Maryland Traffic Offense Attorney

Serious traffic offenses can wreak havoc on your driving record, raise your insurance premiums, and may cause you to lose your driving privileges altogether.

In the state of Maryland, drivers are assigned “points” for serious traffic violations. The more significant the violation, the higher the point value will be for that particular offense. During each two-year period, you are allowed to accumulate only so many points against your license before your license is suspended or revoked by the state.

What are considered Serious Traffic Offenses in Maryland?

Violations that are considered serious can include:

  • Hit and run violations
  • Theft or unauthorized use of a vehicle
  • Reckless or negligent driving
  • Vehicular homicide or assault
  • Speeding excessively
  • Failing to stop for a school bus
  • Racing
  • Fleeing or eluding a law enforcement officer
  • Driving without a license
  • Driving with no insurance
  • Driving with a suspended or revoked license

Not only will the above offenses accumulate points against your license quickly, there may be a possibility of jail time, fines and other penalties associated with each.

When You Need Seasoned Legal Representation…

Regardless of what type of traffic violation you are facing, it is crucial that you obtained expert legal representation as quickly as possible. An attorney who is well-versed in Maryland traffic offense laws can help you move through the various administrative proceedings, such as requesting a hearing with the Maryland DMV, and can also defend you against criminal charges should they apply.

As a citizen of the United States, you have the right to consult with an attorney as soon as you are charged, even before speaking to law enforcement. It is in your best interest to exercise these rights as soon as possible, and request counsel immediately following your citation or arrest.
