Traffic Violations

Are you nervous about getting in front of a Judge to “plead” your case?

Want to keep your insurance rate low? Have prior traffic convictions you are concerned will affect the Judge’s decision? Don’t want to take time off work or school to go to court? Drive for a living and need to keep a clean record? Were you involved in an accident that the police officer did not see and merely issued you a ticket based on the other driver’s version of events?

If you answered yes to any of these questions or have other concerns, contact the Law Office of Monica Guilarte now for a free consultation.

Although traffic citations may seem minuscule, they could lead to an accumulation of points on your driving record, increased insurance rates, and possibly jail time. Hiring a lawyer that is knowledgeable of the law and defenses can help you avoid these consequences, as well as keep your driving record clean.

Speeding, Reckless Driving, Aggressive Driving, Failing to Obey Traffic Control Device, Negligent Driving, Unsafe Lane Change, Following too Closely, Failing to Stop at Red Light/Stop Sign, Failing to Control Speed to Avoid a Collision, Driving w/ Suspended Registration **Failing to pay for a small traffic violation could lead to a suspension of your driver’s license.

Serious traffic citations (must appear/jail-able) include but are not limited to:

Driving While Suspended, Driving While Revoked, Hit & Run; Fleeing & Eluding Police; Driving w/out a License, Driving w/out Insurance **Failing to appear in court for a serious traffic citation will result in a bench warrant being issued for your arrest.
