As a recognized expert in Denver traffic violation laws, Chris Charles is the attorney to call when you are arrested or given a ticket for a traffic violation. He provides thorough knowledge of Colorado's extensive traffic laws and a history of successful court defense and negotiation.

Traffic Offenses

In the state of Colorado, traffic violations carry a point penalty, ranging from one point for the least serious violation to 12 points for the most serious. If an individual in Denver receives at least 12 points within a 12-month span, his license will be automatically suspended for up to one year. For this reason, it's extremely important to be represented by an attorney who understands the laws related to traffic violations and has the ability to negotiate like Chris Charles.

From seemingly minor traffic violations such as parking meter citations to major DUI cases, Chris Charles is willing to defend your rights in court. It's important to note that even for speeding tickets, many of the defenses are complex and technical, so you will need an experienced attorney on your side to secure the most favorable outcome possible.

Did you know?

If you decide to contest a speeding ticket, you are entitled to a process called "discovery," through which you can obtain copies of the arresting officer's notes as well as maintenance records for any radar or laser equipment the officer used.

Some of the most common traffic violations in Colorado include:

  • Child Restraint Law
  • Child Safety Seat
  • Cutting Corner
  • Disregard Traffic Control Device
  • Driver's License (DL) Violation
  • Failure to Fasten Seat Belt
  • Failure to Yield Right-of-Way
  • Failure to Maintain Financial Responsibility (vehicle insurance)
  • Improper Turns
  • Running Red Lights
  • Running a Stop Sign
  • State Registration Law

Did you know?

Committing a traffic violation, such as running a stop sign or turning without signaling, doesn't alone constitute reckless driving. However, combinations of traffic violations or aggravating circumstances can support a reckless driving conviction. For example, a court could find that running several red lights at high speed when other traffic or pedestrians are around is reckless driving.

Chris Charles will fight to prevent the serious consequences that can result from reckless driving and every other traffic violation. He will have the violation dismissed or the charge reduced, and will prevent points from being assessed, or have fewer points assessed, on your driving record whenever possible.
