What are the benefits of hiring a traffic attorney?
Many people weigh the cost of paying a fine against the cost of appealing a traffic ticket when deciding whether to fight it. In truth, that doesn’t give us an accurate picture of the situation. During our consultation with you, a traffic ticket lawyer will review the big picture, including:
High traffic fines
Just accepting a ticket will result in increased penalties. In some cases, you could be facing hundreds of dollars in fines, especially if this is not your first offense or if you received a ticket for more than one infraction.
Driver's license suspended or revoked
If you get more traffic tickets down the road, having this ticket on your record could result in your license being suspended or revoked. Our experienced traffic ticket attorneys will develop a plan for keeping your license if you’re already facing the possibility of losing one, such as for a DUI.
Getting points on your driving record
Your driving record is impacted by the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) points system. Your driving record is affected each time you receive a ticket for an infraction. (A single violation can result in multiple points.) If your license total reaches 12, the DMV will suspend it. Maintaining a clean driving record is crucial to not losing your license.
Increasing insurance premiums
When considering the long-term cost of a ticket, you should always factor in how much your insurance premiums will increase as your license points increase. The traffic ticket lawyers at Montgomery & Hart have successfully fought thousands of unfair traffic tickets. Contact us today to get started.
