Even the most cautious driver can end up getting a traffic ticket, but many of those cited fail to fight for their rights. If you’re charged with a traffic violation, you should seek the help of a legal team who understands that seemingly minor infractions can still have serious consequences. At the Longmont law firm of Flanders, Elsberg, Herber & Dunn, LLC, we defend clients accused of all traffic infractions and offenses, from fighting speeding tickets to charges of vehicular homicide. Our firm has protected the rights of Colorado citizens since 1871. We are proud to continue that tradition while breaking new ground in defending our clients.
Colorado divides motor vehicle violations into two main classes: traffic infractions and traffic offenses. Each category includes a variety of violations, with penalties that vary drastically. No matter what kind of traffic violation you are charged with, we have both the skills and experience to defend you.
Traffic offenses are more serious traffic violations. A traffic offense is a criminal case and may carry either misdemeanor or felony charges. Offenses carrying misdemeanor penalties include:
Depending on what you are charged with, you could be facing Class 1 or Class 2 misdemeanor charges. Class 2 charges can bring a jail sentence of up to 90 days, along with fines. Class 1 charges can result in up to one year in jail.
If you are charged with a felony traffic offense, the most serious type of traffic violation, you have likely been arrested. Motor vehicle felonies are charged for:
Felony traffic offenses can result in large fines, license suspensions and even prison time. Our Boulder County defense attorneys work to present a formidable defense on your behalf. We advise you of all of your options, including potential plea deals, and are fully prepared to represent you at trial.
