Traffic Violations Lawyer in Baltimore and Annapolis
Don't just assume you will get the conviction and points without talking to me.
While all Maryland traffic tickets are frustrating and regrettable, many seem like they're not worth fighting. Yet even a simple speeding ticket can result in driving points, increased insurance rates and additional consequences if you receive another citation later.
Of particular importance is the speed which you are charged with. Maryland classifies speeding citations based upon speed and the Motor Vehicle Administration will assess points based upon how fast you were allegedly traveling. If you have a CDL license is extremely important to make sure your record is kept clean, not just because of the potential penalties with the State but also because of your employers expectations.
Many Judges on the District Court level treat these citations differently. Some try to access severe penalties while others do not. It is very important that your Lawyer understand and anticipate what is expected so you may get the best possible result.
An experienced Baltimore, Maryland traffic ticket lawyer can investigate the circumstances of your ticket and tell you whether it is possible to fight the charges.
I am attorney Jim Crawford and I have successfully fought hundreds of traffic violations for my clients, including:
- Exceeding the speed limit/speeding tickets
- Reckless driving
- Running a red light
- Failing to give a proper signal
- Driving too fast for traffic conditions
- Passing a stopped school bus or overtaking/passing an emergency vehicle
- Passing a vehicle at a crest or a grade
- Overloading a vehicle
- Hit and run
- Driving with an improper class of license
- Driving while not licensed
- Failure to report an accident
- Maryland DUI/DWI
- Fleeing or attempting to elude a police officer
A Maryland traffic ticket or speeding violation does not necessarily mean a conviction. Police officers make mistakes and, at time, even fail to appear at the hearings. I also undertake a full investigation to see if witnesses' accounts vary with police reports and other evidence.
Please note that Maryland law has changed recently. The procedures in requesting a hearing are different then in the recent past. Please feel free to call me for a free consultation.
