Traffic Ticket Defense

Do you have a speeding ticket, traffic ticket, or other municipal citation that you want to fight or have negotiated down? Has your driver’s license point limit taken a hit? Do you work as a commercial driver and simply cannot afford to have a ticket on your driving record? If so, we can help!

When you hire an attorney from Roney & Knupp, we will appear on your behalf, saving you from having to take off of work. Our attorneys are experienced in traffic matters and can negotiate an amended citation, reduced fine, lower or eliminate driver’s license demerit points, and/or have your fine otherwise reduced. We can also step in and fight your traffic ticket all the way through trial if negotiating is simply not an option.

Remember, traffic tickets directly impact insurance premiums which can cost you more money long term than the cost of the ticket itself. It is in your best interest, financially and otherwise, to reduce or prevent any damage to your driving record. Call Roney & Knupp today for a free phone consultation!

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What will it cost to have attorney representation in a municipal or traffic ticket matter?

  • We can negotiate your municipal citation matter for $175 in most Milwaukee area municipalities.

How does the Wisconsin driver’s license point system work?

  • When 12 or more demerit points build up in one year, your driver’s license will be suspended for a minimum of two months. If your driver’s license is suspended, the suspension will be on your record for five years from the date of suspension. For serious offenses, or alcohol-related convictions, convictions will remain on your driving record for 55 years.
  • Demerit points are earned for many reasons, including failure to perform a duty after an accident, reckless driving or racing, driving in excess of the speed limit, improper brakes or lights, or deviating from a traffic lane (just to name a few).
  • Persons who hold a probationary license are subject to double the point demerits for the second and all subsequent points.
