Florida Moving Violations and Traffic Tickets

CIVIL TRAFFIC TICKETS AS LOW AS $199.00! 

Like many other states, Florida assigns point values to traffic tickets, and suspends a driver's license if the total points accumulated for a series of violations exceed a given number over a given period. License suspension is required for 12 points in 12 months (30-day suspension), 18 points in 18 months (90-day suspension), or 24 points in 36 months (one year suspension). If you need help in contesting a traffic ticket, or if your violations over the last year expose you to the risk of license suspension if you get pulled over again at any time soon, contact the Jacksonville traffic violation attorneys at the Law Offices of Ronald E. Sholes.  We represent indivuals facing traffic citations or charges throughout the Jacksonville Area, as well as St. Augustine, Fernandina, Orange Park, Midleburg, Starke, Macclenney, and Gainesville, including all other cities located in Duval County, Nassau County, St. Johns County, Bradford County, Baker County, Alachua County, and Clay County, Florida.

We represent drivers facing traffic violations such as the following:

  • Speeding
  • Failure to yield
  • Racing 
  • Parking on a highway outside a municipality
  • Leaving the scene of an accident
  • Reckless driving
  • Child restraint violations
  • Drunk driving
  • Fleeing and Eluding Police 
  • Open container
  • Passing a stopped school bus

DON'T JUST PAY the FINE! AVOID POINTS! 

Simply paying the stated fine on the ticket amounts to a plea of guilty on the offense charged and not only accumulates points toward suspension of your license, it also can result in substantial increases in your insurance premiums. In nearly all cases, we can avoid points on your license!  Our attorneys will go to court on your behalf and argue for a "withhold of adjudication" so that you will not have points assesed against your license!  Or, if you want to fight the citation outright, we can discuss that option as well.  Of course, our fee depends on whether or not you want a trial on the ticket, and what your past driving history looks like.  We will examine your overall driving record and fight vigorously for the court to withhold the points from your license! 

OUT OF STATE MOTORIST? NO PROBLEM!

We also represent out-of-state motorists and commercial drivers who cannot afford the risk of a license suspension. In many cases, we can represent you in court on the violations without the need for you to make a personal appearance. If your license has been suspended, we can also represent you before the DMV to challenge the validity or point scores of particular traffic violations, or where necessary, negotiate the restoration of your right to drive.

LICENSE SUSPENDED? WE MAY BE ABLE TO HELP! 

If you have suffered a driver's license suspension we may be able to help!  Whether your suspension is due to points or infractions such as Driving While your License is Suspended or Revoked (DWLS/R), we will carefully review your driving record and file appropriate motions or petitions with the court to attempt to have tickets or charges set aside so that your case or cases may be re-opened, and then, renegotiated for possibly a better disposition!  A disposition that will not result in a suspension, or that will help overturn your suspension.

Criminal Traffic Citations 

We also represent individuals with criminal tickets, such as DWLS/R, Reckless driving, Racing, DUI, Fleeing and Eluding the police, and others.  these type of tickets carry possible terms of incarceration and should be taken seriously! We know Traffic Defense, and we believe that our firm will give you the best possible chance at beating your criminal traffic offense.
