Traffic Tickets Put a Skilled and Trial-Proven Attorney in Your Corner

Miami Traffic Ticket Lawyer

Don’t Pay Your Ticket – Fight It!

As is often the case with traffic tickets, drivers typically pay the ticket and then forget about it. However, motorists may have their licenses suspended or revoked if they accumulate too many points on their driving records, and failure to pay tickets can result in bench warrants being issued for the arrests of those drivers.

Certain traffic offenses in themselves can result in misdemeanor or even felony criminal charges. Just as is the case with any criminal allegation, alleged offenders are presumed innocent and must have their guilt proven beyond a reasonable doubt. However, this can only happen if you fight the ticket rather than paying for it.
