Our attorneys have a number of different successful defense strategies depending on your particular situation. The officer that gave the citation has relied solely on his/her personal (subjective) visual judgment, usually from within their patrol vehicle a good distance away, and proving your guilt can be more challenging than most people think. In this sense, the law is on your side since you have the Constitutional right that:
1) an accused is innocent until proven guilty in a court of law, and
2) the government has the burden of proving that an accused has committed the crime charged beyond a reasonable doubt.
