Denver Traffic Ticket Lawyer/Attorney Representation
Many individuals who have been issued a traffic ticket do not need the assistance of a traffic attorney. For most minor offenses resulting in 4 points or less, such as 4 point speeding, it is advisable to first see what the prosecuting attorney will offer as a plea bargain. If the prosecutor’s offer is inadequate, Traffic Violations Lawyer Philip M Smith can take on your defense and pursue a more favorable outcome.
When defending against traffic tickets, I work to minimize the point assessment and impact that a traffic ticket conviction may have. I challenge the officer’s determination of probable cause and other evidence, analyze the case, and counsel my client on how to move forward.
