Traffic Ticket Attorney in Oakland County

Strategic Defense for Moving Violations in & around Bloomfield Hills (248) 516-0988

The State of Michigan issued 1.38 million traffic citations in 2016 alone, which is almost 3,800 citations a day. If you have recently been given a ticket, you are far from alone. Once a ticket has been issued, you need to know how to proceed. Your first option is to simply pay the ticket. To pay the ticket constitutes pleading guilty or no contest to the traffic offense. Another possibility is traffic school. Depending on your prior driving record and other factors, a judge may exchange traffic school for dismissing your ticket. Otherwise, you have the choice to fight the ticket by taking it to court. A criminal defense lawyer can advise you on the best option for your case.

In trouble with the law? Call José R. Fanego, Attorney at Law at (248) 516-0988 to discuss your case.

Avoiding Points on Your License

Each ticket you receive can add points to your license. These points stay on your record for a certain number of years, which in turn results in an increase in your insurance premiums. A high enough number of points can even cause the state to deem you a dangerous driver and revoke your license.

Common traffic violations that result in tickets include:

  • Having an open container of alcohol in the vehicle
  • Refusing a breathalyzer test while under 21 years of age
  • Driving above the speed limit
  • Improper passing
  • Driving carelessly
  • Failing to stop at a railroad crossing or for a school bus

Why You Need an Advocate

Traffic tickets may seem trivial, but they can make life more difficult by raising your insurance rate or by putting your license itself at risk. Paying the ticket may keep you out of court, but it won’t prevent the points from being added to your license. An experienced defense attorney can ensure that your case gets the fair hearing it deserves and reduce the risk of wrongful conviction and/or excessive fines.

If you are in the Oakland County area and are worried about your traffic tickets, call José R. Fanego, Attorney at Law at (248) 516-0988.
