Traffic Offenses & Violations

Criminal Lawyer Shakopee, MN

There is a misconception that traffic offenses are not serious. A ticket is issued, the ticket requires payment, and a mark is placed on your driving record. While your driving privileges may not be revoked, the mark on your driving record can cause a great deal of issues. Those issues involve not being able to acquire a job that requires a clean driving record, eventually losing your license if you have too many marks against you, and increases in insurance rates.

If you have received a citation for any type of traffic offense or violation, you have the right to defend yourself against the charge with the help of an experienced Waconia criminal defense attorney. Your criminal defense attorney will look at the violation and come up with a defense strategy that can obtain the best possible result for you.

  • Reckless or careless driving

If you or a loved one has been charged with any of these traffic offenses, you have the right to a skilled criminal attorney who will be able to evaluate every element of your case and help you obtain the best possible result.

Protecting Your Legal Ability To Drive

Even if the offense is one that resulted in a traffic ticket, you can challenge the ticket. You don’t have to pay it and move on. Paying it is an admission of guilt, even if you don’t agree with the charge. If you don’t agree with it, then you and your Minnesota criminal defense lawyer can work together to fight it and possibly have the matter resolved. Resolving the matter means not having a negative mark on your driving record, not having to pay the ticket amount, and not having to deal with higher insurance rates. There is a lot of money that can be saved in the long-term, as well as a lot of inconvenience related to the negative mark on the driving record.
