The most serious of charges such as Driving While Intoxicated, Leaving the Scene of an Accident, and Driving While Suspended, carry obvious risks such as incarceration, loss of driving privileges, and steep fines. It is important to protect your freedom and privilege to drive by hiring an experienced attorney who will take the time to explore every possible defense.
Lesser offenses such as Reckless Driving, Failure to Yield the Right-of-Way, and Speeding, can also result in incarceration and a loss of driving privileges, but, like the more serious charges, can also carry hidden costs.
A recent study showed that a Reckless Driving conviction increases one’s insurance cost by an average of 22%. Speeding 15-29 miles per hour over the limit produced an average 12% increase in insurance premiums. While certain offenses can be prepaid (which results in a conviction); often the cost of an attorney is defrayed by the savings in fines and insurance premiums.
Additionally, often the attorney can represent the individual in court without the necessity of the client being present, particularly when the client is out of state.
