Winter Haven Traffic Ticket Attorney Aids Drivers Accused of Criminal and Civil Traffic Violations

FLORIDA LAWYER, WITH MORE THAN 30 YEARS EXPERIENCE, HELPS MOTORISTS WHO HAVE BEEN CHARGED WITH CRIMINAL TRAFFIC VIOLATIONS AND CIVIL TRAFFIC INFRACTIONS

You may not fully understand your options when charged with a criminal or civil traffic offense. Convictions can be costly – and can lead to license suspensions or higher insurance premiums. You can consult with an experienced attorney, who can help you understand the potential penalties, consequences and available defenses. Diane Buerger, a traffic violations attorney in Winter Haven, gives clients knowledgeable counseling on all types of traffic violations – both criminal and civil. Attorney Buerger has more than 30 years of experience handling these cases. We will take the time to evaluate the facts of your traffic stop and explain your legal options.

Proven firm represents clients in Polk, Highlands and Hardee Counties

Whatever type of traffic ticket you receive, we’ll help you to know your rights and work to limit sanctions which may include license points, fines, or in criminal cases, jail or imprisonment:

  • License suspended — Driving while your license is suspended or revoked is often a criminal charge. We understand how important it is to be able to drive – especially in rural parts of Polk, Highlands, and Hardee counties. We’ll fight for a fair resolution that gives you the opportunity to keep, or restore, your privileges as quickly as possible.
  • Reckless driving — Florida law defines reckless driving as operating a vehicle with a “willful or wanton disregard for safety.” That subjective standard gives authorities and juries significant leeway. A conviction can result in jail time and other penalties and sanctions. Let us help.
  • Speeding — Even driving 10 miles per hour over the speed limit can cost you a lot. If you’ve been cited for going at least 30 miles per hour over the limit, you face a mandatory court hearing and harsher fines. We will make every effort to get you the best possible outcome.

Don’t hesitate to gain an informed perspective on your situation. Our firm offers a free initial consultation to help you get started.

DEDICATED ADVOCATE ADVISES FLORIDIANS ON DUI CHARGES

If you’ve been arrested in connection with a driving under the influence allegation, we’ll get to work immediately to determine if proper law enforcement procedure was followed. In most cases, legal intoxication is defined as a blood alcohol concentration of at least .08 percent, but effective defenses may exist even if your breathalyzer reading exceeds that level. We will also investigate the circumstances leading to your vehicle stop and arrest to see if officers exceeded their authority.

We can also help if you were charged with possession and need a Winter Haven drug crimes attorney.

HIT-AND-RUN AND FLEEING TO ELUDE ALLEGATIONS CAN HAVE SERIOUS CONSEQUENCES

Leaving the scene of an accident with an injury is a felony under Florida law; and a conviction could land you in prison. The penalty is even more severe if the collision resulted in a fatality. Depending on the facts, you could be charged with either a felony or misdemeanor for fleeing to elude. But just because you’re charged, doesn’t mean you’re guilty. We’ll look into the facts and search for a way to show what happened. Whether you decide to plea bargain or go to trial, we’ll work to develop and present the case in a truthful and persuasive manner.
