Motor Vehicle Violations Can Affect Your Driving Record

Don't take traffic violations lightly. Even a ticket for speeding or reckless driving in Maryland can cost you a lot of money in increased insurance premiums. Too many violations in a year can cost you your license, too. For more serious charges such as driving under the influence (DUI), you can face jail, heavy fines and lose your driving privileges for up to a year.

Seeking solid legal advice is necessary after a drunk driving charge or another motor vehicle citation. An experienced criminal defense can help. The law firm of Thomas V. Mike Miller, Jr., P.A., is backed by more than 50 years of experience in criminal defense. We represent clients in Southern Maryland and Washington, D.C., through our offices in Clinton and Dunkirk. Our attorneys are aggressive, and will stand up for your rights throughout the duration of your case.

Fighting To Get Charges Dismissed Or Reduced

In Maryland, if convicted of a traffic violation, you will receive demerit points that stay on your record. If you accumulate enough demerit points, you could get your driver's license suspended or revoked. Here are some of the traffic violations that can affect your driving status:

  • Reckless driving
  • Speeding
  • Driving through a red light and failure to obey traffic signals
  • Driving without insurance
  • Driving with a suspended license
  • Negligent operation of a motor vehicle
  • All other moving or nonmoving traffic violations such as failure to yield

Our attorneys will defend our clients to the best of their ability in an effort to reduce fines and demerit points. In some cases, we have been able to have charges dismissed. We will advise you on the best available defense strategies for your situation.
