    Accused of speeding 26 - 34 miles per hour over speed limit, Class B Misdemeanor is a jailable offense and can carry a fine up to $1500. Over 34 mph over the speed limit is a Class A, jailable offense with fines up to $2500. Our firm covers all speeding classes from petty offenses to misdemeanor offenses.

Mr. Walker was my husbands and I real estate attorney. He did an extraordinary job. From the beginning to the end, the process was stress free. Mr. Walker was a constant professional, but always accessible to answer any questions. We recommend Mr. Walker to our friends and family if they need an attorney for what ever the case may be.

I would recommend Mr. Walker for any case. He represented my son on a recent case which resulted in positive results. He was able to move on with his life and put this behind him. Martin is an extreme professional who always looks at the big picture and delivers results! Thanks for all your support. S Cade
