Experienced Traffic Ticket Attorney in Morgan County, Georgia

A traffic ticket can mean points on your license, increased insurance premiums even beyond vehicle insurance, and—if you are a repeat offender or under 21—a suspended license. For commercial drivers—bus, taxi, Uber, Lyft, and truckers—this could mean the end to your livelihood. A traffic ticket might be pretextual, too, where the police make an unsubstantiated stop and find an open container or drugs in the car. That traffic ticket then escalates into a criminal charge of DUI or drug possession.

Or the police officer might not like your attitude, causing an arbitrary decision to increase a minor infraction like failure to signal into an aggressive driving charge, with all the escalating penalties.

Plus, if the traffic ticket is issued at the site of an accident that caused bodily or property damage, or even death, contesting that ticket is essential to your defense to a criminal charge, personal injury, or wrongful death action.

If you are under 21, a speeding ticket 24+ mph over the limit or other serious traffic violation will suspend your license for 120 days or more unless negotiated to a lesser offense.

Don’t just pay the fine! If you are facing a traffic case, consult with an experienced lawyer to determine the best course of action for you.

Why Hire a Traffic Ticket Lawyer in Morgan County, Georgia?

A traffic ticket, especially one issued at the site of an accident, has far-reaching implications, especially in Georgia which apportions liability for personal injury harm based on fault. That traffic ticket can quickly escalate into civil liability beyond the limits of your insurance policies for any injuries, fatalities, and property damage resulting from your driving.

At Michael Fulcher Law, we know how to approach defending traffic tickets with a broad view of protecting your driver’s license, further liability, and the financial burden of increased insurance premiums. We will defend you against all traffic charges:

  • Aggressive driving
  • Driving with a suspended license
  • Failing to signal a lane change
  • Failing to stop at a stop sign
  • Hit and Run/ Leaving the scene of an accident
  • Improper passing on a hill or where restricted
  • Open container
  • Reckless driving
  • Running a red light
  • Speeding

A ticket issued at the scene of an accident will need to be contested as an overall strategy in a later criminal prosecution, personal injury, or wrongful death suit.

We Can Help Your Traffic Ticket Case

Don’t try to represent yourself in traffic court. You are up against seasoned prosecutors and police officers who are accustomed to testifying under oath before a judge. An experienced defense lawyer can contest the sobriety checkpoint, the basis for the traffic stop, and analyze the police report, if there was any accident, to develop challenges to the prosecutor’s story.

It’s the role of a defense attorney to challenge the underlying validity of the traffic violations, seeking dismissal or lesser charges. Only seasoned lawyers know how to proceed to protect your driving privileges, your insurance policy, and your liberty.

Frequently Asked Questions

No, paying a traffic ticket in Georgia means pleading guilty to the offense. There are consequences that might be far-reaching, like probation, court costs, and fees, super speeder penalties, revocation or suspension of your driver’s license, points on your license, and information on any background check performed by a prospective employer or lender.

Your attorney can contest any mistakes in the ticket, even negotiating dismissal or reduction in charges. That dismissal or reduction in charges can mean a lot in terms of points on your license, and even your ability to drive. In addition, if there is accompanying criminal or civil liability, such a dismissal or reduction in charges can strengthen your defenses to any of these ancillary claims. An attorney can make appearances for you so that you are not missing work or school or family obligations.

Depending on the county or the offense, it is sometimes advisable to have your traffic ticket transferred to Superior Court. That decision is a complex one. To make the right decision requires an understanding of the local judges, and where you are most likely to get the best break, a realistic assessment of the strength of the prosecutor’s case, and the impact of a guilty plea or conviction on establishing criminal or civil liability. You need a skilled, and experienced lawyer to guide you through this important decision.
