How a Lawyer Can Help if You Have Been Accused of a Traffic Violation

If you’ve been pulled over for a traffic violation, you may think that the easiest and smartest way to respond is to simply sign off on the ticket, write a check for the amount cited, send it in and forget about it. After all, if you don’t respond that way you have to take off a day of work to go to court – and besides, there’s always the chance you may actually have been doing what the officer has accused you of doing. The truth is that when you pay the ticket and sign on the dotted line, you are doing more than just paying a fine. You are pleading guilty without putting up any kind of defense at all, and that guilty plea may end up costing you much more than the amount you’d be writing a check for. Different traffic offenses carry different consequences, and even if it’s just a speeding ticket it can lead to points on your driving record that can accumulate and cost you your license or add to the costs of your car insurance premiums. If you’ve been accused of a traffic violation, the smartest thing you can do is to contact an experienced attorney from Wallace Law to discuss the options that are available to you.

The attorneys at Wallace Law will carefully review the details of your traffic citation, asking you detailed questions so that they fully understand what happened at the time that you got your ticket. They will then advise you on how to plea and tell you what you can expect. They will represent you in municipal court, offering you your best chance of avoiding the harshest penalties. This is particularly important if you already have points on your license, if you are certain that you did not break the law and want to clear your name, or if a guilty plea would result in a serious consequence such as the loss of your ability to drive, or jail time.

Having an experienced traffic violation lawyer acting as your counsel and advocate gives you the best chance of having the charges against you dropped or proving yourself innocent. Call the attorneys at Wallace Law and set up an appointment to discuss the best way to address your traffic violation.
