The Impact of a Traffic Violation

Each time an individual receives a traffic ticket, points are assessed and added to the individual’s driving record. Accumulation of points usually results in the suspension of your license or the revocation of your license and an increase in your insurance rates. Additionally, three or more infractions in one incident are usually charged as reckless driving, which results in multiple points being assessed and triggers the requirement for a driver improvement course.

When DUI/DWI charges are involved, a case can get even more complicated. Representation by an experienced aggressive driving defense lawyer can make a huge difference in the outcome of your case. Rockville, Silver Spring defense attorney Joseph C. McKenzie and Payman Tehrani strive to resolve these matters by reducing police allegations and the impact of the alleged infractions.

“I want to thank Joe McKenzie for doing a fantastic job representing me in a reconsideration hearing I had for a second degree assault charge.
This was because in my original conviction my first lawyer had not only fumbled my case he should be disbarred for negligence.
So I asked my corporate attorney to help me find a top flight new criminal lawyer who has swagger in Montgomery County MD. That is exactly what he did. Joe is a very composed, meticulous, intelligent and calculated attorney who very methodically turned an absolute disaster into the best possible outcome I could’ve imagined.
