In Pennsylvania, the consequences for traffic tickets can be much more severe than a small fine. Accruing many tickets can result in devastating consequences, such as having your license revoked or suspended. This is an especially dangerous threat for those who depend on driving to maintain their livelihood. If you have been cited for any sort of traffic infraction, it is important to retain the services of an attorney that can fight to reduce the penalties or even dismiss the ticket. Ilkhanoff & Silverstein has over 40 years of experience guiding clients through each step of the process and fighting on their behalf. Contact our firm today.
