Top 8 Reasons To Hire A Lawyer for a Traffic Ticket

  1. If you plead guilty as charged or in other words pay the ticket after an officer has given you one, then you can expect points on your driving record.

  2. If you have points on your license already if you plead guilty, then you may run into a situation where your license is suspended or revoked due to an accumulation of points.

  3. If you plead guilty you can expect your insurance rates to increase significantly. Your insurance premium will sky rocket--you don't need or want those problems.

  4. Save time! Yes, sitting in court for hours on end trying to ask for a continuance or trying to negotiate with your city or county's stuffy prosecutor is not only a huge headache for those who are not attorneys but it's also a huge time investment.

  5. An attorney-if they are a good one--will work extremely hard on getting you the best deal possible. This may include no fines or court cost and/or may include a reduction to a non-moving (no point) violation.

  6. An attorney is well versed in the law and will be able to make sure you were charged appropriately and that no constitutional rights were violated as a result of your ticket. State highway patrol tickets have heavy fines and usually result in more points on your license--why even fuss and fight with that.....Hire a lawyer.

  7. Some traffic tickets may result in an automatic loss of your license and you could be in jeopardy of losing your job--especially if driving is an essential function of your job (i.e. you work for fedex, ups, usps, amazon driver, bus driver, daycare driver, or delivery driver)

  8. Hoping a cop does not show up to court and praying your ticket gets dismissed is highly and I mean highly unlikely.Now a days with so much technology and body cams even if the cop does not show--the State likely has discovery that may incriminate you or place you on the scene. So, a cop not showing may actually be the least of your worries.
