Traffic Citations lawyers in wilkes-barre, PA
A traffic citation in Pennsylvania can severely complicate your life. In addition to the expensive fines and Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) driver’s license points, a traffic ticket in PA can lead to higher car insurance costs, a license suspension, and in certain cases, the possibility of jail time.
Of course, the most pressing threat is the potential loss of license that can wreak havoc on your ability to drive to work (or to drive for work) and thus diminish your ability to earn. Therefore, it you have received a traffic citation it is important to understand Pennsylvania's Motor Vehicle Code, its consequences, and to make an informed decision on how to best resolve the ticket.

Protect your rights
If you have been charged with a serious traffic offense, fear that your ticket may lead to a suspension, or want to fight the citation because you disagree with the charge, you should contact a criminal defense attorney that understands the Pennsylvania’s Motor Vehicle Code and is experienced defending traffic cases. Hiring a lawyer is important when your rights are at risk because PA driving laws are complex, and a skilled lawyer will help you protect those rights.
Avoid Points & License Suspensions
PennDOT has a record of all drivers in PA. If a driver is convicted of a moving violation points are added to the driver’s record. The number of points depends on the offense the driver was convicted of violating. When points are accumulated a driver may be required to pass a written test, attend a Departmental Hearing, take a special on road driver’s test, or serve a fifteen (15) day, thirty (30) day, sixty (60) day or more PA driver’s license suspension. A suspended driver’s license will cause extreme inconvenience and has the potential to cause an economic hardship.
The fines associated with a traffic citation in PA are an obvious financial harm; however, the collateral consequence of an increased insurance rate is the long-term and more troubling financial concern. According to some auto insurance experts, the average speeding violation will increase your insurance rates nearly 30%. This could add up to thousands of dollars for many drivers.
You may get a few traffic tickets in your lifetime and have to appear in court once or twice. As experienced criminal defense lawyers, we spend our days defending the accused, preparing cross-examinations, and litigating cases in courtrooms. Thus, every day we are in front of judges and juries, arguing with district attorneys, cross examining police officers, and negotiating plea deals when necessary. Furthermore, police officers and prosecutors know that we are ready and willing to take a case to trial and that we are prepared to win. That equates to leverage that an unrepresented traffic ticket defendant simply does not have.
Please call us at 570-371-3737 so we can learn more about your citation, evaluate your case, and explain what we can do to help you.
