistance in any traffic offense you are being charged with. When it comes to speeding tickets, we try to navigate the court system in a way that will minimize the points that appear on your driver record, which can save you a lot of money in the future. Many citations can be resolved without you ever having to appear in court. If you have been accused of driving while impaired, we will do our best to prepare a defense that will protect your rights and challenge the state's case.
