Most drivers have experienced that feeling of dread when, as they are traveling down the road, the spinning lights of a trailing police car signal them to pull over.

Why Do I Need a Virginia Traffic Attorney?
Many individuals have handled a speeding ticket or other minor infraction on their own. Often, they simply pay the fine, whether they agree with the charge or not, just to be able to move on. In cases of more serious charges, such as DUI or reckless driving, the severe consequences often prompt individuals to hire an attorney. However, even seemingly minor offenses can lead to serious legal and personal repercussions. Traffic citations and violations can dictate harsh consequences, including:
- Points on the license
- Loss of driving privileges
- Jail time
- Increased insurance premiums
Once imposed, these repercussions take time to work through and remove. They can be lasting sources of financial strain, embarrassment, and frustration. It is best to mitigate or even avoid them from the start, a goal the experienced traffic lawyers at Greenspun Shapiro PC work hard to help every client obtain.
Additionally, while it is possible to manage a straightforward case on your own, only an experienced lawyer can know and understand all the nuances of local traffic law. Our team understands what it takes to be successful in these cases, and we have years of experience vigorously representing our clients before the court to state a comprehensive, effective case. Many common excuses for traffic violations, including traffic factors and police behavior, are ineffective in court. Our lawyers know specifically how to interpret the law in different cases to give you the best chance of a successful outcome.
