DON'T LET YOUR INSURANCE GO UP WITH A SPEEDING TICKET
When deciding whether to fight a ticket you must consider whether paying the fine and perhaps dealing with other penalties such as points on your license and/or a driver improvement course causes less stress than appearing maybe more than once in court, possibly missing work and in the end not getting a good deal. You may want to consult with an experienced Traffic Ticket Attorney. Usually, a consult is free, so what can you lose. An attorney will collect facts from you and will discuss your options. He will be fluid in the local traffic code and will most likely be familiar with the police officers and judges who handle such cases. It is to your benefit to walk into court with a lawyer or more likely your traffic lawyer will appear for you, saving you time. An experienced lawyer works to reduce your traffic ticket penalties, negotiate alternative penalties, and/or dismiss the ticket altogether. When you choose a traffic attorney, make sure to find out his experience (just out of law school vs. 20 years in the industry). Ask about his success rate in getting tickets dismissed, fines reduced or dropped, or any other penalties lessened or waived. When you are fighting a ticket ask yourself how involved you want to be. Do you want all the burden off you or do you want to be more involved? With these factors, you should be able to choose the right traffic ticket lawyer for fighting your ticket.
