Michigan Traffic Violations
While you can generally not afford to be without a driver’s license, it is not uncommon to have your driver’s license suspended or revoked due to a bad driving record, past criminal conviction or failure to pay previous court costs or driver’s responsibility fees. In these situations, the Friedman Law Firm can be invaluable as we know how to help restore your license, obtain a restricted driver’s license, and lessen the penalties and consequences due to poor driving. This type of legal assistance often pays for itself – we work to eliminate the inevitable increase in your insurance and the high cost of court fees.
When Do You Need a Michigan Traffic Lawyer?
A seasoned Michigan criminal defense lawyer is often the best choice when you need assistance with a traffic ticket. As an experienced criminal defense attorney is frequently in court and constantly dealing with prosecutors, this familiarity with the system and key players is what you need to ensure that you get the best result possible.
If you have received a ticket for a traffic violation in Michigan, it is easy to ignore and not address immediately, especially if you have other commitments or financial obligations. Perhaps you may not have a problem paying the fines in full and on time, but any points that you accrue on your driver’s license record that could cause you a problem with your job and certainly increase your insurance premiums. Be careful not to become lured into thinking, “it’s just a traffic ticket”, which then causes you to disregard and forget the ticket completely. Be certain that even minor traffic tickets can end up causing major problems, especially if deadlines are missed or if there is a history of other traffic violations. Pay attention to ticket resolution deadlines, or you may receive a loss of driving privileges, additional penalties; maybe even end up being ordered time in jail. Without a Michigan Traffic Lawyer, a simple traffic ticket infraction could easily turn into a misdemeanor.
The extent of the initial traffic ticket penalties may vary according to the circumstances of your individual situation, but the outcome will certainly be influenced by quality of your Traffic Lawyer (or lack of). If you have a traffic violation in the metropolitan Detroit area, especially in Royal Oak, Berkley, Ferndale, Madison Heights, or anywhere else, don’t settle for less than an experienced Michigan traffic violation lawyer of Friedman Law Firm.

A driver’s license may be revoked when it is determined that the driver does not possess the physical, mental or other qualifications required to safely operate a motor vehicle. However, even if the driver’s license has been suspended or revoked due an accumulation of driver’s license points or criminal charges such as multiple drunk driving convictions, there is still hope.

If your license has been suspended, that means that a time period has been defined with “from” and “through” dates, during which driving is not allowed at all. The duration of the suspension depends on the specifics of the offense. Application to the Department of Motor Vehicles for reinstatement is not allowed for a minimum of one year following the “through” date.
