Achieved the best possible results - thank you Matt!
Attorney Matthew Marin did an outstanding job managing our son’s case through to a not guilty verdict. He was able to analyze the situation and have key evidence removed due to procedural errors and engaging an expert witness during pre-trial. His guidance to challenge the charges led us through an extended process during covid19 times – Matt persevered. His factual cross examination also contributed to an objective, not guilty verdict. Matt was great to work with and broke down an emotional, complex situation into easily understandable facts. We would highly recommend his services.

One phone call and 30 days later my record was expunged
I made the call to see if it was possible to get my record expunged. Talked to an assistant and I received a call back from Mr Marin very quickly. He told me everything I should expect and what I needed to do. With covid still being a problem he told me I didn’t even have to go to court. He told me the day the court date was set for and to wait for an email to go over how it went. The day came and as he said I received the email explaining everything went as planned. Painless for me and I wish I did it sooner. He was very professional and did everything he said he was going to do. GREAT EXPERIENCE!

Legal Answers
5 Questions Answered
Q. Will it be easier to hire a lawyer to request 'good driving record' plea?
A: In Rhode Island, a Lawyer can represent you at the Rhode Island Traffic Tribunal to enter an admission seeking dismissal under the good driving statute. If you are leaving the Country, it is in your best interest to get your affairs in order with the lawyer well before you leave. In the alternative, you can seek a continuance on your ticket until you return to the Country. To do that, you would need to talk to the Traffic Court Prosecution Officer with the Police Department that issued you the ticket.
Q. Will a judge accept the 3 year clean record if I was a month away from 3 years clean?
A: In that situation I believe that it is worth the shot. While you may not be technically eligible for application of the Good Driving Statute, they Prosecutor and the Judge may give you some leeway since you are so close. As always, your best bet is with an experienced traffic court attorney by your side advocating for your.
Q. If someone can't afford the price of the speeding ticket they got are they able to work it off with community service?
A: Unfortunately, the Rhode Island Traffic Tribunal does not exchange community service in lieu of court fines and court costs.
