If you or someone you love received a traffic ticket for a moving violation, we can help you with the aftermath and follow up. A citation can mean you face short-term, long-term, or permanent loss of your driving privileges, and possibly even more serious criminal charges and penalties. However, you do not have to face these charges on your own or defend yourself without guidance and support.
At McKenzie Law Firm, P.C., our Lansdale attorney for traffic tickets & moving violations will review the circumstances of your arrest, explain the scope of punishable offenses that stem from your alleged traffic violations, and defend you in court. When we represent you, we carefully review the details, evidence, and witness statements against you. Then, we develop a solid defense plan and fight hard for the best possible outcome in your case.
Traffic Tickets and Traffic Crimes We Defend in Lansdale
Building a persuasive defense to a traffic ticket or moving violation can be complicated on your own. When we represent you, our law firm brings our familiarity with state and local law and how Lansdale traffic and criminal courts handle their caseload. We represent clients facing violations for:
- Drunk driving
- Hit and run
- Aggressive driving
- Reckless driving
- Road rage
- Running a red light
- Driving without a license
- Driving with no insurance
We also help clients fight to avoid accumulating points on their Pennsylvania driving record. If you were cited for any of these traffic crimes in Lansdale, our traffic ticket lawyer can help. Our team will investigate your ticket, arrest, or both, conduct an independent investigation, and interview any witnesses who can support your version of events.
Evidence We Collect for Your Defense
Whether your case resolves with a plea agreement or through the trial process, our team works hard to build a supportive case file for you. That starts with investigating for evidence such as:
- Traffic, intersection, and red-light camera photos and videos
- Notes and diagrams from car accident reports, where applicable
- Witness statements and your own recollections
If applicable to your case, we also review the results of any blood alcohol content (BAC) tests conducted on you and challenge the calibration and efficacy of testing equipment. When necessary, we consult automotive and other specialists who can support your defense.
How Pennsylvania Law Classifies Traffic Crimes
In Lansdale, traffic crimes can be classified as either misdemeanors or felonies. Still, even the most minor traffic crimes can add points to your driving record – accumulating enough points can lead to suspension of your driver’s license, as the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) outlines.
The Pennsylvania Vehicle Code provides information on punishable traffic tickets and crimes and their corresponding classifications, financial penalties, and sentence durations. Our legal team will help you understand where your alleged traffic crime fits in these guidelines and the extent of the penalties you face.
We Could Minimize the Impact of a Traffic Citation
While we may be able to have your traffic ticket dismissed, sometimes we need to take a different approach to cases. Plea arrangements are often an effective tool for both parties in a criminal case. It lessens the burden on the court system, allowing cases to move along faster.
Meanwhile, the plea bargain process can provide the following benefits for criminal defendants:
- Defendants can have pending charges reduced.
- Defendants can receive lighter sentences.
- Defendants can avoid the uncertainty of a trial outcome.
A plea could also keep you from receiving points to your driving record or a mark on your criminal record. We will let you know if a plea deal is the best option for your case.
