Traffic Offenses in Forsyth County

Georgia devotes an entire section of the law (Title 40) to motor vehicle regulations. When you are charged with a traffic crime in our state, you risk points against your license, your insurance rates going up or your coverage being cancelled and a criminal record. Traffic offenses are charged as misdemeanors and felonies and the penalties can be harsh, including steep fines, a suspended license and probation or jail time.

Our firm, Zeliff | Watson, has the know-how and experience to guide you through your case as safely as possible. We offer a no-cost consultation to explain your traffic citation, its possible consequences and how your case can be effectively defended. With a DUI lawyer from our firm to assist you, the impact on your driver's license may be minimized.

Common traffic offenses that we successfully defend are:

  • Reckless Driving
  • Charges for Aggressive Driving
  • Hit and Run or Leaving the Scene of an Accident
  • DUI (including alcohol, drugs or their combination)
  • Speeding
  • Charges for no insurance or license and suspended registration
  • Failure to Appear charges and warrants
  • Following Too Closely
  • Failure to Yield
  • Stop-Sign and Traffic Signal charges

Review and Analysis of Your Case

The defense of your traffic offense begins with a full review and analysis of all law enforcement evidence against you, utilizing our knowledge of Georgia traffic laws. There are many proven defenses for traffic crimes and a variety of ways to reach a favorable outcome and we are fully prepared to represent you in court should that need arise. At times, the best solution is to plead guilty to a lesser charge and reduce the possibility of points being added to your driver's license.

Attorney Zeliff from our firm has practiced for over a decade in defending Georgians against traffic charges and has twice been named as one of Georgia's "Super Lawyers" and voted a "Rising Star" by his colleagues. The Georgia Department of Driver Services assesses points against you license based on the violation and what you were convicted of.
