What services do you provide?
All traffic matters ranging from minor infections, to misdemeanors such as reckless driving and driving on a suspended license, to DUIs.
How do your services benefit me?
An experienced trial attorney who will fight your case in court if a suitable resolution cannot be achieved through plea negotiations.
What are some tips for drivers who are pulled over for a traffic violation (some do’s and don’ts) that can help to avoid conviction or to reduce charges?
Do not acknowledge the reason the officer alleged you had committed. Be polite and cooperative. You need only provide your license and vehicle registration. You must step out if directed. However, do not say anything or perform any tests. Police are trained to gather information that will serve as evidence in the prosecutor’s case to convict you. The less you speak and the less information you give the officer, the better defense I’ll have for you in court.
Do I really need a lawyer?
Only for jailable offenses such as reckless driving, driving on suspended license, hit and run and DUI type cases.
What is your success rate?
It is difficult to rate success for traffic cases. Often times, the offense was actually committed and the likelihood of getting convicted as charged is very high. If that harsher charge can be reduced or amended to a lesser offense, then it is considered a success.
When should I pay the fine vs fight the charge?
It depends on the likelihood of success and whether you want to pay a lawyer for the opportunity to try and fight the charge.
What types of information do you need from me to get started?
The information I need from you depends on the type of case. For a traffic or criminal case, I would need all charging documents (basically anything the jail gave you when you were released from the jail).
