Safeguard Your Record
You don’t have to plead guilty to initial charges even if you think you may have violated the law. Our criminal attorneys are often successful in convincing municipal prosecutors to amend charges to a less serious charge, such as a non-criminal local ordinance violation. In other words, we have often been able to negotiate pleas to ordinances that are not considered crimes or criminal acts that would appear on your record.
The same principal of plea negotiations applies to traffic charges. We can work with the municipal prosecutor to amend a traffic ticket to a non-point or reduced point traffic offense or an offense that does not affect your driver’s license. A common example of how we help in traffic cases is where our client has been issued a summons for careless driving, reckless driving, or speeding. Here, we are usually able to convince the prosecutor to offer a plea to unsafe driving, which is a no point traffic infraction that carries only a fine.
With over 35 years of criminal trial experience, our lawyers have handled literally thousands of these types of traffic offenses and criminal charges. In cases where our clients have been innocent, we have gone to trial and won. At times we have been able to avoid trial by demonstrating our client’s innocence to the prosecutor after having investigated the case, reviewed the police reports, and interviewed the witnesses and police officers. Another common approach we have utilized with much success is to conduct a hearing and seek suppression of the State’s evidence which was unlawfully obtained after an unconstitutional search by the police.
