Traffic Tickets & Offenses

At the Jardine Law Offices P.C., you can count on having a knowledgeable and experienced Salt Lake City traffic offense lawyer by your side. We can help whether you are facing a moving violation or a more serious criminal traffic offense. You need someone who will ensure that you are treated fairly and that no mistakes are made that will cost you more money than necessary. Call us today so we can get to work on your case.


Moving violations may not seem like a big deal, but they can seriously affect your life. Not only do many moving violations come with massive fines, but you could also see your license suspended and your insurance rates rise tremendously. Consider some of the common moving violations:

  • Speeding
  • Running a red light
  • Running a stop sign
  • Improper lane change
  • Improper passing
  • Failure to yield
  • Racing on the roadways
  • Toll fines
  • Seatbelt violations
  • Violation of a traffic control device
  • Driving at an unsafe speed
  • Violation of the right-of-way

The Jardine Law Offices P.C. are ready to help you with all of these cases and more. Our retainer for most non-criminal infractions starts at just $300, which in many cases will be all the fees we charge on the case. Additional fees may apply to cases outside of our service area, ask for details. Our goal is to get your fees and points against your license reduced so that our services pay for themselves.

  • If you elect to have a bench trial rather than a negotiated settlement, we are willing and able to try your case, additional fees will be required for trial.


Criminal traffic violations come with more serious consequences if you are found guilty, including:

  • Jail or prison time
  • Tremendous fines
  • License suspension
  • Raised insurance rates (often due to SR-22 insurance requirements)

These offenses can leave you with a permanent mark on your criminal record and affect your ability to get a job or get into school in the future.

At the Jardine Law Offices P.C., we are ready to help you with the following cases:

  • Driving under the influence (DUI)
  • Driving with a suspended license
  • Leaving the scene of an accident
  • Driving without a license
  • Reckless driving
  • Eluding the police
  • Habitual traffic offender
  • Other criminal traffic citations

Our goal with these cases is to build a strong defense around you. We will do this by thoroughly reviewing all of the evidence against you, the tactics of the arresting officer, your past traffic violations.


Many people assume the traffic violations are not serious offenses. Some people may choose to pay a fine or attend driver’s school, later on, to get points removed from their license. However, by paying a fine, you are accepting guilt.

Many traffic violations carry misdemeanor or felony penalties. In these cases, it is vital that you secure help from a skilled Salt Lake City traffic violation attorney. Some of the most common traffic violations that the team at the Jardine Law Offices P.C. helps clients with include:

  • Leaving The Scene Of An Accident / Hit-And-Run Cases
  • Vehicular Homicide
  • Reckless Driving
  • Alcohol-Related Driving Offenses
  • Failure To Respond To Officer’s Request
  • Failure To Stop At Accident
  • Accident Causing Property Damage
  • Accident Involving Injury Or Death
  • Vehicular Homicide Involving Text Messaging Or Distracted Driving

A serious traffic violation can result in major fines and even jail or prison time for violators. A misdemeanor or felony conviction can show up on your permanent record and prevent you from getting a job, finding housing, or attending school.


For serious traffic violations, most individuals do not have the resources or experience to beat the charges. A skilled Salt Lake City traffic violation lawyer will handle all aspects of your case. Your attorney will:

  • Obtain all evidence related to the violation, including police reports, video surveillance from traffic cams or nearby businesses, eyewitness statements, and more.
  • Assess the totality of the situation, including the evidence a prosecutor or law enforcement has against you, and make recommendations to you on the best path moving forward.
  • Formulate a defense strategy and vigorously negotiate with the prosecutor in your case to get your charges reduced or dismissed.
