Receiving too many traffic citations and criminal infractions can cause the loss of driving privileges. Pleading guilty to any traffic violation or offense will lead to your insurance premiums going up. Sometimes a traffic violation or offense will lead to your insurance policy being canceled altogether. For some serious offenses, like drunk driving, your license could be suspended or revoked, even for a first offense.

Defending Against Traffic Violations in Florida Courts
Florida has many laws regulating how people drive and what they must do behind the wheel. Some of them, like reckless driving and racing on a highway, are criminal offenses. They may be felonies or misdemeanors, but all can result in jail time, heavy fines and a criminal record. For many criminal traffic offenses, a conviction can lead to your driver's license being suspended or revoked.
Other offenses that are labeled as “noncriminal violations” may seem like no big deal. However, the consequences of being found guilty of one of these violations can be very serious. The violations can hurt you in your pocketbook, through fines and insurance hikes. The violations can take away your time while you complete driving school and attend court dates. After points accumulate, they can even take away your ability to drive.
A dedicated attorney can represent you. You may escape the serious penalties and consequences. You may never have to make a single court appearance or even visit to our office.
