Florida Reckless Driving Lawyer Helping Drivers Fight Charges
Many people are surprised to find that the consequences of a traffic offense are serious. People charged with reckless driving, for example, may face 60 to 90 days in jail. They also face points on their driver's license and increased insurance rates. It is important to take traffic offenses seriously.
The best way to avoid these consequences is to work with an experienced criminal defense attorney. Attorney Andrew D. Washor was a prosecutor for five years before starting his own law practice, which serves clients in areas of law including family law and criminal defense. His knowledge of the prosecution gives him insight into the government's strategies in criminal cases. He uses this perspective on the other side of the courtroom to his criminal defense clients' advantage.
Mr. Washor has since spent three decades defending people accused of traffic offenses. At our Fort Lauderdale law firm, we represent people accused of many different traffic offenses, including the ones listed below:
- Driving on a suspended or revoked driver's license
- Reckless driving
- Habitual traffic offenders
- Leaving the scene of an accident
- Vehicular homicide
Habitual Traffic Offenders
If you meet certain requirements, the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) may designate you a habitual traffic offender and suspend your driving privileges for five years. This may happen after you have three or more convictions for certain traffic offenses — like reckless driving, voluntary or involuntary manslaughter or driving while your license is suspended or revoked — within a five-year period.
If you have received a letter telling you that you are being designated a habitual traffic offender, it is critical to take action right away. Contact attorney Andrew D. Washor to save your driver's license.
