TRAFFIC TICKET DEFENSE


BECAUSE THERE IS NO POINT IN TAKING THE POINTS


  We handle more traffic tickets than probably any other firm in Escambia or Santa Rosa Counties.  While many people may not see the need for retaining an attorney for what they may consider a "simple" traffic ticket, in most cases it makes sense.  Consider the following scenarios:


  • 1: "I was speeding, I got caught, no big deal, I'll just pay the thing because I'm guilty" WRONG.  For every moving violation in the State of Florida, points are assessed against your driving record.  Accrue enough points in a set time period, and your license will be suspended for a period of time.  So if you have to drive for work, think about the possibility of losing your license for 30 days because of "no big deal" traffic tickets.  Points also affect your insurance rates and credit scores - this can end up being a big deal and costing you serious money in the long run.  


  • 2:"It would just be my word versus the Cop's, no way the judge believes me over him" WRONG.  Many (if not most) law enforcement vehicles in the area are equipped with dash-mounted cameras.  We can get these for you to use in Court.  Perhaps even more importantly, an experienced trial lawyer will be able to elicit facts in cross-examination that may back up your story.  AND REMEMBER - the same burden of proof in a criminal trial is required to convict you - BEYOND AND TO THE EXCLUSION OF EVERY REASONABLE DOUBT.  


  • 3: "I don't want to take a day off or drive across the country to go to court" WRONG.  Under the Florida Rules of Traffic Court, anyone charged with committing a traffic infraction who is represented by an attorney is not required to appear in Court.  Ever.  Mr. Wise will appear for you and on your behalf.  We often represent clients from throughout the country who receive tickets (usually on vacation).  No problem.
