Traffic & MVA Lawyer

Joseph H. LaMore, Jr. routinely prosecuted serious traffic violations, on behalf of the State of Maryland, while he was an Assistant State’s Attorney for Anne Arundel County. As a private defense lawyer, Mr. LaMore now represents clients on all types of traffic charges ranging from simple speeding tickets to more serious traffic offenses, such as DUI and driving while suspended.  Mr. LaMore also regularly represents clients whose driving privileges are at stake before the Maryland Motor Vehicle Administration (“MVA Hearings”).

An individual convicted of a traffic offense faces serious consequences, which may include fines, jail time, points on their driving record, increased insurance rates, and possibly a notice from the Maryland Motor Vehicle Administration (MVA) seeking to suspend, revoke or otherwise restrict their driving privileges.  An experienced lawyer can greatly assist in this process and help ensure a fair result.

Traffic Tickets

Mr. LaMore represents clients in all Maryland and Federal traffic offenses, including:

  • DUI / DWI (see “practice area” link above)
  • Driving while Suspended or Revoked
  • Speeding Tickets
  • Negligent or Reckless Driving
  • Driving Uninsured
  • Accident cases
  • All other traffic violations



Motor Vehicle Administration Hearings  ( MVA Hearing )

There are many situations whereby the MVA may take action against your license, one of which is if you accumulate a specified number of points on your driving record. In some instances, one offense alone is enough to suspend or revoke your license. However, prior to having your driving privilege suspended or revoked, you are entitled to a hearing, if you properly act to preserve this right in a timely fashion. Mr. LaMore has assisted many clients in presenting their case to the MVA and in protecting their driving privilege.

Mr. LaMore represents clients in traffic and MVA cases throughout the State of Maryland, and he handles cases in every Maryland County and Federal Court. The majority of his clients are from the following general locations: Annapolis, Glen Burnie, Baltimore, Severna Park, Pasadena, Towson, Catonsville, Essex, Columbia, Ellicott City, Upper Marlboro, Hyattsville, Laurel, Fort Meade, Crofton, Rockville, Centreville, Ocean City, Anne Arundel County, Baltimore County, Baltimore City, Prince George’s County, Howard County, Queen Anne’s County, Montgomery County, Carroll County, Harford County, Worcester County, Charles County and Calvert County.
