No License Suspension Secured for a Client Facing for Speeding and Traffic Violations at the RI Traffic Tribunal

October 2023

(1) Speeding 11+ mph
(2) Unlawful Sunscreen Material
(3) Failure to Use Turn Signal

Attorney Angelica Bovis of the the Marin, Barrett, and Murphy Law Firm was able to secure a successful result for a young client facing multiple traffic violations. The Client, a 20-year-old with a history of two speeding tickets exceeding 11 mph over the limit, encountered legal difficulties again when cited for speeding along with unlawful sunscreen material and failure to use a turn signal. This situation was critical, as it posed a significant risk of a license suspension.

Understanding the high stakes, Attorney Bovis approached the case with a strategic mindset. She undertook a comprehensive review of all the relevant details, including the client's driving history and the circumstances of the recent violations. Her efforts were focused on negotiating with the Judge and the Prosecutor to reach an amicable solution while emphasizing the potential impact of a license suspension on the young client's future. Attorney Bovis' diligent efforts and persuasive negotiation skills led to an extremely favorable outcome. The client's license was not suspended, and no additional penalties were imposed, a testament to the effective legal representation provided.
