In Louisiana, many residents’ first encounter with law enforcement
happens on the side of the road after being pulled over for speeding.
Attorneys in our law firm are experts in Louisiana speeding laws and traffic laws, and we use our expertise and experience to fight for you. Our home base is in Baton Rouge; however, we represent clients throughout the entire state of Louisiana. If you are one of the 14 million people cited for moving violations each year, our traffic ticket lawyers may keep your ticket off of your driving record, possibly saving you hundreds or thousands of dollars in fines and increased insurance premiums.
Fines and insurance premiums are not the only consequences of a traffic citation – a moving violation may result in the loss of your license. In the case of a criminal or more serious traffic offense, it may cost you your job, your family, or even your freedom.
However, any moving violation which appears on your record may affect your life in less obvious ways – employers, attorneys, and insurance companies may be granted access to your record if they show “good cause” reasons. The Department of Motor Vehicles and law enforcement agencies are guaranteed access to these records at all times.
Know Your Rights
If you are pulled over for speeding, always ask the law enforcement officer why you were pulled over. Failure to stop a vehicle without probable cause or reasonable suspicion constitutes an unreasonable seizure in violation of your legal rights. Also, never consent to a search of your vehicle. Unless the officer has a search warrant, any search will be without your consent, and may be fought in court.
If you are pulled over, never give a statement to the police without first contacting an attorney. It is your legal right to remain silent and to seek the advice of a competent attorney as soon as possible. In fact, sooner is better than later: the longer you wait, the weaker your defense may become.
Our traffic attorneys have successfully defended dozens of clients facing speeding charges in Louisiana. Contact our expert attorneys immediately if you or someone you know has been charged with a speeding violation. You need the support of an experienced legal team with extensive knowledge of Louisiana laws, procedures, evidence, and sentencing.
Don’t be run over by a system that will let your driving record get spoiled. Our lawyers will work with you and do everything we can to produce a positive result.
