The criminal traffic defense attorneys at Carter & Putnam have literally handled thousands of traffic violations. Traffic tickets are, at a minimum an inconvenience. A traffic lawyer can help preserve your driving record. The penalties range from minor violations which may result in 1 or 2 points being assessed against your driving record to quite serious violations, which can under some circumstances, cost you your driver’s license and could lead to a jail or prison sentence. Even the minor point violations can lead to increased insurance premiums that may cost you a substantial amount of money over the next several years.

You can save yourself a substantial amount of money over the next few years by hiring a criminal defense traffic lawyer to assist in keeping some or all of the points off your driving record. This stops your insurance company from raising your rates because of the tickets.

On more serious charges like DWI (Driving while Intoxicated), DUI (Driving under the Influence) and DWS (Driving while Suspended or Revoked) you will want to obtain an experienced traffic defense attorney at the earliest possible time. These charges have serious consequences which can often be avoided.
