Issues Facing Broward County Drivers After Citations or Arrests

Some of the most common questions people might have when facing any type of traffic infraction include questions about:

  • Fines: In most traffic violations, both criminal and noncriminal, there is some kind of fine that will be assessed if you are found guilty or plead guilty or no contest.
  • Points: Each traffic moving violation for which you are adjudicated, including speeding, leads to the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles assessing points to your record. After a certain number of points within a certain time frame, your license will be suspended.
  • Traffic School: For some offenses, you can be required to attend classes for driver improvement.
  • License Suspension: After a certain amount of points within a certain timeframe, a failed or refused DUI test or other circumstances in the law, your license is suspended, and it is a criminal offense to drive.
  • License Revocation: For more serious matters, your license may be revoked for years or for life.
  • Hardship License: If your license has been suspended or revoked, you may qualify for a hardship license to drive for employment-based purposes.
  • Habitual Traffic Offender Designation: After a certain number of offenses, you may be designated a habitual traffic offender and your license can be revoked for five years or more.
  • Commercial Drivers: For commercial drivers, a bad driving record could mean losing their jobs. Commercial drivers also have higher levels of scrutiny.
  • Out of Town Drivers: There are many visitors to the Palm Beach and Broward County areas. If you receive any kind of infraction while driving in either county, it's important to resolve the matter. A local traffic attorney can help you do that.
  • Court Appearances: Some offenses require a court appearance.

  • ...A long weekend vacation in Palm Beach resulted in the potential for serious consequences that could have set me back in unimaginative ways. M+B was a truly incredible legal advocate and was always accessible within minutes to answer questions and discuss the progress of the case within the system - truly remarkable. I could not have retained better legal representation in my case in Palm Beach County.

  • I just had to commend you on the outstanding job you did on behalf of your client in court yesterday. If my clients were ever to ask me if I know of a good DUI defense attorney, I know to whom I can refer them!

  • I was facing hard prison time and punishment. [Larry] did everything to pull strings and get me into rehab. After meeting with many therapists I finally got one to diagnose me successfully with Bipolar. Thanks to Larry I have been sober since 6/19/09. My health is great and my family life is amazing. It's because he saw something in me and my family that I wasn't just an alcoholic there was something that told me it was something else.

  • Mr. Steven Bell, Words cant explain how thankful I am for you and your firm. I was facing felony charges and even looking at doing 5 years in jail! Not only did you fight for me, you got my case dismissed and dropped. For that, I don't have words to say “thank you” you were always kind and believed in me. You looked for every opportunity and you won! Thank you for being my guardian angel in disguise and steering me in the right direction. You are forever my “too go guy” thank you soooo much!
