Fines for §1180(f) - Speeding in a Construction Zone

by Seth Azria on 6/14/2018

Understandably, speeding in a construction zone can be a sensitive subject with prosecutors and therefore plea bargaining for a reduction is often more difficult.

  • $180 - $300 - For 11-30 mph over the limit. Up to 30 days in jail.

Speeding ticket reduced to 0 points

Mr. Bruffett took care of my ticket -- reducing a 4 point ticket to 0 points (with reduced fines, as well). He and his staff were pleasant to work with and I highly recommend them.

Very Quick and Easy!

I called Mr. Azria due to a speeding ticket in another county. He gave me a price quote upfront and within a few days had gotten my 4 point offense reduced to a non-moving violation. All in all I only had to email him the ticket information and pay him a very reasonable fee(which I was able to do online). He did the rest, very convenient. He was very quick to respond to me and readily available if needed. Mr Azria also contacted me with updates via both email and regular mail. I am very satisfied with his services and will use him if needed in the future.

Better than I hoped for

I hired Mr. Habib to represent me in my recent DWI case on the recommendation of a friend. He handled my case professionally and with great knowledge of the process. I consider his experience as a former assistant DA to be one of his best assets. Knowing the other side of the system as well as he does allows him to apply a strong and efficient strategy to achieve the best possible outcome for there defendant, and quickly. Mr. Habib was able to get my criminal charge reduced to a violation, other tickets were dropped, and even got the fine reduced by several hundred dollars, all in just two court dates. I feel very fortunate to have received the outcome I did, and Mr. Habib was 100% responsible for that.

What A Find!

I received a four point ticket and googled attorney's to choose who could handle my case, being that I was not local to the county in which I received the Summons. I found Seth Azria's Law firm and read the testimonials. I liked what I read and reached out to him. After retaining his services, I found the testimonials to be spot on. My ticket was reduced to a non point, non moving violation. Later on my son received the same type ticket with the same outcome. Very pleased with the services that he provided.
