Depending on the specifics of your case, a traffic ticket attorney can:

  • Provide Free Advice. If you’re not certain whether or not your ticket requires legal assistance, talking to an attorney allows you to better understand your rights and your options. If your ticket is minor, there is likely no reason to pay a lawyer. If your ticket could have far-reaching consequences, however, it may be best to secure representation
  • Negotiate Penalties. One of the primary jobs of a traffic ticket lawyer is negotiating penalties. This may include reducing fees and fines, keeping a ticket off of your driving record, or even having charges dismissed. If you are charged with DUI or an additional offense, your attorney may be necessary for helping you avoid jail time
  • Represent You in Court. If your case goes to trial, you will want an attorney on your side who can stand up for your best interests and fight for the most acceptable outcome

It is always a good idea to speak with an attorney before you pay a ticket. There are often alternatives to paying the full amount – even if you have priors – along with ways to prevent additional penalties and long-term problems.
