Traffic Lawyers in Gainesville, FL
Have You Received a Speeding Ticket or Been Cited for Other Traffic-Related Violations?
If so, you may benefit from speaking with an attorney prior to taking other actions. Although paying the fine for a traffic citation may appear to be the easiest solution, it may not be in your best interest. Points against your Florida driver's license can add up quickly, and a blemished driving record may result in auto insurance premium surcharges that can last for years. If you receive multiple tickets within a certain time frame, you could lose your driver’s license. Receiving a traffic ticket does not mean that you are guilty of the offense, but submitting payment does. Fighting your ticket is the only way that it can be dismissed. To protect your interests, it is important to seek legal counsel in a timely manner.
Our experienced traffic attorney in Gainesville can help you if you find yourself in a tricky situation with the law. We know about all the applicable state and municipality laws, understand how to navigate the legal system, can provide strategic guidance for defending yourself against the charge, and work with prosecutors to reach an agreement on a plea bargain or sentence reduction.
At The Law Offices of Edwards & Jones, our traffic defense lawyers have successfully represented clients for a broad range of violations such as:

Deferred Adjudication | Traffic Safety Training
For certain infractions, you may opt for a deferred adjudication where you can complete a driving safety course prior to your court date. If eligible, you will have to pay certain administrative fees to attend training. However, with the successful completion of the program, you may avoid having to pay the fine as well as accumulating additional points against your license. If you believe you were driving safely at the time your ticket was issued or that you were unreasonably cited for a moving violation, our defense attorneys may be able to have the case dismissed or plead down the violation to protect your driving record.
