Civil Motor Vehicle Infractions (Traffic tickets)

Massachusetts speeding ticket lawyer

Motor Vehicle citation attorney

Traffic ticket defense lawyer

What may seem like a "simple traffic ticket" can have life- altering consequences. One civil infraction, if found responsible, can lead to thousand of dollars in your insurance premium for several years, and it will stay on your motor vehicle driver's history forever. However, the consequences of these "surchargeable events" can quickly become even more drastic. Most people are unaware that one single traffic ticket for simple civil infractions can cause a license loss, just by paying the the very minimal fine/ assessment. That's right; paying the ticket can cause your insurance premium to skyrocket, and/ or your license to be suspended. That's because once you pay the ticket in full, you are "admitting fault" for each alleged infraction, and a "Responsible" finding enters on your record. 3 or more "responsible" findings in a year can lead to a license loss, or requirement that you attend driver retraining course- even if those 3 infractions were all the result of one single ticket/ traffic stop! 

Once you already have motor vehicle infractions on your driver's history, the difference between a "responsible" and "not responsible" finding for each and every alleged infraction can mean the difference between not having your insurance premiums increase, or even whether or not your license is suspended for 30 days up to 4 years as a habitual traffic offender. Once that happens, it is almost impossible to undue. These are just some of the many reasons that when people get a civil traffic ticket, they take the initiative to get ahead of these potential disastrous consequences, and hire Urbelis Law.

Client Reviews
"Ben Urbelis recently represented me in an OUI case in which I had crashed my car. I honestly did not believe I had any chance of beating it, but fortunately for me Ben was outstanding and all charges were dropped. In my first hearing he was calm, assertive and straight to the point. I was extremely impressed and satisfied. I left my hearing feeling confident that I had made the right choice of hiring him. I am positive I would have lost this case and walked away with an OUI if I hadn't. I am very happy with how he handled my case and how reassured I felt having him as my lawyer." MC
