Ann Arbor Traffic Violations Lawyer

Protecting Your Michigan Driver's License

In Michigan, traffic violations are categorized as felonies, misdemeanors, or civil infractions. Although civil infractions are the least serious category, these violations can still be penalized with a fine and points on your license. If you received any type of traffic citation or were arrested for a traffic violation, I can help you fight back to ensure a clean record. With more than 15 years of experience, I am familiar with the state's traffic laws and know how to protect you and your driving record.

Contact my firm, Susan Longsworth, PLC, today at (734) 201-0303 to schedule a free consultation.
