West Palm Beach Criminal Defense Lawyer
Comprehensive, Skilled & Dedicated

West Palm Beach Traffic Crimes Lawyer

Dedicated. Aggressive. Ready to Fight.

If you've been accused of a traffic crime, you could face more than just a fine. These offenses can be charged as either misdemeanors or felonies, which may result in incarceration on top of a monetary penalty. Additionally, a conviction for a criminal traffic offense may have collateral consequences – those that are not imposed by a court but can severely limit a person's life. For instance, a felony conviction may lead to difficulties getting or retaining a job or finding a place to live. Because the impacts may be life-changing and long-lasting, you need a lawyer on your side who can work toward minimizing or avoiding the penalties.

At the Law Offices of Greg Rosenfeld, our West Palm Beach traffic crimes attorney is ready to provide the legal representation you need. We believe in the presumption of innocence, and we work hard to uncover the facts of your case to develop an innovative strategy and challenge the accusations made against you. Having handled over 50 trials and obtained favorable results for past clients, our lawyer knows what it takes to effectively fight charges. Whether your case can be settled out of court or must be presented in front of a judge or jury, we will leverage our knowledge and resources to work toward achieving your goals.

Defending All Types of Traffic Crimes

In Florida, if a person commits an offense while driving a motor vehicle, they may be charged with a crime.

Several situations can lead to a traffic crime charge, including, but not limited to:

  • Driving while license suspended: If a person knowingly operates a vehicle while their driver's license is suspended, revoked, or canceled, they could be charged with a second-degree misdemeanor. For subsequent offenses, the charge can be prosecuted as a first-degree misdemeanor or third-degree felony.
  • Fleeing or attempting to elude a law enforcement officer: It's illegal for a driver to intentionally fail to stop for an officer after they have been signaled to do so. This offense can be charged as a first, second, or third-degree felony, which carries punishments that include imprisonment and fines.
  • Leaving the scene of an accident: Drivers involved in accidents must stop their vehicles near the scene and fulfill their legal duties, such as exchanging information and providing reasonable assistance. Failing to do so may result in a second-degree misdemeanor if property damage occurred, a third-degree felony if someone was injured, a second-degree felony if serious injury resulted, or a first-degree felony if the accident resulted in death.
  • Racing on a highway: In Florida, a person cannot participate in a “street race,” whether as a driver, passenger, or facilitator. The offense is a misdemeanor, and the penalties vary depending on the specifics of the circumstances.
  • Reckless driving: Operating a vehicle in a manner that shows a willful disregard for the safety of others is punishable by up to 6 months in jail and/or a fine of up to $1,000. If property damage is caused, the offense is a first-degree misdemeanor. If serious bodily injury results, it's a third-degree felony.
  • Vehicular homicide: A felony charge can be levied against a person who recklessly operates a vehicle in manner that is likely to cause great bodily injury or death to another.

  • Attorney Rosenfeld was a godsend for us.

    “Attorney Rosenfeld was a godsend for us. Our daughter had been in Florida for several years trying to overcome an opioid addiction. In 2015 she made a huge mistake due to financial hardship and attempted to shoplift. She was caught and was facing 2 felony charges. With a year sober and a steady job a public defender tried to get her a reduced sentence. She made at least a half-dozen court appearances and had since moved out of state but the prosecutor refused to budge. Our daughter had since obtained her commercial real estate license and had become engaged to be married. A felony conviction would have ended her career before it started. On the recommendation of a public defender we contacted and retained Attorney Rosenfeld with a court date and an irate prosecutor only days away. His compassion, and intimate knowledge of the Palm Beach court system and it’s judges and prosecutors enabled him to strike a deal that gave our daughter the chance of having the charges dropped after 6 months while submitting to 50 hours of community service and random drug testing. And he did so at a very reasonable cost. If you or a loved one need legal representation in the Palm Beach area, Attorney Rosenfeld is the one to call.”

  • I would recommend his services to anyone!

    “I currently have several felony arrests and not one felony conviction on my record. Greg has gone the extra mile in every situation where I've used his services. The genuine level of care for his clients is evident from the first meeting you have with him. In my situation anything Greg said he would be able to for my case he did. I was confident throughout the entire legal process that the outcome would be the best possible given my charges. I would recommend his services to anyone.”

  • I would without a doubt refer Greg!

    “Greg was so amazingly awesome! He most definitely got the job done for me. Before hiring Greg I was beyond stressed about my case, I was at a stand still on what to do next to resolve it. As soon as I got him on my side all of the stress disappeared. He handled everything with such ease, constantly kept me in the loop and explained everything to me in a way I could understand. I would without a doubt refer Greg to anyone looking for an outstanding attorney!”

  • If you want the best chances hire him and his law firm. You wont regret it i sure didn't.

    “I had a spoken with Mr Rosenfeld and felt extremely confident in him. Hired him the same day and within 3 weeks times he resolved everything i needed done. His price is 1/20 of what my previous attorney got paid and Mr Rosenfeld went far and beyond for me even with prosecutor upjecting we won i owe him everything thank you. If you want the best chances hire him and his law firm. You wont regret it i sure didn't.”

  • Outstanding attorney!

    “Greg Rosenfeld was always on point! He brought the true meaning of bringing Justice to the case. His closing statement was factual and indisputable. I would recommend Greg to anyone seeking legal help from an attorney that is dedicated and doesn’t quit.”

  • Very responsive and available.

    “This guy is fantastic. There isn't another attorney I would rather have standing next to me in the courtroom. His straight shooter, no nonsense approach was reassuring. I knew I had hired the right guy when, at our first court appearance he was praised (almost gushed over) by the judge for his "excellent writing abilities" and someone with a "bright future ahead". At that moment I knew Greg was my man. What other lawyer responds to a mistaken text sent at 11:30pm? Outstanding service. Very responsive and available. Unpaid endorsement from a satisfied client.”

  • Highly recommend Greg!

    “I don’t believe that words can put into perspective just how much Greg has helped me this last year. Not only did he assist me with other legal matters (driver license reinstatement, traffic tickets etc) that were unrelated to the serious felonies I was facing, he was happy to do so, and did it with compassion and loving kindness. I was facing two second degree felonies and a couple of third degree felonies, and at times would stress to the point of anxiety attacks. highly recommend Greg!”
