Daniel J. Andoni
Attorney at Law
Since a criminal conviction could affect your entire future, endanger your reputation and your chances of getting a job or a loan, it is vital that you seek out an experienced attorney as soon as you are being investigated or charged with a criminal offense. The right attorney can assess your case, make smart legal strategies, and defend you in court, increasing your likelihood of staying out of jail and protecting your future.
Given the complexity of criminal defense, it is vital that you choose an attorney who combines experience with a good track record and has a thorough understanding and familiarity with the law, the prosecutors and the local courts. If you have been accused of a crime, your time to get the right experienced criminal defense attorney is limited. Regardless of whether you are innocent or guilty, you deserve aggressive, experienced legal representation in a court of law.
In Michigan, the Motor Vehicle Code is divided into two major categories, civil infractions and crimes. Since one cannot be jailed for a civil infraction one may think, just pay the fine and move on.
Unfortunately, the State of Michigan has enacted a point system whereby Michigan Drivers are assessed points for depending on the severity of the offense.
Your insurance company when determining your insurance premium relies on these points, the more points on your driving record the higher your monthly premium.
Therefore, it makes economic sense to fight the ticket, assuming you have a defense, however because the proceedings are not criminal in nature you are not afforded the same rights as a criminal defendant i.e. the beyond a reasonable doubt standard.
If you have been issued a traffic ticket, please contact us so that we may go over your options.
