When you have speeding tickets, you may be considering just paying the

K. S. Porter, P.A. can help. With extensive courtroom experience, we can

support the case for the defense.
Speeding Tickets and your Driver's License in Jacksonville
When convicted of a speeding offense, you will get points on your license;
if you have enough points, you may have a suspended license to deal with
as part of the punishment. You may want to consider defending your case
in court and seeking to have your case dismissed, a reduced charge or
an acquittal in court. In many cases, when the case actually comes to
court, the law enforcement officer involved may have little or no memory
of the incident, as they may be issuing many tickets on a daily or weekly
basis. A close cross-examination of the law enforcement officers involved
can often lead to a dismissed case, as they may remember little to none
of the incident upon cross examination.
When you have received a speeding ticket that was issued due to a SMD (speed
measuring device), it is possible to research the actual unit used to
determine if it had been properly calibrated, or even if the person who
maintains it is aware of the correct procedures to keep the unit in good
working condition. A serious speeding offense, or other
traffic offenses, when convicted, may affect your future employment when a potential employer
chooses to run a background check on you before hiring. Especially if
the prospective job involves driving for the company, they may easily
pass over you and choose another individual merely based on a driving
record, as they may consider you to be a risk. Avoiding a conviction is
an important matter, and we can help.
When a speeding violation includes an accident or accident with injury,
it becomes a very serious legal problem that demands a skilled criminal
defense lawyer in Jacksonville to assist in fighting the charge and help
you in seeking to avoid the punishment you could face if convicted.
