Have You Been Charged with a Criminal Traffic Violation in Miami?
While many people believe traffic offenses are straightforward cases, the reality is that not every attorney is capable of providing the comprehensive representation needed to win.

Our seasoned Miami traffic crime offense attorney will inform you of what you are up against, your legal rights and legal options that will ultimately help you come out on top.

So, what do you do next? You have several options, although the last option is best:
- Pay your ticket without attending traffic school
- Pay your ticket and attend traffic school
- Contest your traffic ticket in traffic court without legal representation
- Hire an attorney to contest your traffic ticket in traffic court (the best option)

By retaining a traffic lawyer in Miami, you increase your chances of getting reduced penalties such as avoiding fines, jail, driving points added to your record or a withhold of adjudication, meaning you won’t have a permanent mark on your record and points on your driver’s license.
Miami is a big city consisting of many drivers, meaning a traffic crime is much easier to commit compared to less populated cities. As such, if you got were accused of a traffic crime, it is in your best interests to retain aggressive defense to yield the best possible results.

Types of Criminal Traffic Cases We Defend
Traffic crimes are considered minor offenses with minor consequences. Contrary to popular belief, however, traffic crimes should be seen as serious offenses with major consequences. Although many criminal traffic violations are misdemeanors, a person can still suffer one year in jail, one year of probation and $1,000 fines if found guilty. That’s why our Miami traffic crime offenses lawyer will stop at nothing to help you avoid the detrimental impacts of your case, no matter how serious it is.
Our team handles a wide range of traffic offenses, including:
- Traffic Tickets
- Culpable negligence
- Careless driving - Florida Statute 316.1925
- DUI - Florida Statute 396.193
- Driving with a suspended license - Florida Statute 322.34
- Hit and run - Florida Statute 316.1935
- Reckless driving - Florida Statute 316.192
Points & Driver’s License Suspensions
All traffic crimes impose certain amounts of driving points upon a conviction. For most traffic infractions in Florida, if you pay your traffic ticket outright without attending traffic school or plead guilty in traffic court for your offense, you will accumulate points on your license and subsequently suffer a license suspension.
- 12 points accumulated within 12 months results in a 30-day suspension
- 18 points accumulated within 18 months results in a 3-month suspension
- 24 points accumulated within 36 months results in a 12-month suspension
It’s much easier to accumulate points on your license than you think. For example, going 8 miles over the speed limit and causing an accident is 6 points, littering is 3 points, and improperly restraining a child in a car seat is 3 points. Be mindful that added points on your driver’s license may not only lead to a suspension of your driving privileges but also a substantial increase in your car insurance premiums. The bottom line is that the more points you accumulate, the more penalties you will suffer.
