An Experienced Annapolis Traffic Lawyer for When You Are Unjustly Ticketed
Helping Maryland drivers keep their licenses, reduce or eliminate charges, and minimize points
If you are pulled over by the police for a traffic violation, you worry about the legal and financial consequences. Will you lose your license? Can your license be suspended? Can you go to prison for a violation? How many points will there be on your record? What will happen to your insurance? How much are the fines? Do you have any defenses?
Rest assured that I, Gill Andrew Cochran, can help. I have been fighting for the accused, including those charged with traffic offenses, for nearly 20 years. Often there are defenses. The police may not have had the right to stop you. They may not have used certified equipment. They may not have the right records when they come to court. In many cases, I can reduce the charges to lesser offenses when defeating them will not work. Drew Cochran, Attorney at Law has the skills to navigate you through the complexities of Maryland traffic court.
Types of traffic cases that require legal counsel
I handle the full range of Maryland traffic charges. As a knowledgeable Annapolis traffic violations attorney, I defend clients in cases involving:
- Driving without insurance
- Speeding tickets
- Running a red light
- Failure to yield
- Stop sign violations
- Reckless driving
- Driving without a driver’s license
- Driving with a suspended license
- Driving on a revoked license
- Hit-and-run accidents
- Operating a vehicle without proper registration
- Not wearing a seatbelt
- Failing to use child restraints
I also handle traffic tickets for failing to have your vehicle in proper working order, such as not having working lights, horns, mirrors, and brakes.
How Maryland traffic violations can impact your liberty and your wallet
The fines associated with traffic violations can quickly add up to unaffordable amounts, especially if you are facing multiple tickets. If you receive a citation for driving without insurance or driving on a suspended license, the fines are even higher and you may face jail time. I understand the hardship that a traffic ticket can cause. I help clients get their cases dismissed or keep the citation off their record to avoid costly consequences. I will fight to ensure that your traffic offense doesn’t cause you or your loved ones any undue or unexpected financial burden in the future.
If you start accumulating points on your license because of traffic violations, you could find yourself without a license altogether. Your license will be suspended if you reach between 8 and 11 points; it will be revoked if you accumulate 12 or more points. However, you can have a hearing at the Motor Vehicle Administration with an attorney such as myself representing you.
