Why You Should Hire a Lawyer for Your Traffic Citation
You may not know it, but when you receive a moving violation, you enter into an area of the law where negotiation is more the rule than the exception. The officer will not tell you that and that is why most people just pay the citation rather than taking it to court.
The problem is when you pay the fine and send it to the court you are in affect pleading guilty. Pleading guilty is a conviction which will result in points being placed on your driving record, and they will remain on your driving record for thirty-six (36) months and having points will cause your insurance premiums to increase.
Although no lawyer can guarantee an outcome, I have been successful due to my experience as a deputy sheriff and former prosecutor, with securing the outcome my clients want.
