Traffic Tickets

After receiving a traffic ticket, you do not just have to pay it and accept the consequences. With the assistance of a qualified attorney at Sarfan & Nachman, LLC, you can fight for your rights and pursue an alternate resolution to the matter. Our lawyers have over 100 years of combined knowledge and resources to help you with numerous citations that law enforcement can issue. Some of the types of tickets that we handle are:

  • Reckless Driving
  • Speeding
  • Disobeying red lights
  • Driving as an habitual offender
  • Failure to yield
  • Fleeing the scene of an accident
  • Hit and run
  • Driving on a suspended license

Traffic tickets can result in increased auto insurance premiums, loss of driver’s license, points on your license, jail time and/or fines, and severe new civil remedial fees. It may be possible to get your ticket dismissed and avoid these consequences. In situations where the ticket cannot be dismissed, our attorneys work hard to have the charges reduced or seek minimal punishments imposed on our clients.
