A Law Firm Helping You Contest Driving Charges And Keep Your License
Although driving is defined as a privilege in Idaho, most people consider it essential to their daily lives. We need to drive to get to and from work, transport our children, buy groceries and tend to all other practical necessities. Anything that threatens your license must be taken seriously, which is why many people choose to work with Martens Law Office, P.C., when facing traffic infractions and driving-related criminal offenses.
Our attorney, Jared B. Martens, has over 20 years of criminal law experience, and he advocates aggressively to protect his clients’ rights and safeguard their futures. Whether you are facing a traffic infraction or a serious driving-related crime like DUI, our firm is ready to help.
Defending Drivers Against All Manner Of Infractions And Criminal Charges
Don’t hesitate to contact attorney Martens if you’ve been accused of any of the following:
- Texting while driving
- Inattentive or reckless driving
- Fleeing the scene of an accident
- Driving without insurance
- Driving with an invalid license
- Driving while your license is suspended (driving without privileges)
If you are a commercial driver, it is even more critical to maintain a clean driving record. Mr. Martens understands this, and works tirelessly to help commercial drivers fight traffic charges.
Why Hire An Attorney For Traffic Offenses?
After being cited for a traffic infraction, most people simply pay the fine. They assume it isn’t worth the money, time or effort to contest the allegations. But when you pay a fine, you are pleading guilty, and the consequences often go beyond the fine itself.
Each traffic infraction has an assigned point value. If you accumulate too many points in a certain period of time (12 points over 12 months, for example), your license will be suspended. Even before that happens, insurance companies can (and usually will) use infractions as an excuse to charge you higher premiums because you have shown yourself to be a riskier driver.
Over time, these costs can add up. Instead of pleading guilty and accepting the financial and legal consequences, it may be wise to work with an attorney who can help you contest the allegations and fight to keep your record clean. In many cases, Mr. Martens can appear in court on your behalf so that you don’t need to miss work or other important obligations.
