Experienced Defense Against Traffic Violations
No matter how good of a driver you are, sometimes we do things while behind the wheel that leads to a ticket. Whether you rolled a stop sign or were speeding, you need a defense lawyer by your side who can help you deal with these tickets. Driving tickets can be serious, and if not handled they can add up and lead to more serious problems.
At Dougherty Tobias Iszard, Northern Virginia Law, P.C., we want to make sure your rights are protected throughout the entire legal process, including during the stop. We have the experience necessary to build you a strong defense for any traffic violation.
Common Types Of Traffic Violations
There is a wide variety of reasons a police officer may pull someone over. Our attorneys can defend you against violations such as:
- Failure to completely stop at a red light or stop sign
- Excessive speeding
- Driving with a taillight or headlight out
- Running a red light, stop sign or yield sign
- Following too closely
- Reckless driving
- Driving while license is suspended or revoked
If you pay the ticket, you are pleading guilty. If you believe you received an unfair ticket, it is important you contact a lawyer to discuss your options before you go to traffic court.
Appealing A Traffic Ticket
When you are pulled over, the officer will give you the reasons for the stop and issue you a ticket. Once you receive the ticket you have the option to fight it in traffic court. Our lawyers will listen to your side of the story and investigate whether the stop was legal and if the infraction was committed.
Do not pay your ticket immediately and admit guilt. Get a lawyer who will be in your corner from the beginning and will defend your rights in and out of court.
We also work with people who live out of state, but have received a ticket in Virginia.
