Defending Pennsylvania Drivers For More Than 65 Years
Traffic offenses can have unanticipated consequences, even if the charges seem to be minor. If you accrue too many traffic violations, you stand to lose your driving privileges – sometimes permanently. Serious charges can even result in jail time.
For assistance with a traffic-related charge, you can rely on our established criminal defense lawyers at O'Donnell, Weiss & Mattei, P.C. Since 1955, we have defended clients throughout southeastern Pennsylvania from charges such as:
- Reckless driving
- Driving without a license
- Driving under the influence of a controlled substance
- Distracted driving
- Homicide by vehicle
Because we have a robust criminal law practice, we can also assist you if your traffic charge coincides with another offense related to drugs, theft or other issues.
What Are Some Common Penalties?
The consequences for traffic convictions tend to increase in severity depending on how many previous offenses, if any, you have. Some of the punishments can include:
- Expensive fines
- Community service
- License suspension or revocation
- Points added to your license
- Installation of an ignition interlock device
- Jail time, in severe cases
We always prioritize getting you the lightest sentence possible. In many cases, we manage to get our clients’ charges reduced or dropped entirely. We can advise you on whether it is wisest to negotiate a plea bargain or go to court.
Take Traffic Offenses As Seriously As We Do
Do not underestimate the severity of civil traffic violations. Although tickets and fines might not seem serious at first, the more they pile up, the closer you come to losing your driving privileges. The state will not hesitate to suspend or revoke your license, which can put your career and your independence in jeopardy.
