Fighting Misdemeanor Charges in Alaska

There are traffic tickets and then there are traffic crimes. The latter cannot be resolved by simply paying a fine. A conviction can result in jail time, lengthy suspension of your license and other long-term consequences.

The Law Offices of Dan Allan & Associates helps clients across Alaska fight misdemeanors or minimize the impact of these charges. Call our Anchorage law firm immediately at 907-205-4874 to learn your rights and discuss your options.

We Take Misdemeanor Allegations Seriously and Provide a Strong Defense

We have favorably resolved all types of major traffic violations:

  • Driving on a suspended license
  • Driving without insurance
  • Leaving the scene of an accident (hit and run)
  • Reckless driving
  • Operating under the influence of alcohol or drugs

We have also represented clients facing felony charges for auto accidents resulting in injury, including felony hit-and-run charges.

Limiting the Damage

A misdemeanor conviction will go on your criminal record and count against you for any future arrests. Driving after license suspension will usually carry jail time, as will a hit and run if there were injuries. Your license could be suspended for a year or revoked for several years, depending on circumstances.

Our attorneys have a cumulative 60 years of experience. In any traffic misdemeanor, they look at probable cause for the traffic stop and whether the case was appropriately charged. In many cases, we have convinced the prosecutor to drop the charges because of rights violations. In other cases, we have negotiated with prosecutors to reduce the charges to a non-misdemeanor offense. Our priority is to avoid jail and preserve your driving privileges, or at least minimize the sentence or suspension.

If you are stopped, cited or arrested for a serious traffic violation, do not try to talk your way out of it. You will only help the state make its case. Exercise your right to remain silent and call our misdemeanor defense lawyers at 907-205-4874. You may also contact us online to request a free initial consultation. We take cases in Anchorage and throughout Alaska. We are conveniently located in the Dimond Center.
