Can I Afford An Attorney?

Many people feel that hiring a lawyer is very expensive and may not be worth it for a simple traffic ticket.

When it comes to simple traffic infractions such as speeding tickets, red light violations, stop signs, etc. we charge a flat rate. This fee includes one court appearance where we plead you not guilty and set a trial date, request discovery, and a second court appearance for trial. By hiring us to contest your ticket, you are not required to make any court appearances.

Please keep in mind more serious traffic offenses such as DUI’s, reckless driving, driving on suspended driver’s license are considered more serious offenses and the defense costs vary depending on the offense. Please contact us to discuss these more serious offenses.

Many drivers try and contest their driving tickets on their own. This is possible to do but keep in mind the procedure usually involves a two step process. First you must go to court plead not guilty and set a trial date. Then you must come back for the trial date to fight your case. Therefore, you must make two court appearances. Additionally there are certain rules and procedures that you will not be aware of, and these rules and procedures could greatly increase your chances of success.

For a flat rate we will make both court appearances for you. Having to take two days off from work could easily cost you more than the flat rate. Contact one of our expert traffic lawyers at 619-708-2073.
