Any Traffic Ticket Can Be Contested
Being pulled over is often unexpected, as we are all in our vehicles so frequently that driving has almost become second nature. However, the laws still must be followed. Law enforcement is often on the lookout for drivers who are speeding and breaking the traffic laws in other ways. Many people think of a ticket as a minor infraction and just pay it or even ignore it. But you should not do either of these things. An attorney can help you understand your rights and why you should fight a ticket you have received.
At Caffee Law Office, our lawyer is fluent in the language of the Wisconsin traffic laws. As a skilled criminal defense advocate, she leads our firm in providing clients with the information they need to fully understand how a ticket may impact their lives. We work to minimize the consequences on your life whenever possible.
Protecting Your Driving Privileges
All traffic tickets are considered criminal offenses according to the law. One citation may not seem like any big deal, but it can be depending on what the citation was for. Certain types of traffic offenses can be subject to serious punishments, including large fines and possible jail time. Your driving privileges are at risk as well, as a serious infraction or multiple tickets can result in the suspension of your driver’s license. Your right to drive, your livelihood and your freedom are at stake.
We advocate for individuals accused of all types of traffic offenses, including:
- Speeding (1-24 mph over the speed limit)
- Reckless driving (25-plus mph over the speed limit)
- Failure to stop at a stop sign or red light
- Failure to yield
- Failure to use the turn signal
- Illegal lane changes
- Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs
- Operating a vehicle without a driver’s license
The state of Wisconsin uses a point system to log infractions on your driving record. We will fight to minimize the points against you and to dismiss tickets when possible. If your teen got a ticket, help them preserve their record and driving rights.
When a traffic offense is serious, we attempt to negotiate with prosecutors in a timely manner to minimize or dismiss the charges against you. We work to resolve the matter outside of court, but provide aggressive representation in front of a judge and/or jury if the case proceeds to court.
