You aren’t going to jail. But that doesn’t mean your speeding ticket or traffic ticket isn’t serious. Your rights are always important. The criminal defense attorneys at Meyer Van Severen, S.C. defend traffic citations. If you want a trial on a traffic matter, hiring one of Milwaukee’s top criminal defense attorneys is always a good idea.
Even if you don’t want a trial, hiring a criminal lawyer can bring better results. Often your criminal attorney can negotiate for a lower fine or fewer demerit points. This can be especially important for an individual who has recently been pulled over for another matter and wants to avoid the points piling up. Avoiding these consequences and others, such as increased insurance rates, or the potential loss of one’s driver license, are all important.
Going to trial and taking a plea aren’t the only two options. Police still need a reason to stop you. Faulty equipment, lying police officers, and numerous other scenarios bring the possibility of getting your traffic citation thrown out entirely. We’re comfortable arguing for your rights in court. Our defense attorneys regularly file motions in court and argue that evidence should be suppressed for use at trial. The police must have probable cause or reasonable suspicion to subject you to stops and searches. If they don’t satisfy the appropriate standard, filing a motion could result in your victory.
