Traffic violations are among the least-contested criminal acts in the country. Most people simply receive the summons, pay the ticket, attend a court session if the offense requires it and go on their way. However traffic violations are still crimes and paying a traffic fine amounts to pleading guilty to that crime. The consequences can impact your life just as any criminal conviction would. If you face criminal charges for a traffic violation in the state of Maryland, you owe it to yourself to at least investigate your legal options.

How our Montgomery and Prince George’s County traffic violation attorneys can help
Sometimes, police write tickets or summonses improperly. Or else there are obvious inconsistencies between the police report and the way the officer describes what happened. In some instances, the police officer fails to appear in court to defend the ticket.
In most cases, however, the police follow all necessary procedures, meaning it will require more effort on your part to defeat your charges. For more serious traffic violations, your case may require a full investigation by an attorney to gather evidence, interview witnesses and try to find holes in the prosecution. At DuBoff & Associates, Chartered, we have more than 50 years of combined experience as criminal defense attorneys in the state of Maryland and can help you fight any criminal charge, including incarcerable traffic offenses.
