Sean Riley is an experienced traffic attorney practicing law in Washington, D.C. and Maryland. He has successfully represented hundreds of people charged with traffic offenses in D.C. Superior Court and moving violations at the D.C. DMV and Maryland District Courts. 

If you have been arrested for a criminal traffic offense in D.C. you should understand that in addition to your case in D.C. Superior Court you may also face separate civil sanctions or collateral consequences at the D.C. DMV. During your arrest if the police gave you an order of "proposed suspension or revocation" or a ticket for a moving violation you face the imposition of points and the potential loss of your D.C. license or your privilege to drive in D.C. (out of state drivers). Such matters are handled at the D.C. DMV and may only be challenged there.

In addition to a criminal record a conviction for a traffic offense may result in; a negative DMV record, the imposition of points, the suspension or revocation of your license, an increase in your car insurance, the loss of employment or security clearance, public humiliation and/or jail time. A diversion guilty plea or "DSA" in DC Superior Court could also lead to points on your license or the revocation of your license or privilege to drive in DC by the DC DMV. Therefore, it is essential for you to have a comprehensive legal strategy that addresses all the collateral consequences of your traffic case.
