Ohio Traffic Defense Attorney Serving Cincinnati, Ohio & Covington, Kentucky
Giving Clients Options when Defending Against Ohio Traffic Violations
Ohio is known as one of the top states in the country for initiating traffic tickets. Unfortunately, approximately 95% of people who are cited make the mistake of just paying the ticket. That could be a big mistake: If your employment centers on driving, you could actually lose your job, or you could see your insurance rates go up significantly.

Don't Take Chances with Your Future — Protect Yourself with An Attorney
The ultimate goal is to keep your driving record clean. Frankly, when it comes to non-criminal traffic tickets, a non-moving plea (e.g. non-working taillight) or a zero point speed plea is often the best option because the cost of the trial isn't worth the expense when the plea will keep your driving record clean.
The obvious traffic charges that are actually criminal and could include jail time are OVI/DUI, leaving the scene of an accident and driving on a suspended license.
You also need to keep in mind there are some jurisdictions that just won't negotiate traffic tickets. I have experience working all over the State of Ohio, and I know which jurisdictions will negotiate and which ones won't. I won't waste your money trying to get a ticket amended if it's not an option in your jurisdiction. Of course, I am always happy to take a case to trial after reviewing all the favorable facts for your case.
A Lawyer Can Minimize the Charges and Protect You from Unnecessary Consequences
I know firsthand the stress and frustration of a traffic violation. I understand that no matter who you are, your driving privileges are essential to maintaining your personal and professional obligations. Whether you're a truck driver trying to hold onto your commercial driver's license (CDL) or a parent who needs to drop the kids at school and drive to work, I will use my experience and skill to protect you against the following charges:
Driving without an operator's license
Seat belt and child restraint violations
Illegal vehicle modifications
Driving under the influence of drugs
Leaving the scene of an accident or hit-and-run
Running a stop sign or red light
Vehicle equipment and mechanical violations
No matter the charges, you should never ignore or simply accept them. Even if you have unresolved tickets from years ago, I can negotiate with the Bureau of Motor Vehicles on your behalf.
You Can't Ignore Something That Never Goes Away
The police and the government can be overzealous in their enforcement of traffic laws. Don't get pushed around or simply accept the charges against you. Contact my law office by calling us or by completing an online contact form. I will respond to after-hours calls and can make jail visits if needed.
