Maryland Traffic Violations Lawyer
Traffic violations range from minor mishaps that may cost you a few hundred dollars in fines to major offenses that may lead to imprisonment or revoked license. But even if you are stopped for something as trivial as speeding, being cited by a police officer means a blemish on your driving record and a potential increase in insurance rates in the future. That’s why it’s worth getting in touch with your trusted Baltimore traffic violations lawyer if you get cited or arrested, and DRA e-Law is happy to help.

If you are convicted of a vehicle-related law violation in Maryland, the court notifies the MVA, which in turn applies points to your driving record. After a certain point threshold is reached, you may receive a warning letter (3-4 points), a letter requiring you to enroll in a Driver Improvement Program (5-7 points), a notice of suspension (8-11 points) or a notice of revocation (12+ points). If you receive any of these notices, you have the right to request a hearing and have DRA e-Law defend you as your Maryland traffic violations attorney.
Sometimes, it might seem easier just to pay the fine, but keep in mind that paying the fine means you accept the conviction, so this goes on your driving record. If a clean driving record is one of the conditions of your employment, then you might be losing more than money by letting a citation go undisputed.
