Attorneys and Traffic Tickets

Why do you hire an attorney when you get a ticket? There are reasons. But they may not be what you think.

Here’s why you you should hire an attorney:

On a simple speeding ticket, depending on the county, you generally don’t have to appear in court. That’s normally worth the fee all by itself.

We know the different outcomes that are likely to be available, but more importantly, we actually know what the effect of those outcomes might be on your license and your insurance rates. You guys and your interweb research normally don’t know that as well.

We know what PJC stands for, but more importantly, we know when to use it and when not to. It’s not the panacea you might have been told that it is.

These are NOT reasons to hire an attorney for your speeding ticket:

We don’t just make them go away. Most of us work above-board with ADAs in court that do the same, so you aren’t getting any special deal; we’re just using our knowledge and expertise to get you the best deal that we can under the circumstances.

We don’t do your homework for you. Sometimes the ADA wants you to jump through some hoops to earn a break. If that’s the case, you have to jump through the hoops. We don’t.

If you have a compliance type ticket (expired registration, no insurance, no inspection…) you have to take care of that and get us the documentation to prove it. That’s not something we can do.

If you have a ticket in Orange, Chatham, or Alamance Counties, please call me and I’ll tell you what I can do, what I can’t do, and what you might expect. Yes, I’ll do my best to help but you can also expect to have some responsibility on your part. Just keepin it real, y’all.
