Providing settlement negotiations and legal representation in court for PA drivers charged with moving violations or traffic tickets.
Thousands of people are charged with motor vehicle violations everyday. Most will plead guilty, pay the fine and move on. Some will soon learn that PennDOT is suspending their driver’s license because of the conviction. The license suspension may result from accruing too many points or the particular driving offense may carry a mandatory suspension. Loss of a driver’s license may have devastating impacts on a Pennsylvania driver’s ability to work, fulfill his family obligations or get back and forth to school. Once a ticket has been paid it is likely too late to avoid a suspension.
An experience lawyer can greatly help you fight a traffic violation to avoid the penalties.
A guilty plea or conviction of any of these traffic violations can result in costly fines, points against your driver’s license, a suspended license, revocation of your vehicle registration, and even jail time in more serious offenses such as DUI. The Law Office of R. Russell Pugh can defend you against moving violations such as:
- Speeding Tickets
- DUI (Driving Under the Influence)

Avoid a suspended license with a license suspension appeal.
Sometimes it is possible to prevent PennDOT from suspending a license through a license suspension appeal. These appeals are filed in the Court of Common Pleas after the notice of suspension is received. A hearing is held in the court with an experienced PennDOT lawyer prosecuting the case. These appeals are highly technical and an unrepresented driver has virtually no chance of winning.
