Traffic Ticket Lawyer Serving Beaufort, Bluffton, Hilton Head, Hardeeville, Ridgeland and Yemassee, South Carolina

Speeding Ticket Attorney in Beaufort South Carolina
Receiving a speeding ticket in South Carolina leads to fines, higher insurance rates and possible suspensions. South Carolina will assess points for any speeding offense, even if you are charged with driving 1 MPH over the limit.

If you are a South Carolina license holder and you receive more than 12 points on your license, your driving privileges may be suspended. If you are an out-of-state driver, you may also suffer the consequences of a South Carolina ticket once your home state receives notice of the offense.

Get the Vigorous Defense You Deserve
If you received a speeding ticket or were charged with a serious traffic offense like reckless driving or Driving Under the Influence, do not take your charges lightly. Even a simple speeding ticket could result in a significant hike in your auto insurance rates or put your driving privileges at risk.

Protect Your Rights
Do not plead guilty to a DUI charge before speaking with an attorney. Many people do not understand that they may have options.

South Carolina's DUI laws are highly technical. Unlike many lawyers who deal primarily with typical criminal charges, DUI is a large portion of Mr. Geier's practice and he regularly attends seminars which deal specifically with DUI laws and DUI defense strategies. Even if you were over the legal limit, you may have a viable defense. If retained to handle your case, Mr. Geier will take time to review the conduct of your arresting officer to determine if the traffic stop and subsequent arrest may be challenged. He will ask key questions on your behalf:
  • Did the officer have sufficient cause to stop your vehicle?
  • Did the officer properly conduct your field sobriety tests?
  • Did the officer properly administer your breath test?
  • Do the videos of the scene comply with the statutory requirements?
  • Did the officer violate your constitutional rights?

By investigating the facts that led to your arrest, Mr. Geier hopes to discover errors that may be used to seek a dismissal, acquittal or leverage that is necessary to obtain a more favorable outcome through negotiation or trial. You can trust that Mr. Geier will work diligently to seek the best possible result.
