Traffic Violation Lawyers in Florida

Traffic Crimes

A traffic crime is any driving-related violation that occurs while operating a motor vehicle on Florida’s public roadways, and which carries criminal penalties. Criminal traffic offenses often have serious penalties for the accused, including jail, probation, a loss of driving privileges, fines, and a permanent criminal record.

Michael, a traffic defense lawyer in Florida has extensive experience litigating criminal traffic cases, including:

Although most of these charges are misdemeanors, certain aggravators, can easily escalate the charges to a felony.  Leaving the Scene of an Accident, for instance, is alone a misdemeanor; however, if the accident involves serious bodily injury, or death, the crime becomes a felony.

Criminal traffic charges should not be taken lightly, and no one should attempt to resolve such a case without first consulting a driving offense attorney. Doing so can help avoid or minimize the harsh consequences that often result from these types of offenses. Call Michael for a free consultation
