Thurow Law can defend clients who are facing traffic crimes such as:
The consequences of being convicted of a criminal traffic violation is far greater than just a civil traffic infraction. You generally do not have the choice of just paying a fine and moving on with your life. You will also have a criminal record/criminal history with a misdemeanor or felony conviction. You don’t just pay a fine without further consequences if convicted. These consequences can have a far-reaching impact on your personal and professional life. You may face increased insurance rates or denied coverage, jail time, and points on your driving record that may lead to a suspension as they accumulate.
Having a suspended or revoked driver’s license can have a negative impact on your quality of life. Not being able to drive may limit your potential & possibilities, and expose you to further legal problems if you continue to driver with a suspended or revoked driver’s license. Thurow Law offers free Driver’s License Restoration consultations. Contact Thurow Law with your DL number today to take the first step in getting your driver’s license reinstated.
You may have recently received a notice in the mail informing you that your driver’s license has been suspended or revoked for five years because you are a Habitual Traffic Offender.

Before practicing criminal defense, Attorney Todd Thurow spent more than a decade as a police officer patrolling the streets and investigating crimes. He is very familiar with the traffic statures in the State of Florida, police procedures, and the type of evidence required to prove criminal traffic cases. Attorney Thurow will evaluate the circumstances of the traffic stop and attempt to get any unlawfully obtained evidence suppressed by filing a motion and having a hearing challenging the lawful basis of the officer’s traffic stop. One way to get evidence suppressed is to challenge the lawful basis of the traffic stop. If the court rules that the traffic stop was unlawful, then the evidence and/or knowledge gathered after the unlawful stop will be suppressed or thrown out and in many instances, the case is dismissed. Don’t assume that the officer acted properly and there’s nothing that can be done. Having Thurow Law working on your side can go a long way in protecting your driving record and future.
Thurow Law serves clients all across the west coast of Florida, including but not limited to Pasco County, Hernando County, Hillsborough County, Pinellas County, and Polk County.
