Our lawyers have handled motor vehicle charges for decades, and we know the systems in Connecticut and how a seemingly simple courthouse resolution can force you into driver retraining, a period of suspension or a revocation of your license. We try to avoid these consequences by presenting the best case possible to the DMV or in a court of law.
If you have been issued an infraction or summons, you need to have a lawyer who is educated about the point system, the motor vehicle regulations, and what alternatives exist for you to successfully settle your case to avoid more serious long term licensing problems. We can represent you at a DMV hearing or in a criminal court. Our knowledge of both systems will allow us to tailor your defense to the specific situations that you face, which can strengthen your arguments and defenses.
Whether you have a commercial driver’s license (CDL), a regular license, or a public passenger license, don’t get taken advantage of by a motor vehicle infraction. Hiring a lawyer can mean reducing penalties or avoiding them altogether. This can be helpful if you rely on your license to work or to get around.

Infractions | Violations
There are many different types of motor vehicle infraction in Connecticut. In this section, we discuss some of the most common violations that our clients have. In most cases, these violations are minor. But, they can carry large fines and other serious penalties, such as the suspension of your license. To avoid these unnecessary penalties, you need to build a solid defense to the infraction charges. Here, you can learn more about these common charges and how to fight them.
Commercial Motor Vehicle
If you have a commercial driver’s license (CDL), driving infractions can result in more serious consequences for you than for the average driver. This is because you probably use a commercial motor vehicle in your job. Having your license suspended or revoked can therefore greatly affect your ability to work. Learn more about your commercial driver’s license and how to keep it when charged with a motor vehicle infraction with this information.
Going To Court
Going to court, even for a minor motor vehicle infraction, can seem overwhelming. You probably have not been in this situation before. Because of this, you might feel nervous or worried about the process. Learning more about what will happen in court and how you can positively present yourself can make this process easier for you. Consider the following information about going to court to help you through this situation.
A restoration of license hearing is an administrative proceeding concerning your driving privileges only. If your license has been suspended for a reason other than a DUI, you will also attend a restoration of license hearing. Based on this hearing, the DMV will decide if your license should be suspended and for how long.
