Traffic violations attorneys

The lawyers at Dozier Miller will help you choose the best course of action to protect your driving privileges and save you money.

When you’re faced with a traffic violation, pleading guilty and paying the fine may seem like the simplest and fastest path to resolution. It’s important to understand a guilty plea can result in more consequences than a simple fine. Traffic violation convictions put points on your license, raise your insurance rates and go on your record, which means if there’s a next time, you’re likely to face stiffer punishment.

Our traffic violation attorneys will meet with you to review your case and the potential penalties you face. We will take an in-depth look at the short- and long-term effects of a guilty conviction and help you choose the best course of action with the ultimate goal of protecting your driving privileges and saving you money in the long run.

The lawyers at Dozier Miller have a proven record of defending clients in all types of traffic violation cases, including:

  • Moving violations such as running red lights, speeding and reckless driving
  • Driving with an expired or revoked license, or without any license at all
  • Driving with false or expired tags or registration


Whether you were stopped on the way home after two drinks at happy hour or were involved in a traffic accident where alcohol was a factor, driving under the influence (DUI) charges are serious matters.


Being put on probation is an alternative to being put in jail — it’s a second chance. However, probation comes with rules and restrictions. If those rules are broken, there’s a risk of having probation revoked and being ordered to jail.


Conviction in drug crime cases can have serious and permanent effects on your future, long after you’ve paid the steep fines or served time. If you’ve been arrested on drug possession, trafficking or manufacturing charges, it is critical that you contact an experienced drug crime defense attorney.


The justice system is relentless in cracking down on violent crimes. No matter where you live, the punishments for violent crime charges are severe, with severe jail time possible. The effect a conviction can have on your life — your career, your family, your independence — is staggering.
