The one thing that everyone should know about a speeding ticket or any other minor traffic infraction is that “paying off” the ticket is pleading guilty to the original charges. An officer may tell a motorist that they can just “pay it off” when a citation is issued. By “paying off” a ticket, you are forfeiting any negotiations for a reduction. Do not forfeit this opportunity without first speaking to an attorney. We may be able to help.
There are several ways in which hiring an attorney can be beneficial. For most speeding violations, an attorney can appear on your behalf without you having to appear in Court; therefore, you will not miss a day of work while you are sitting in Court. We do not charge any additional attorney fees for appearing on your behalf. Another benefit of hiring an attorney is having someone to negotiate with the District Attorney to see if your charges can be reduced or consolidated. When a ticket is reduced or charges are consolidated, this may help with license and insurance points.
