Though traffic offenses are not the first thing that come to mind when speaking of criminal defense, these offenses can often have severe consequences. Certain DUI offenses result in felony charges. Other traffic offenses like reckless driving, driving on a suspended license or hit-and-run offenses can result in similar consequences — especially in the event someone else is badly injured.

Arizona's Criminal Speeding Law
Criminal speeding is a misdemeanor criminal offense. A criminal speeding conviction could lead to 30 days in jail, a fine of $500 plus surcharges and one year of probation. The consequences of such a conviction mean more than just criminal penalties, however. They can mean points added to your license and an increase in your insurance rates.
When issued a criminal speeding citation, I will take quick action as a traffic ticket attorney. I will work to reduce or eliminate all penalties and fight to keep a criminal speeding conviction off your record.
