Lower Makefield Township Criminal Defense Lawyer

If you reside in the Lower Makefield Township area of Pennsylvania, finding yourself in trouble with the law can be absolutely harrowing. If you have never been arrested before, you may wonder what the police officer saw and what you might be facing in terms of the consequences. No matter what the crime you are being charged with, it’s imperative to immediately get in contact with an experienced criminal defense attorney who can begin to build the strongest possible defense for your case.

Upon your arrest, it may be tempting to answer questions posed by the police as a way to defend yourself against the allegations. However, law enforcement doesn’t care about this and will try to build a case against you and even use whatever you say against you as well. Never answer any questions unless you have a skilled Lower Makefield Township criminal defense lawyer by your side, looking out for your best interests. Politely decline to answer any questions and ask for your attorney instead.

Traffic Violations in Lower Makefield Township

It is very common to be pulled over for a traffic violation. Yet, at the same time, it can be a scary, stressful experience. In many instances, you may even be unaware that you committed any infraction and may wonder why the police officer pulled you over in the first place. In most cases, a traffic violation results in being charged with a minor misdemeanor as well as a fine to pay. However, in some cases, you might even receive some time in jail and other ramifications.

Even for the most minor of traffic offenses, it’s wise to fight the ticket you receive, even if it’s a first offense. When you simply accept the situation and get convicted, you will receive points against your driver’s license that can result in adverse consequences. You will have higher auto insurance premiums and serious penalties. You may even face a suspension of your driver’s license. There are certain violations you can fight, which include the following:

• Careless driving
• Driving too slowly
• Driving on a suspended license
