Traffic Law

The most important first step is getting all of the paperwork that you have accumulated from the initial Summons to any additional correspondence from the court in question to me so that I can decipher EXACTLY what is going on.  Defending on the traffic citation, it often makes sense to secure a continuance to take a Driver's Improvement Class if you have not already taken one in the past 24 months.  It is important to note that driver's 18 and under, MUST TAKE THE IN PERSON COURSE AND ARE NOT GOING TO GET ANY CREDIT FRON THE COURT FOR AN ONLIINE COURSE.  I'm telling you this now, because I don't want anyone to waste their moneyl  


At the initial trial court level, (General Distrist Court), the court may make a ruling that we don't agree with or one which we belive that the punishment was too severe for the changes you were facing.  In tha case, we have 10 days to appeal to the Circuit Court & then we get to hear the case all over again FROM THE BEGINNING except that there's a Commonwealth's Attorney who is prosecuting the case & who, by definition, we have the opportunity to make a deal with before your trial date.  Appealing is basically a win-win situation.
