At one time or another, it happens to everyone. You are driving along and all of a sudden you see the flash of red lights behind you. You are being pulled over for a traffic violation. Do you fight it? Show up in court? Or put the check or money order for the fine in the mail to the court?
In many cases, an attorney can help you keep your license if it is in jeopardy, may help reduce or maintain your current insurance costs, and may be able to get your traffic violation ticket dismissed to avoid those penalties associated with your ticket.
If you are like most people, you probably are not familiar with the language and routines of traffic court proceedings. This can put you at a distinct disadvantage because you likely will be opposing a police officer who has been to traffic court on numerous occasions and knows how to present his or her traffic case well. Lawyers who work with traffic violations can dramatically increase your chances of winning your case. Additionally, fees for law services are typically much less than the major increase in insurance premiums you might experience if you did not contest the ticket.
