The consequences of a speeding ticket can include significant fines, surcharges, and higher insurance rates. The State of Tennessee also has a point system that assigns a certain number of points to different traffic violations. The more points you accumulate, the more you put your driver's license at risk. At the Law Office of Joshua S. Reed, we will work diligently to get your ticket dismissed or keep it off your record. Mr. Reed maintains a high success rate in getting his clients' speeding tickets dismissed or kept off their records.

The penalties for a speeding ticket greatly increase the more miles you were driving over the speed limit. The point levels increase, the fines go up, insurance premiums go up, or insurance companies can cancel your policy. It may even result in the suspension or loss of your driver's license.
If you are a professional driver or have another job where your employment requires a Commercial Driver's License (CDL), it is extremely critical that you keep your record clear of speeding tickets. The cost of a lawyer to advocate for your defense may turn out to be far less than the increased insurance premiums you could face with points accumulating on your record. If you are a resident of another state, but receive a citation while driving through Tennessee, you may be unaware that you can hire a qualified attorney to appear on your behalf. An attorney may be able to negotiate on your behalf while you are merely available by telephone. The consequence of too many points on your record could result in the loss of your CDL and your job. If you are a commercially licensed driver who has been issued a speeding ticket, you cannot afford to go to Court alone.
