If you received a traffic ticket in the Denver Metro area or anywhere in the state of Colorado, here's what you should do next...

Speak to a Lawyer Before Paying Traffic Tickets

If you recently received a speeding ticket, red-light camera ticket, or another type of ticket, you should: 

Weigh Your Options

First, you have to decide if you would rather pay legal fees or risk the penalties associated with your traffic violation. If you are being charged with a major traffic violation, such as excessive speeding or DUI, the penalties can be very high. When deciding whether you need a lawyer, ask yourself whether you can afford to take on increased insurance costs, license suspension, substantial fines, or jail time.

Don't Pay—Wait

Per the Colorado Department of Revenue Division of Motor Vehicles (DMV), paying a ticket is considered an admission of guilt. If you wish to contest the citation, the DMV asks that you attend court on the date issued on your citation.

Why Should I Hire a Lawyer?

Not all Coloradans who get traffic tickets will need a lawyer. In general, you should talk to one of our Denver lawyers if you are facing: 

Serious Infractions

The more serious your traffic violation is, the more beneficial it is to have an attorney on your side. Misdemeanors, felonies, and DUI charges are the most serious types of traffic violations and can carry heavy repercussions, including jail time. Anyone charged with these violations is encouraged to hire a lawyer to ensure the best possible outcome.

Harsh Penalties 

A traffic violation can carry significant penalties, including points on your driver's license, hefty fines, and jail time. While a fine is an undesirable nuisance that can affect your budget, points are more of a cause for concern. With points on your driver's license, you can face increased insurance costs, license suspensions, and a tainted driving record. Our Denver lawyers can help you fight for lower penalties or even the dismissal of your case. 

Hate Dealing with Attorneys? Here's Why We're Different

Denver has many capable lawyers to choose from, but here's why The Dadvocates should be your first choice: 

Knowledge of Driving Laws

Title 42 is a 615-page document detailing Colorado's vehicle and traffic laws. You don't have time to become an expert on vehicle and traffic laws, but our attorneys do. We can explain the laws pertaining to your case in clear, simple terms so that you understand your rights and your options.

Experience with All Types of Cases

Our attorneys can handle anything from basic traffic violations like running a stop sign to serious infractions such as excess speeding tickets or DUIs. No matter how serious your case is, our attorneys will work hard to reduce your penalties, negotiate on your behalf, or have your case dismissed entirely. 

Compassionate Counsel

We understand that your traffic ticket is not a reflection of who you are. We have a reputation for being compassionate with our clients, but tough in court. Whether you are facing a fairly minor traffic ticket or a serious criminal charge, our attorneys are ready to fight for you.

Outstanding Results

Our objective is to reach the best possible results in court, and we will never encourage you to take a plea deal unless we truly believe that it is the best option. Whether you are facing a small traffic infraction or a serious violation, our attorneys will pursue the best possible results.

"They Have Their Clients' Best Interest in Mind."

"I called Dadvocates to find legal advice about a particular sensitive situation I was dealing with.  I don't typically like calling law firms because I find they provide minimal advice while running up my tab.  But in this case, Jason and Kaitlyn really helped me out...These two attorneys are very professional and I really believe they have their clients' best interest in mind."

Is It Possible to Get Your Charges Dismissed?

For many who face charges pertaining to navigating area traffic, our Denver lawyers have been able to get charges completely dismissed. In order to accomplish this, the police officer who issued the ticket must now show up to court, you must take a plea deal for a less serious violation, and you will need to take part in some type of probationary period. Our team will review all of the possible outcomes during your consultation to help you choose the best way forward.
