Traffic Violations

An experienced attorney can be very beneficial in fighting traffic violations. The fact of the matter is that the impact of a traffic charge may not be immediately visible. People often accept the fine, only to find out later that there are other serious consequences. An experienced attorney can assist in helping you work to avoid these consequences.

The law firm of Thomas J. Tomko, Attorney at Law, provides traffic violation defense for people in Sterling Heights, Macomb County and surrounding parts of Michigan. With more than 20 years of experience on our side, we know how to defend against all types of violations.

  • Speeding tickets
  • Careless driving
  • Improper turns
  • Running red lights and stop signs

We can also defend against more serious misdemeanor traffic charges such as:

  • Drunk driving

Penalties For Traffic Violations

The immediate consequences of traffic violations are obvious: points and fines. However, there are numerous secondary consequences that are often overlooked until it is too late. These include the heavy financial responsibility fees that the secretary of state may charge and increased auto insurance premiums.

In Michigan, driving is a privilege. It is not right. When you are accused of a traffic violation, that privilege is in jeopardy. License suspensions are possible, and in some cases, they are mandatory. We can defend against all types of license suspensions.

The license suspension is often treated as a completely separate issue from the traffic offense. It is an issue that we will not ignore. We strive to help you keep your driving privileges.
