Traffic Ticket Attorneys in Franklin

Experienced Traffic Ticket Attorneys in Franklin, Brentwood & Columbia, TN Protect Your License

Capable representation for civil offense, misdemeanor and felony traffic violations in Spring Hill, Murfreesboro, Lawrenceburg and Pulaski, Tennessee

If you’ve received a traffic citation in Tennessee, you’re probably not happy about the fine, but may be more inclined to pay the fine than to hire an attorney to fight it. In the short term, that may seem like a cost-effective decision, but having a guilty plea on your record can have costly long-term consequences. Under Tennessee’s point system for traffic offenses, if you accumulate 12 points in a one-year period, you lose your license. Additionally, insurance companies raise premiums when their policyholders accumulate points. The Law Offices of Adrian H. Altshuler & Associates has more than 20 years of experience helping Tennessee motorists minimize the impact of a traffic citation. We can help you fight your traffic ticket, saving you money and preserving your driving privileges.
