Traffic Tickets

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. Receiving a traffic ticket does not mean that you are guilty of the offense, submitting payment does. To protect your interests, it is important to seek legal counsel in a timely manner.

At The Law Offices of Edwards & Jones, our traffic defense lawyers have successfully represented clients for a broad range of violations such as:

  • Speeding Tickets
  • Red Light Violation
  • Suspended Driver's License
  • Running a Stop Sign
  • No "Car Insurance"
  • Passing a School Bus
  • Speeding in a School Zone
  • Ordinance Violations
  • Warrant Roundup
  • Failure to Appear in Court

Deferred Ajudication | 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.

Mr.Jones went beyond needed services as a lawyer to help me with my very in depth case. Very helpful throughout the whole 6-7 month process.

Thank you for all your hard work!

I hired Mr. Jones to represent my son. We had never had to hire a lawyer and I was anxious. Mr. Jones took the time to explain what was happening and it helped lessen my concerns. Once we hired him he started work immediately and was able to get my son's case thrown out. We are very satisfied with his services. Robert H.
★★★★★
I hired Christopher for situation I got myself in. He worked hard to get my case dropped. I definitely would recommend this attorney to anyone needing one. He puts his heart in his work. Roy M.
★★★★★
I had the pleasure of having Mr. Edwards represent me in 2006. While I was charged with a crime, Mr Edwards insisted sternly that he was very confident he could successfully defend the charges against me. This man exudes confidence. It is my opinion that he is clearly one of the best lawyers in the city of Gainesville. You can't go wrong with Mr. Edwards!!! Everette Sr.
★★★★★
We are from Lake City, Florida. As parents, we sought the help of Mr. Edwards in my daughter's behalf. As a young lady, she had acquired multiple felonies with the prospect of 10-15 years in prison facing her. Mr. Edwards heard our case, took it on with confidence, and got her sentence reduced to 10 years probation, and restitution. That was 8 years ago, and my daughter is married, has a son, and is doing great. She hasn't even had a traffic violation. Because Mr. Edwards believed in us and took a chance, we will be forever be in his debt. He is a great lawyer, with a very big heart. Colin
