You do not just have to pay your traffic ticket and hope it goes away. When you pay your ticket, you plead responsible or guilty, and that ticket goes on your record. From running a red light to a DUI, one conviction now could mean greater consequences down the road. At the East Valley and Phoenix Law Office of Karl A. Mueller, we can help you fight your traffic offense and protect you rights in court, for today and the future.
Every Arizona Court Is Different
Different Arizona courts handle traffic violations in different ways. Having devoted so much of his career to traffic violation litigation, attorney Karl A. Mueller understands how to tailor each defense depending on the charges and the court. Having handled hundreds of traffic violations and drunk driving cases, he knows how to respond to officer's statements and prosecutor's allegations. If you have received a traffic ticket, our firm can help you.
Handling All Types Of Civil Traffic Violations
If you pay a ticket for a traffic violation, the financial consequences are not over. A finding of responsible can mean additional traffic points, and that can mean an increase in your insurance rates. We can protect your rights in court, argue the facts and determine whether or not the ticket was written up properly. We are also very familiar with how to combat photo enforcement.
We routinely handle a variety of civil traffic offenses, including the following civil traffic offenses:
- Red light
- Wide left turn
- Failure to control speed to avoid a collision
Fighting Criminal Traffic Violations
The consequences for a criminal traffic violation are significantly steeper. In addition to heavier fines and insurance point penalties, you will face the possibility of jail time. Unlike a civil traffic offense, a subpoenaed officer almost always shows up to court. With a higher level of difficulty and greater potential consequences, an experienced defense lawyer can be even more important. We handle the following criminal traffic violations:
- Speeding, including criminal speeding
- Reckless driving, including racing other vehicles
- Leaving the scene (also called hit-and-run)
- Overly aggressive driving such as trying to cut someone off
- Driving on a suspended or revoked license in Arizona
