We’ve Helped Many Clients Facing Traffic Tickets in Pennsylvania
Our clients include those dealing with their first traffic violation, such as this concerned mother’s son:
“I was so afraid that my son would be stuck with a huge penalty for his first speeding offense. We had no option once I paid fine (or so I thought). However, after some research I realized I could still battle the results with a Lawyer’s help. I researched and spoke to many offices. McKenzie Law Firm, P.C. was by far the most responsive. David had the fairest pricing, and there was no way I could have helped my son without his knowledge of the law, system, options, and all this through a pandemic. Grade: 100%”
— Sonia Fritz
Our team is also ready to fight for those who have faced traffic court before, without judgment, like this client:
“Thank you Attorney McKenzie!!! I cannot say enough about this firm. From the moment I called and scheduled a consultation, I was met with compassion and understanding. I was facing a mandatory jail sentence for Driving Under a Suspended License DUI related.
In speaking with Attorney McKenzie and his team, I never felt judged. I felt that Attorney McKenzie understood my dilemma and cared about my situation personally.”
— Michele Lawrence
Everyone deserves a fair fight with support from a lawyer who is on their side. We want to be that legal team for you.
Our Attorney Fights a Wide Range of Traffic Violations for Clients
Depending on the various factors involved, traffic violations can range from minor infractions that result in fines or points on your driving record to criminal offenses that could result in jail time. Our traffic ticket attorney is prepared to handle the full spectrum of offenses, giving each case the time and attention it deserves.
Minor Traffic Infractions
The most minor of traffic citations generally involve non-moving violations, like:
- Parking illegally, such as leaving your vehicle in front of a fire hydrant or in a handicap space without the necessary permit
- Failing to pay a parking meter
- Unauthorized vehicle modifications
UGPD issues uniform traffic tickets for these non-criminal infractions. Though the consequences are typically fines, multiple violations or failure to pay can have serious consequences.
Violations involving careless driving have the potential to be minor or severe. Some of the most common moving violations that result in traffic tickets include:
- Dangerous driving maneuvers, such as illegal U-turns
- Distracted driving
- Running a red light
- Failing to signal
- Driving without valid vehicle registration or insurance
The consequences of moving violations increase in severity with each ticket. You can face higher fines and additional points on your license. Allocating a certain number of points triggers automatic license suspension.
Some traffic tickets can involve criminal charges, depending on the severity of the offense. This generally applies to particularly dangerous scenarios, especially when accidents occur. Examples include:
- Excessive speeding
- Driving under the influence (DUI) of alcohol or drugs
- Leaving an accident scene
- Collisions that result in bodily injury or death
- Driving with a suspended license
Those facing serious traffic crimes especially want to consider hiring our traffic crime defense lawyer, as these offenses can result in thousands of dollars in fines and years in prison.

Your options after receiving a traffic ticket in Upper Gwynedd, PA, are generally as follows:
