Traffic Offenses

Traffic Ticket Defense Lawyers

A simple traffic ticket can become a complicated problem if the proper legal steps are not followed. In Alabama, all traffic offenses, ranging from speeding to DUI, are processed through the criminal court system and can result in some serious fines and criminal penalties.

The attorneys at Martinson & Beason, P.C. are prepared to help you avoid the confusion and uncertainty surrounding the criminal justice system, and have experience handling these matters in the Circuit, District and Municipal courts of Alabama.

It is vital to talk to an experienced traffic ticket attorney as soon as possible after receiving a traffic citation to ensure that you are aware of all of the options available in order to secure the best possible outcome for your case. Additionally, your first court date may be very soon after you receive the ticket, and you will want an attorney to help you. Ignoring a small traffic ticket can lead to your driver’s license being revoked, suspended, an arrest warrant, fines, and points on your license. Call us today if you have been cited for a traffic offense. We’d love to help.
