Diligently Protecting Your Driving Privileges—Arizona Traffic Tickets Lawyer

While many drivers who are pulled over and issued a traffic citation simply pay the fine and plead no contest, this is not always the best option.  There are a great number of occupations where traffic violations, even mere infractions, may impede your ability to get a job.  If you wish to obtain a job in law enforcement or driving a tractor-trailer, bus or any other type of job where a clean driving record is relevant, it is important that you obtain an experienced Arizona traffic ticket defense attorney to help you avoid damaging your future.  Even if you have no desire to pursue a career that involves driving, some traffic related offenses are misdemeanors, which means they constitute a criminal conviction.  A misdemeanor conviction has a far-reaching impact on many jobs and professions, immigration rights and privileges as well as other potential negative impacts.

Dianne Sullivan is an experienced Arizona traffic ticket defense attorney who honed her skills as a hard-nosed prosecutor.  Many times Ms. Sullivan is able to obtain a dismissal of your ticket after reviewing the discovery packet containing the evidence against you and exposing the weaknesses in the case.  If you are charged with a misdemeanor, such as driving without a license, Ms. Sullivan may be able to get the charge reduced to an infraction so that you do not suffer a criminal conviction.  If you have a number of prior traffic convictions so that your driver’s license is at risk, Ms. Sullivan will aggressively fight to protect your driving privileges.

There are a number of serious traffic violations that are not mere infractions and constitute criminal misdemeanors.  A misdemeanor conviction may result in county jail time, substantial fines, suspension or revocation of your driver’s license, probation, community service, court ordered classes or counseling and other adverse consequences.  It is imperative that if you receive a traffic ticket that constitutes a misdemeanor you obtain legal advice from an experienced Arizona traffic ticket lawyer.  Common examples of serious traffic offenses that may constitute a misdemeanor and require services of an attorney include the following:

  • Reckless driving
  • Driving without a license
  • Driving on a suspended license
  • Open container

If you are charged with a serious traffic violation of this nature that constitutes a misdemeanor, you should never speak to the police or the prosecutor prior to obtaining legal advice from someone at our knowledgeable Arizona traffic violation law firm.  There are other common traffic violations that may be problematic if you need a clean driving record, including the following common examples:

  • Car seat violations
  • Speeding
  • Running red lights and stop signs
  • Right-of-way violations
  • Seatbelts tickets
  • No insurance
  • Improper turns

Ms. Sullivan has handled hundreds of criminal cases throughout Maricopa County, ranging from minor traffic offenses to major felonies. If you have been arrested and charged with a traffic violation, Ms. Sullivan will seek to have the ticket dismissed, challenge the evidence at trial or negotiate a substantial reduction in the offense to avoid a criminal conviction and other negative impacts on your life.
