Defending Clients Charged With Speeding Tickets And Other Traffic Violations

Many traffic infractions may seem like minor issues that do not require the help of traffic attorneys. But in fact, moving violations are criminal charges, and while they do range in severity, a traffic violation conviction can lead to serious penalties. Typical penalties for traffic crimes can include any or all of the following:

  • Points charged to your license
  • Hefty fines
  • Temporary suspension or extended loss of your license
  • Jail or prison sentence
  • Mandatory driving school or other educational program
  • Mandatory drug or alcohol treatment program (for DUI crimes)

At the Stover Law Group, William H. Stover is an experienced Nashville lawyer who understands how important it is for you to maintain your driving privileges. When you face consequences for a traffic crime, he’ll fight tenaciously to minimize penalties such as suspensions or restrictions to your driver’s license and to keep your status as a driver in good standing.

Criminal Traffic Cases He Handles

William H. Stover uses advanced and expansive defense methods when representing clients in all types of criminal cases. He represents individual drivers as well as commercial truck drivers with CDL licenses, and is well-versed in the increased requirements for commercial drivers (such as a legal limit of .04 BAC for truck drivers in DUI cases). In Tennessee, there are many moving and nonmoving traffic violations that could lead to a citation (ticket) or arrest and a subsequent criminal charge. He handles all these matters, that include the following:

  • Driving with a suspended or expired license
  • DUI/driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs
  • Driving carelessly
  • Failing to stop at a stop light or stop sign
  • Failing to yield right of way
  • Failing to follow other traffic signage
  • Hit-and-run/fleeing the scene of an accident
  • Reckless driving
  • Careless driving
  • Speeding
  • Speeding in a school zone or other restricted area
  • Street racing
  • Parking in an illegal zone such as in front of a fire hydrant or in a space designated for handicapped drivers

If you receive a citation for speeding or another traffic infraction, you may just assume it’s in your best interest to pay the ticket and move on. But just paying a ticket is an admission of guilt that can have an impact on your insurance premiums and result in points deducted from your license. Attorneys tend to recommend that clients dispute their citations, and William H. Stover is an adept litigator who can help you win or avoid serious penalties.
