Royal Oak Traffic Ticket Defense Attorney
Don't Just Accept a Traffic Ticket; Hire a Fighter
A traffic ticket or civil infraction case begins when a law enforcement officer issues a Uniform Law Citation (ticket) claiming that you have violated the Michigan Vehicle Code, or a local ordinance (local law) that is similar to the Michigan Vehicle Code.
If you have received a ticket, it is important to read both sides of the ticket. The ticket will include a number at the top and will indicate the violation or violations that you were ticketed for, how you can respond to the ticket, what your rights are, and the badge number of the issuing officer.
Call Melder & Melder, P.C., to help you fight. Whether you were cited for a traffic violation in Oakland, Macomb, Wayne, Genesee, St. Clair, Livingston or Washtenaw counties, our Royal Oak traffic ticket defense lawyers can evaluate the situation and help you decide what to do next.
Many people do not realize that traffic citations can have more serious implications than just paying a fine. Even one ticket can result in significantly higher insurance premiums, due to our state's "points" violation system. Almost all traffic tickets add points to your driving record. Even a few of these points can cause severe license penalties, depending upon the charge, including jail, traffic school, and in some situations even driver's license suspension.
Our traffic ticket defense attorneys have helped clients throughout southeast Michigan fight their traffic violations and avoid harsh penalties. Contact us if you were cited for:
Reckless driving or careless driving
Driving without insurance
Driving with a suspended license
Failure to yield the right of way
Disobeying a traffic control device
If you intend to fight a traffic ticket, you need to respond immediately. Failure to respond and demand a hearing within the specified time will result in a default against you and your loss of your ability to fight. Do not delay. Call Melder & Melder, P.C., today.
