After A Traffic Violation, Remember That You Have Options
If you are dealing with a traffic ticket, you could be facing steep fines and potential points off your license.

Defending You Is My Top Priority
A traffic ticket is a massive inconvenience to anyone on the road. For those who are commercial drivers, it can be an even bigger pain. Your job could be at risk, and the domino effect is something your entire family could feel. That is why I do everything I can to build the strongest possible defense. You have the chance to fight, and I am here to represent you through this process. From speeding to running a red light, I am here for you. After examining your case, I will determine what the potential options are and will always discuss what I think is in your best interest.
One area I have a lot of experience in is dealing with violations due to Scott’s law. This law has harsh penalties for drivers who approach a police or emergency vehicle in the wrong way. You must proceed with caution and yield to the right of way by making a full lane change. If a lane change isn’t possible, you must reduce your speed and leave a safe distance until you are past the other vehicle. Unfortunately, police officers are using this violation improperly as a basis for a traffic stop. I can contest the validity of these stops and help you fight back.
