Although most people don’t think they need an attorney for a traffic offense, there are a variety of reasons why it would be important to retain a criminal defense attorney to fight some of the violations. Obviously, serious traffic offenses such as DUI, driving with a suspended license, hit and run, drag racing, reckless driving and other serious driving infractions would require an experienced legal counsel to protect you from large fines and a conviction, but some of the smaller traffic violations can also lead to serious consequences.
You may have been cited for a moving violation that could trigger a suspension, if you have too many points on your driving record. This could also impact your employment and insurance rates, due to what appears on your record. Although you may think you have no chance of winning against a traffic citation, the Law Offices of Jeffrey S. Vallens has been helping San Fernando Valley residents for over 22 years in handling traffic violations so that you don’t lose your license or get those extra points on your driving record. Our legal team is familiar with the criminal justice system and can work to overturn your charges.
A citation for driving over 100 miles an hour can cost you a huge fine, two points on your driving record and a license suspension. Ask your insurance agent what will happen to your auto insurance rates if you license gets suspended or revoked for even thirty days. Call a lawyer who knows how to handle traffic tickets.
Driving on a suspended license is a misdemeanor. Convictions will cost you huge fines, two points, probation and up to a year in jail and they are priorable — it will be worse the next time. Call us before you plead guilty. We may be able to get your violation reduced, keep you out of jail or find some alternative to serving jail time.
If you have a commercial driver’s license or drive for a living you may have special needs. Commercial drivers are no longer eligible for traffic school, even in a non-commercial vehicle. Also, as of July first of this year, there is no more second offender (12 hour) traffic school. This means, there is even more chance of getting points on your record or risking a license suspension for too many points. Call our traffic ticket attorney Van Nuys today who can guide you through the traffic courts and possibly avoid costly points on your driving record.
Lucky for all of you commercial drivers, the LAW HAS CHANGED! Commercial drivers who are driving non-commercial vehicles can now attend traffic school once every 18 months.
There can be serious consequences to certain traffic offenses, with some even involving jail time if the charge is serious enough. Don’t let this happen to you. By retaining a skilled criminal defense lawyer, you can feel confident we will aggressively defend you against your charges and strive to get the charges lowered or dismissed altogether. Remember that a simple traffic offense can severely impact your job, your family and even your future employment prospects. Contact the Law Offices of Jeffrey S. Vallens today to find out how we can help you.
