My primary focus it to provide excellent representation in criminal defense. I maintain a small practice so I am able to provide individual attention to all my clients. I always return my phone calls within 24 hours and I am available by phone on evenings and weekends. When someone is charged with a crime, they need someone with experience who is willing to give them attention and explain their rights. My promise to my clients is that they will always know the status of thier case and I am there to walk them through this process step by step.
Protecting the Rights of Clients Accused of Moving Violations If you are arrested or given a ticket for a traffic violation, you could receive points on your driver’s license and, in some cases, a criminal record. Depending on the facts of your case, an experienced lawyer may help you to avoid or reduce these consequences. Vicki M. Carriker is a Memphis DUI and traffic attorney serving clients in Shelby County and beyond. As a criminal defense lawyer, she has extensive experience representing clients who are charged with drunk driving, speeding and other serious traffic offenses. Helping Clients Fight All Types of Tennessee Traffic Charges The Tennessee criminal and motor vehicle codes define a wide range of traffic offenses, also known as moving violations. These offenses are considered criminal. Most are misdemeanors, but some are felonies. Some of the most common and most serious traffic offenses include: Driving under the influence (DUI) (driving while intoxicated by alcohol or drugs) Speeding (driving at a speed above the posted speed limit or the statewide default limits) Reckless driving (driving with no regard for the safety of people or property) Driving while suspended (driving on a public road after your license has been suspended) Driving without insurance (driving in violation of the Financial Responsibility Law) A conviction for any of these offenses could have a long-term impact on your driving privileges. Certain offenses, including DUI, may also result in a jail sentence. And if you ignore a traffic ticket, your driver’s license could be suspended automatically without any notification.
