What can a lawyer do for me?
Avoid Increased Insurance Rates
When considering hiring a lawyer, people often ask themselves if it makes sense financially. Hiring a lawyer certainly involves upfront costs, but is this a worthwhile investment?
Prevent License Points
In Michigan, points are assessed to driving records based on the nature of the violation. For example:
- Reckless driving – 6 points
- Speeding 16 mph or more over the limit violation – 4 points
- Careless driving—3 points
- Speeding between 11-15 mph over the limit violation – 3 points
- Speeding up to 10 mph over the limit violations – 2 points
- Driving with an open container of alcohol—2 points
When an individual accumulates too many points, the Secretary of State may choose to impose penalties, which can include a license suspension.
Our firm fights for dismissals and reductions. We work with the courts, the prosecutors and the police officers who issued you a citation to amend citations down to lower, non-moving, no points violations. Contact Macomb Criminal Lawyers today to help!
