Attorney for Traffic Violations in Oakland County
Defense Attorney for Traffic Violations in & around Bloomfield Hills 248-645-1400.
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.
