Why Do You Need A Lawyer To Resolve A Traffic Matter?

Were you tagged while travelling through Louisiana on business, leisure or when just driving around town. The I-10 corridor along with many streets within the city limits of Baton Rouge are closely patrolled. A traffic violation may even require a court appearance based on its severity.

If you do not reside in Louisiana, one of our attorneys can often resolve the issue on your behalf, saving you an unplanned return trip. At The Law Offices of Ossie Brown, we know how to resolve traffic offenses from speeding to failure to stop and more. Our lawyers can also minimize the impact on your commercial driver's license (CDL).

The Difference An Attorney Can Make

General penalties for traffic offenses are fines and license suspension or revocation. For a commercial driver, a suspension or revocation could take you off the road. If you fail to pay, a warrant for your arrest could be issued.

We can step in and often negotiate a favorable outcome. Our Baton Rouge attorneys can help, if you have been charged with:

  • Operating a vehicle without a driver's license or with a suspended driver's license
  • Speeding
  • Careless operation
  • Moving violations related to passing or school zones
  • Impaired driving

It is important for both residents and visitors to understand that if you chose to simply pay a ticket, your insurance rates will increase for the moving violation. Let us explain how we might be able to prevent this from happening.

You Have The Right To Challenge A Traffic Violation
