Traffic Ticket Defense

Traffic Ticket Defense Attorney in Warren, Ohio

After receiving a traffic ticket, most people's instinct is to pay the fine. However, this erases any chance to defend your driving record, hold down insurance rates, and lessen the risk of greater penalties down the line. The decision to contact a proven lawyer for traffic ticket defense is often well worth it.

We represent people facing a full range of relatively minor and more serious traffic violations, including:

  • Driving without a valid driver's license, including driving under suspension
  • Speeding
  • Reckless driving
  • Leaving the scene of an accident
  • OVI, sometimes called DUI
  • Vehicular assault

Solid Legal Representation for Travelers Ticketed in Ohio

In addition to serving local Ohioans, our law office capably handles traffic ticket defense for travelers cited on I-80, the Ohio Turnpike and other area roadways. We appear frequently in the Newton Falls Municipal Court and other courts throughout the Youngstown, Ohio, region. Our representation may be especially valuable if:

  • You are not guilty or have reason to question the charge against you
  • Driving is the main aspect of your work, as for interstate truck drivers and others required to have a commercial driver's license (CDL)
  • You drive frequently for work — as a salesperson, for example — and thus have a strong incentive to keep your driving record clean

Defending Your Driving Record and Your Legal Rights

Can you handle your own Northeast Ohio traffic ticket defense? It is possible to get a better outcome this way than by pleading guilty, but it will likely require you to make several court appearances, and you may even have to go to trial. When you retain Mr. Ziegler, he will be:

  • Submitting a persuasively written, properly formatted not-guilty plea
  • Making court appearances on your behalf, including a pretrial hearing where we will negotiate to resolve your case favorably

We know what actions can help your case in the eyes of prosecutors and judges. An excellent example is resolving other outstanding legal matters and meeting requirements to have your license reinstated. Without legal counsel, navigating these processes can be very challenging. When you contact us, you have a dependable guide and resource focused on what is important to you.
