Traffic Offenses

Award-winning Virginia Traffic Lawyer

Even simple traffic infractions can have real consequences. Typically, one can pay a fine before the court date to resolve the case – often without realizing that this amounts to an admission of guilt and will result in a conviction.

Erik Jurgensen is an acclaimed former Virginia criminal and traffic prosecutor. As a criminal defense lawyer, he knows how prosecutors think and will navigate the complex maze of the criminal justice system for you.

When to Call a Traffic Ticket Lawyer

Prepaying your traffic ticket is an admission of guilt that will result in a conviction. While a simple ticket may not carry penalties as severe as criminal traffic cases, moving violations can result in demerit points on your driving record. Demerit point accumulation can result in license suspension and higher insurance costs.
