Have you been caught speeding? Careless driving? Running a red light or stop sign? Or any other civil infraction what do you do? Most people who get traffic tickets pay them. This is a big mistake. If you pay the ticket you will get points assessed against your license and it will be a permanent mark on your driving record. Also your insurance rates will go up. And if you get too many points during a particular point in time, your license will be suspended.
There is no reason for anyone to have these penalties against them. The easiest way to avoid the points and the increased insurance rates is to hire a lawyer as soon as you get the ticket. A lawyer will be able to ensure you do not get points on your license or face any other penalties. The cost of hiring a lawyer for a traffic ticket is relatively inexpensive. Normally you can get a lawyer to represent you for about $100 to $200 dollars. The fee you pay will depend on your prior driving record. Also if you hire a lawyer you will not have to go to court, the lawyer can go for you. This means you don’t have to miss a day of work or waste time going to court. So the cost of hiring a lawyer is more than justified.
How does the lawyer do this for you? First if you have a defensible case the lawyer will know all of the nuisances of getting you out of the ticket. If you don’t have a viable defense, the lawyer will get you a withhold of adjudication. A withhold means you will have no points on your record. If you don’t get the points it means it will not be reported to your insurance company. Most of the time the court will offer the withholding of adjudication. The lawyer will accept the plea for you. So you get no points, no increase in insurance rates. Everybody’s situation is different, so hire a lawyer to assess your particular ticket and advise you how to get out of it.
