Speeding Tickets

Speeding Tickets:  Don't Just Accept the Consequences - Fight Back!

If you are wondering whether it is worthwhile fighting an Ohio speeding ticket, consider this: Under Ohio law, three or more moving violations in a year can result in a criminal charge that carries with it a potential jail sentence and driver's license suspension. Ask yourself whether you really want to take that risk.
Geoffrey R. Smith, Attorney at Law, has over 30 years' experience defending people against speeding tickets issued in Ohio. He will leverage his years of experience and focus his legal skills on helping you keep your driving record clean, your car insurance premiums at a minimum and your driver's license in your wallet. He can also help you avoid unnecessary financial and legal implications associated with a traffic violation. Indeed, he will take every measure possible to limit the fallout from your speeding ticket.

Speeding Tickets Can Have Serious Ramifications in Ohio

Ohio applies a point system for traffic violations. If you speed 10 to 30 mph over the limit, two points will likely be applied against your driving record. Four points could be applied if you drive 30 mph or more over the speeding limit. The more violations you incur, the more points will be applied against your driving record. Your driver's license could be suspended if you accumulate 12 or more points in two years.
You may be tempted to handle your speeding ticket on your own. Unfortunately, if you pay a speeding ticket without confirming proof of insurance, your driver's license could be suspended. Avoid any unnecessary ramifications with the help of Geoffrey R. Smith, Attorney at Law. He have a firm understanding of how traffic violations are handled in Ohio and is committed to helping you secure your driving privileges.
To Parents Of Young Drivers: 

If your teenager has received a speeding ticket, it is important to do everything you can to keep the violation off his or her driving record. In most cases, you are probably covering your son or daughter on your auto insurance policy. Premiums for teenagers are high enough without a moving violation on the report. Successfully fighting the ticket can mean saving you substantial money now and avoiding the risk of premium rates for your child when he or she leaves home.

If you are a professional driver in Ohio, Geoffrey R. Smith, Attorney at Law, understands that a speeding ticket can threaten your livelihood.
