Pennsylvania Speeding Ticket, Traffic Violations Lawyer
Gone are the days when you could simply pay a reasonable fine for a speeding ticket and forget all about it.
Every traffic offense you plead guilty to adds points to your driving record and can lead to a suspended or revoked driver's license and an increase in your car insurance.
Do Not Plead Guilty If You Don't Have To
Always Contact an Experienced Lawyer Regarding Traffic Offenses
Contact me, criminal defense attorney Niels C. Eriksen. I can help you fight speeding tickets and other types of violations in traffic court. I have more than 10 years of experience successfully defending clients against traffic citations, such as:

New Traffic Laws Abound
One of the reasons it is important to retain an attorney who focuses on this area of law is that traffic laws now change four times a year. Speeding tickets that didn't include license suspensions now do. Violations that didn't include consequences can now cost you a bundle. I make it part of my job to keep up on the most recent changes to the law. Not every lawyer does.
New Technology Causes Legal Problems
Have you received a traffic ticket in the mail, even though you were never stopped by an officer? New "photo cop" technology used in some jurisdictions photographs the license plates of cars that run certain red lights. A ticket is sent to the owner of the vehicle, who might or might not have been driving the car at the time of the violation. The technology hasn't been tested or approved, yet it is being used to charge citizens. I can help you fight these tickets in court.
