Atlanta Traffic Violations & Points System Attorney

Atlanta Traffic Defense Attorney

Traffic Ticket Defense From $150

Pulled over for speeding? Do not pay the ticket. Paying the fine is the equivalent of pleading guilty or being convicted. You can fight your speeding or traffic ticket and save money in the long term. I can show you how.

I am defense attorney James Paisley. During my career, I have learned that most people are unaware of their rights in traffic violation cases. They think paying the fine will fix everything, not realizing that the conviction will stay on their driving record and increase their auto insurance rates. I can help you fight your traffic violation. For a free consultation, please call 404.618.0960 or send me an e-mail.

The Points System

In Georgia, all traffic violations are considered criminal offenses and misdemeanors. This is why you need a lawyer to protect your rights. Even a simple speeding ticket will add points to your driver's license and could cause your insurance rates to rise.

In addition to paying more for auto insurance, an accumulation of points can also result in a suspended license. Under the Georgia points system, people over age 21 who accumulate 15 or more points in a 24-month period will receive a license suspension.

You will receive points on your license if convicted of the following traffic violations:

  • Speeding: two to six points, depending on how many miles per hour over the limit you drive
  • Reckless driving: four points
  • Aggressive driving: six points
  • Unlawful passing of a school bus: six points

Contact Me First

Before you pay the ticket, call my Atlanta office at 404.618.0960. I will challenge the evidence against you and strive for a dismissal or amended charge.
