Serious traffic offenses go far beyond the typical municipal traffic citation and could lead to time behind bars. When you are facing a criminal traffic charge such as driving with a suspended license or reckless driving, your potential penalties are far greater than a simple fine. If convicted, you may spend time in jail and have your driver’s license suspended or revoked. A Prince William traffic lawyer can handle your administrative and criminal hearings, offering you effective defense representation to help maintain your freedom and your driving privileges. See these other pages if you are facing more serious violations like a DUI charge (see here) or reckless driving charges (learn more).

How Can a Prince William Traffic Attorney Help?
Though some people will fight a municipal traffic ticket, most people simply curse their luck, pay the fine, and go about their business. However, if you have been charged with reckless driving, driving while suspended, or driving an unregistered vehicle, there is much more at stake than just a dent in your bank account. For example, a conviction of reckless driving is a Class I misdemeanor that carries penalties including six demerit points against your DMV driving record, up to $2,500 in fines, a possible jail sentence of up to one year, and a six month suspension of your driver’s license. For many people, a serious traffic charge is their first experience as a criminal defendant.
Those who have been caught driving while their license was suspended for a prior criminal action such as DUI have seen the inside of a courtroom before, but understand the possible implications of further offenses. Regardless if you are charged as a first offender or subsequent offender, the attorneys with our firm can provide the solid defense strategy that can help you fight the prosecution.
