Traffic & Motor Vehicle Law

Reputable. Knowledgeable. Informed.

With a practice deeply rooted in Colorado, the law office of James J. Keil, Jr. takes pride in understanding the complexities of traffic and motor vehicle law. He offers clients the comfort of knowing that they are working with an experienced traffic law advocate and a lawyer who also serves as a municipal court judge. He provides comprehensive legal representation for the following types of traffic and motor vehicle cases:

Traffic violations

Trying to save five minutes in traffic can cost you hundreds of dollars in fines, costs, and rising insurance premiums. When accumulating points and insurance fees threaten to cause you more hassle than you can probably handle. An experienced attorney can help you get the charges reduced to a lesser offense or try the case if necessary. Jim Keil offers comprehensive legal representation on all municipal and county court traffic violations including, but not limited to: speeding, careless driving, failure to stop, driving without insurance, driving without a license and reckless driving.

License revocations

Under Colorado’s Express Consent Law, police officers have the right to request a breath, blood, or urine sample if they believe you are under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Depending on whether you take or decline these tests, the Department of Motor Vehicles can issue a revocation of your license for a year or more. In order to minimize the chances of having a license revocation, you should have legal advice and representation from an experienced attorney at all motor vehicle hearings. Jim has handled motor vehicle hearings for more than 30 years.

Driver’s license suspensions

The Department of Motor Vehicles has the right to suspend your license for up to a year whenever you accumulate too many points. In cases where mobility is crucial to your continued employment or your family’s survival, an experienced attorney can reduce the term of your suspension. Jim can protect your rights and reduce the length of your suspension. Call today to schedule a legal consultation.

When charged with DUI or DWAI, you face jail time, fines, insurance rate increases, and the loss of your driving privilege. In order to minimize these penalties and hardships, you need competent and experienced legal counsel to advise and represent you.

Under Colorado’s Express Consent Law, you agree to take a blood or breath test if you operate a motor vehicle. If you refuse the blood or breath test at the time of your arrest or have an alcohol content of 0.08 or more, your license is subject to revocation for up to a year.

For first-time offenders with an otherwise clean driving history, it may be possible to get the charges reduced to a lesser offense without resorting to courtroom litigation. When litigation is necessary, many defenses exist. Prescribed drug interactions may cause stronger symptoms of inebriation or intoxication. The testing device may have been faulty. Police procedure could be flawed.

Only a detailed analysis of your case can reveal whether you have a possible defense in court or at the Department of Motor Vehicles hearing. Contact the law office of James J. Keil, Jr. at 720.358.2172 to schedule a consultation with an experienced trial lawyer. The sooner you call, the better.
