You Have Options When Faced With DUI Charges Or Traffic Citations
We all make mistakes behind the wheel, and we all sometimes drive in ways that we know we shouldn’t. Driving-related offenses are the most likely way that many of us will encounter the criminal justice system.
But even though these offenses are common, getting charged or cited can greatly disrupt your life and cost you more money than you might expect. That’s why it is important to address a DUI/DWI charge or a traffic citation with the help of an experienced attorney. In Upper Marlboro and surrounding areas of Maryland, Thomas Sims Law Firm is the firm to contact.
Have You Been Charged With Drunk Driving?
If you were recently arrested for drunk driving, you are likely feeling stressed and scared about the future. A conviction can result in steep fines, probation or jail time, and a host of other consequences.
You may assume that the evidence against you is too strong and that you need to plead guilty. But before you do, contact our firm to discuss your legal options. Drunk driving cases are not always as airtight as police and prosecutors would like you to believe. We may be able to help you successfully fight the charges in court or otherwise resolve them in a favorable manner.
Traffic Tickets Can Be More Serious Than You Think
Our attorneys can also help you contest, negotiate or otherwise resolve a wide range of traffic offenses, including those related to:
- Speeding in a school zone or construction zone
- Failing to yield right of way
- Disobeying a stop sign or traffic signal
- Reckless driving
- Driving without a valid license
- Driving without insurance
- Making an illegal U-turn
- Fleeing the scene of an accident (hit-and-run offenses)
- Driving without current vehicle registration
Most people simply pay traffic tickets, assuming that they are not worth contesting. But by paying the fine, you are pleading guilty, and that can result in consequences that could cost you more than a fine. Each traffic violation adds points to your driver’s license, which will likely raise insurance rates. After you’ve accumulated a certain number of points, your license could be suspended.
Working with a skilled attorney like those at our firm could actually save you money in the long run by protecting your driving record and keeping your insurance rates reasonable. Before you pay that ticket, contact us to discuss your options.
