Defending College Students

It’s Not Just the Ticket Consequences

College students face a different set of issues when it comes to defending traffic offenses. Consequences can have an impact on the students ability to obtain employment upon graduation. High fines will be harder on a college student with limited income. There are age restrictions for completing driving school that can make it more difficult to adhere to a court order requiring the completion of driving school for a dismissal or reduction of the underlying case. When facing a traffic offense, understanding how to defend that ticket with college students in mind is an area Mattox Law has experience and success in for their clients.

Knowledgeable Representation is Key

Understanding court and locality preference for treatment of college student cases can gives Mattox Law an edge in the courtroom. In some courts, the judges will be flexible to try to help out college students understanding the higher consequences they face. In many cases, we have arranged for a reduced fine for college students.

Driving School for College Students

When it comes to driving school, Virginia requires you to be at least 20 years old for online driving school. This requirement affects underclassmen, and can also complicate the issue if you are an out of state student. You would still be permitted to take the driving school in person, but that means time away from your educational responsibilities to attend driving school. With these unique issues presented, we can frequently request the court provide an appropriate amount of time to afford completion of driving school that will not affect your school time.
