At one time or another, it happens to everyone. You are driving along and all the 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 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 your insurance costs, and may be able to get your ticket dismissed.
If you are like most people, you probably are not familiar with the language and routines of traffic court proceedings. This puts 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 case well. Lawyers who work with traffic violations can dramatically increase your chances of winning your case.Fees are typically much less than the increase in insurance premiums you might experience if you did not contest the ticket.
