Traffic Ticket Defense Attorney

In Florida, a moving violation such as a speeding ticket, failure to signal, running a red light, illegal U-turn or a drunk driving charge will result in points against your driver's license. If you incur too many points, your insurance company may raise your premiums substantially and you could lose your driver's license for a month to a year:

  • 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

If this is your first ticket, it may seem easier to pay the ticket rather than deal with the court system. However, if you receive one ticket for multiple moving violations or two speeding tickets in the next 36 months, you could lose your driving privileges.

Why Work With Me?

When you hire me as your lawyer, I will review the circumstances surrounding your traffic stop and evaluate the instruments that were used to measure your speed. If the law enforcement officer made an error or the speed-measuring device was not calibrated or maintained correctly, I will fight to have your ticket dismissed. I may also be able to negotiate a lower or no-points offense.

In many cases, I can handle your ticket remotely, so you never have to visit my office or the courtroom. This is especially convenient for out-of-state travelers who received speeding tickets while driving through Florida.
