Building a Defense

In Georgia, you will be assigned points on your license based on how many miles over the speed limit you were driving. Having points on your license will definitely increase your insurance premiums. In addition, if you receive 15 points or more on your license within two years, your driver’s license will be suspended. With this in mind, it is important to consult with a Georgia speeding ticket attorney to mitigate the damage as much as possible and build a strong defense.

First Steps to Take Once Accused

The best way to fight your speeding ticket starts when you are pulled over. It is important to be careful about what you say to the police officer. For example, if the officer asks if you know why you were pulled over, you should always say that you don’t, as even something as simple as “I’m sorry” may be seen as an admission of guilt.

After you receive your ticket, take a few minutes to make some notes. Write down the make and model of the officer’s car. You should also make notes about the weather conditions, who was in your car at the time, and the current driving conditions. These details will be useful in court.

Contesting Your Ticket

Now you need to decide whether or not to fight your speeding ticket. Here are some numbers for you – only 5 percent of speeding tickets are contested. Of those 5 percent, approximately one-half are dismissed. The other half usually result in reduced fines or other plea bargain deals. So, even if you fight the ticket and do not win, you aren’t out any more than you would have been in the beginning.

Hiring a Speeding Lawyer

The next question you have to ask is if you should hire an attorney. It is certainly in your best interest to hire an attorney if your driving privileges will be suspended as a result of the points on your license. You may also want to have an attorney on your side to avoid the higher insurance rates that come along with a speeding ticket on your record. A good attorney will be familiar with the prosecutors on your case and will have further insight into having your ticket dropped or even reduced.

Client Reviews
Great lawyer helped me out a lot. Very attentive, made me feel comfortable and at ease!! Really knows his stuff - would use him anytime. M.L.
Mr. Larry Kohn could not have been more helpful. I sent him a message for a free consultation, and unfortunately my case had to be handled in another state. But he completely walked me through everything I needed to do, and even offered to assist the lawyer I did find in Virginia should they need help with my case. Jamie V.
Mr. Kohn is just amazing. He is truthful and realistic when explaining potential outcomes of your case and doesn’t force you to hire him or anything. When I met him, he went through everything about the case and ways to fight it off first before even telling me about his services. He got my case dismissed and kept me out of a lot of potential problems with school applications and future job opportunities. I highly recommend him to anyone. Anurag G.
