Our firm understands that not every traffic ticket requires the assistance of an attorney. However, there are times when a ticket and a trip to traffic court can land you in serious hot water, even to the extent of your facing jail time. In other situations a traffic ticket can cause your insurance premiums to increase or, in extreme situations where you may not have a perfect driving record, for your insurance to be completely cancelled. This is why our firm offers free consultations to all of our clients on traffic related issues. We will discuss your situation for free, and give you our honest assessment on whether you need an attorney or not.
