Traffic Violations

Everybody makes mistakes. At one point or another, nearly everyone gets a traffic ticket for a violation such as speeding or missing a stop sign. Some people find themselves facing more serious charges such as reckless driving or driving with a suspended license. While a traffic violation may seem minor, it is still wise to speak to an attorney before paying a fine, giving any kind of statement or accepting a deal from a prosecutor.

The infraction may have consequences that affect your record, driver's license and insurance, so consider speaking with a knowledgeable traffic violation defense lawyer like William Long Whitesell. Our firm has helped people in Valdosta, Georgia, Lowndes County and the surrounding communities minimize the negative consequences of traffic violations for over 10 years.

Out-Of-State Drivers

Our lead attorney, William Long Whitesell, has practiced law in Georgia and Florida since 2001, and he is very familiar with how prosecutors handle traffic matters in court. If you are from another state and have been ticketed for a traffic offense in Georgia or northern Florida, we can represent you locally. In most cases, you will not even have to return to the state.

It is essential to have an attorney who knows the law in the area where you were stopped. For example, Georgia's "Super Speeder" law allows the state to collect an additional fine if you exceed the speed limit by a certain amount, and speeding over a certain amount can result in more points on your license. Often, retaining an attorney is enough to convince a prosecutor to downgrade the offense and mitigate the consequences.

When you drive for a living, a simple infraction can make it difficult to secure and keep the job you want. We frequently represent commercial truck drivers, helping them protect their licenses and careers.
