Traffic Violations

Bessemer Traffic Violations Lawyer

DUI/Drunk Driving | Speeding Tickets | Reckless Driving | Driving with a Suspended or Revoked License | Failure to Obey Traffic Laws, Signs or Signals


If you have been charged with a moving violation, you don’t have to simply accept your guilt and pay the fine. You have options. An experienced attorney can help you minimize the consequences of a traffic ticket, so that you don’t unnecessary run the risk of losing your driving privileges or face substantial increases in auto insurance premiums.

At the law office of Ginette A. Dow, I bring more than 19 years of experience to individuals and businesses throughout Jefferson County and Shelby County in Alabama who face criminal charges, including people cited for traffic violations. As a city judge in Lakeview since 2001, I have an extensive knowledge of the laws and procedures involved with traffic citations. I can anticipate the strategies that prosecutors will use to try to get a conviction.

When you hire me to help you challenge a traffic ticket, I will take the time to listen carefully to the details of your case, so that I can determine the best approach to get the results you want. I will provide you with an honest assessment of all your options, as well as your chances of success, so that you can make an informed decision about how you want to proceed. I am an experienced trial attorney and can also represent you in criminal appeals.

Protecting People Charged with Traffic Violations

I aggressively protect the rights of people who have been arrested for or charged with moving violations. I handle all matters related to your defense, preparing and filing any paperwork required by the court, and acting as your advocate in all hearings during the process. I defend people charged with:

  • Speeding
  • Reckless driving
  • Driving with a suspended or revoked license

When you hire me to represent you in a traffic matter, I will first make a determination regarding whether you should seek a plea bargain or you should try to fight the charges in court. I will look carefully at the facts and circumstances of your arrest, including whether police had probable cause to pull you over. If there are procedural violations by law enforcement officers, I will seek to have evidence thrown out or charges dismissed. In all circumstances, I will use my experience, knowledge, skill and resources to work to minimize the impact of a ticket on your driving record.
