Phoenix Traffic Violation Attorney

Were you issued a traffic citation? While some minor violations like failure to yield are infractions, others are more serious and can be charged as misdemeanors. If you need to fight a misdemeanor traffic offense, get in touch with MayesTelles PLLC today!

We Are Prepared To Handle These & Other Traffic Offenses


Many people are under the false assumption that traffic violations are nothing more than citations, minor infractions. In reality, some traffic violations are misdemeanors. For example, reckless driving can be charged as a class 2 or class 1 misdemeanor (ARS § 28-693). Aggressive driving is a class 1 misdemeanor (ARS § 28-695), and driving with a suspended license is a class 2 misdemeanor (ARS § 28-3480).

To protect yourself against these and related charges, contact MayesTelles PLLC today.

Getting DUIs Reduced to Traffic Offenses

Many times, when DUI cases are not able to be dismissed completely, we are able to advocate for a charge reduction. Usually, when DUIs are reduced, they are reduced to a traffic offense such as reckless driving or aggressive driving. This is successful case outcome for a few reasons –

  • A traffic offense will not have penalties as severe as DUI
  • A traffic offense will not result in automatic license suspension/revocation
  • A traffic offense is usually an infraction, whereas DUIs are charged as misdemeanors or felonies
  • A traffic offense will not have as severe an impact on your insurance premiums

Fighting a Traffic Ticket in Phoenix

If you receive a traffic ticket in Phoenix, your case will likely be handled in Phoenix Municipal Court, located at 300 W. Washington Street in Phoenix, AZ. This is the court that handles everything from minor traffic violations (like running a red light) to more serious traffic violations such as class 1 misdemeanor aggressive driving. This court does not handle felony offenses or tickets that were issued by the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office. If you are unsure which court would handle your case, refer to the bottom portion of your traffic citation – it should be listed there.

If you appear in court to fight your traffic ticket, it is because you chose not to attend driving school and/or pay the citation fine. Doing either of the latter would constitute an admission of guilt.
