Receiving a traffic citation is one of the most straightforward interactions you’ll likely have with law enforcement. If they see you run a red light, they’ll pull you over, issue you a ticket, and send you on your way. Many people believe that the best way to resolve a traffic ticket is to simply pay the fine, but there are many reasons why you should instead retain a traffic attorney. The Orlando traffic lawyers at The Umansky Law Firm are prepared to offer you favorable alternatives and can represent you in a court of law for anything from a speeding ticket to driving with a suspended license.
Like many drivers, you may be uncertain of your rights when you receive a traffic ticket. Most drivers simply pay the fines without knowing that they are receiving points on their driver’s license that may carry long-term consequences. In some cases, you may go to court and face a driver’s license suspension and criminal charges! However, it is possible to fight your ticket, no matter how small they may seem. You have a right to protect yourself and your future.
If you’ve received a traffic citation or a parking ticket, one of our attorneys can appear for you at a hearing and challenge the law enforcement officer to prove the infraction beyond a reasonable doubt. This allows your daily routine to go uninterrupted as we represent you in court and fight to lessen penalties. We can minimize the damage to your driving record by requesting that no points be assessed by the court. In certain circumstances, we may be able to get the court to allow you to take a driving school option when you are ineligible by statute, either due to a recent driving school election or because the maximum school allowance has been surpassed.
We work tirelessly to prevent driver’s license suspension, to mitigate any additional points on your record, and to protect your driving privileges. Our defense attorneys represent local residents who have been cited for a range of moving and nonmoving traffic offenses.
As the operator of a motor vehicle in Central Florida, there is a possibility that you’ve received either a moving or nonmoving citation. While they’re both seen as traffic violations in the eyes of the law, they have stark contrasts. The main difference between the two is that moving violations are those that involve a driver breaking a road rule while the vehicle is in motion and nonmoving violations have to do more so with parking and paperwork.
Some of the most common moving violations include:

You may also want to consider the traffic violations in connection with riding a motorcycle and while driving a commercial vehicle.
