Bradenton Traffic Offense Attorney

In Florida, you accumulate points against your driver's license every time that you are convicted of a moving violation. Every time that you pay a ticket for speeding or other moving violation, it counts as a conviction. Habitual traffic offenders are in serious danger of license suspension. If you also drive a vehicle for a living, your commercial driver's license (CDL) could be suspended or revoked as well, which means you would lose your job.

I am D. Scott Rieth, an experienced Sarasota-Bradenton-area traffic offense lawyer. As a former state prosecutor with more than 20 years of legal experience, I can protect your rights and prepare a solid defense to your case effectively and efficiently.

Fighting Driver's License Points And Mitigating Penalties

Preserving your driving privileges, reducing charges and fines, and avoiding points are my goals in your case. I will work to get your case dismissed and to put the burden of proof for the DUI or traffic violation accusation on the prosecution, but I will also prepare a solid case for preservation of your rights and privileges in the event that a dismissal is not possible.

Points against your driver's license will substantially raise the premiums you must pay for auto insurance, and your license can be suspended on the following scale:

  • 12 points in a 12-month period — license suspension for 30 days
  • 18 points in 18 months — license suspension for three months
  • 24 points in 36 months — license suspension for one year

Worse yet, if you have been charged with repeat offenses of any of the following, you could face serious jail time, mandatory minimum sentencing, probation, fines and more:

As your attorney, I review the full circumstance of your case. I dig for law enforcement officer errors, improper evidence collection, insufficient evidence, warrantless traffic stops and other affirmative defenses available in your case. I can negotiate with the prosecutor on your behalf, which may prevent you from having to show up in court at all.
