Denver Traffic Lawyer

Many people associate their driving privileges with concepts of absolute necessity, freedom, and independence. Some of the most regularly prosecuted traffic violations include hit-and-run, invalid driver's license, charges of speeding, careless/reckless driving, traffic control signal violations, motorcycle violations, and improper lane changes. In Colorado traffic violations are serious, with major consequences.

Penalties for traffic violations can include: fines, points assessed against a driving record, and jail time. Collateral consequences of traffic violation convictions may also include increased insurance premiums and potentially adverse effects at a person's current or future employment positions.

In Colorado, convictions for traffic violations are assessed a certain number of "points" against a person's driving record with the Colorado Department of Revenue, Division of Motor Vehicles. For example, a conviction for reckless driving carries a point assessment of eight points, whereas, a conviction for a speeding ticket can carry a point assessment up to 12 points. Unfortunately, for an adult driver over 21 years of age, the Department of Revenue will suspend a person's license upon the accumulation of 12 points in a 12-month period, or 18 points within a 24-month period.

Even more stringent standards apply to minors, who are between 18 and 21 years of age. An 18-21 year old minor will lose his/her license upon the accumulation of nine points in 12-month period, or 12 points in a 24-month period. Yet, the most stringent standards apply to minors who are less than 18 years of age. Accordingly, a minor under 18 years of age will lose his/her license upon the accumulation of six points in a 12-month period, or, seven points in a 24-month period.

Client Reviews

"An excellent lawyer choice for my son who was charged with driving while his license was revoked. DMV had mistakenly sent (3) letters of revocation to the incorrect address, so I hired Monty to prove that my son never knew his license was revoked. Monty kept me informed at all times as to what was happening and what he doing to prove my son's innocence in this matter. We were to appear in court on 29 March 2012 and Monte informed us on 27 March 2012, that the case had been dismissed!!! Monte charged a fair, flat rate for what he did in this matter and should the need arise to hire a lawyer or to recommend a lawyer, I would not hesitate to give Monte's name.” Linda

"I consulted three other attorneys on my traffic offense in Colorado and none of them thought I could beat it. Then I consulted with Monte Robbins. He not only relieved my warrant without my presence in Colorado, but he got my habitual driving offense reduced to an infraction. I was up against the wall on this case but thanks to Monte miracles are possible. I have hired my share of attorneys and Monte Robbins has produced the best results for me yet. After being without my driving privileges for ten years I paid a small fine and am legal with a clean record. I Highly recommend this attorney." Steve

"I hired Monte J. Robbins to represent me. He gave 110% to my case never rushed me off the phone, quick to gather all information regarding my case. Monte is very knowledgeable and helped me out a lot. He kept me informed every step of the way through my case. I was always able to get a hold of him for any questions i had. The outcome of my case was way better then i had expected. Monte did a excellent job on my case and I would highly recommend him to anyone. Monte won my case and I am confident that he can do the same for anyone else." Jeremy
