Decatur Traffic Lawyers Helping You Fight Tickets in Decatur, GA

Paying traffic tickets may equal admitting guilt

Paying traffic tickets may seem to be an easy way to resolve a simple traffic violation, but responding to a traffic ticket without consulting a lawyer can bring serious consequences. James D. Michael, P.C. has 17 years of courtroom experience trying all types of criminal defense cases, including Decatur traffic tickets.

Depending on the severity of the violation and whether it is classified as moving or non-moving, traffic tickets can result in increased insurance premiums, expensive fines or even a criminal record. You must realize that payment of the ticket itself is an admission of guilt. If you have a history of traffic violations, you should seek advice from an Decatur traffic attorney with a solid background in the county’s criminal and traffic courts.

Serious traffic offenses covered

Georgia law classifies certain traffic offenses as more serious and, as a result, they carry the potential for heavier penalties such as higher fines, points and even jail time. Serious traffic offenses usually involve moving violations and include:

  • Hit and run
  • Fleeing or attempting to allude a police officer
  • Homicide by vehicle
  • Super speeder fine
  • Drag racing
  • DUI (driving under the influence)
  • Any felony involving a car

If you are faced with one of these charges, your smartest option is to seek legal counsel that is familiar with the courts.
