When you receive a traffic citation, you need to understand the consequences of your offense, especially if you face potentially serious penalties. For more than three decades, the Law Office of Harry A. Suissa, P.C. has helped clients deal with traffic violations.

Types of traffic violations

All traffic violations are not equal. Traffic infractions are minor offenses that generally involve paying a fine and accumulating points against your driving record. In addition to fines, a misdemeanor is punishable by increased driving points, loss of license, and jail time. The most serious traffic violations are charged as felonies, which can mean years in prison or time spent on probation, increased driving points, and driving restrictions. Failing to pay fines and repeated violations, even if relatively minor, can result in a suspended or revoked driver's license.

Client representation in traffic tickets cases

Seeking legal advice or representation can help you avoid serious traffic violation consequences later down the road. Or if you have already arrived at the point where you face serious consequences, effective legal representation may help reduce charges, avoid jail, or allow you to keep your license.

An experienced Silver Spring traffic ticket attorney at our firm can provide legal help with the following types of traffic violations:

  • Speeding tickets
  • Driving with a suspended/revoked license
  • Driving without a license
  • Driving without insurance
  • Reckless driving
  • Vehicular manslaughter
  • Leaving the scene of an accident

We represent clients living in Maryland and Washington, D.C. as well as out-of-state drivers. License suspension and revocation are subject to different laws in each state. However, in both Maryland and Washington, D.C.

Many people do not understand the citation they receive, and consequently may shove the ticket in the glove box and neglect to pay it. When traffic tickets stack up and are not paid, you can face a bench warrant for arrest and other penalties.
