The benefits of hiring a lawyer for traffic violations
Did you know that Americans pay billions of dollars worth of parking and speeding tickets each year? A lot of times, it is an avoidable expense if you know how to argue your case properly. A lawyer that is proficient in traffic laws can help you gather proper evidence and build a compelling case for you.
Collecting evidence and organizing the paperwork to build a sound case can be quite tedious for some violations. If, for example, traffic cameras caught your alleged offense, obtaining the footage can be quite a lengthy process if you’re new to the process. A lawyer, however, will have a lot of experience liaising with the relevant agencies to obtain traffic camera videos with much less effort.
Another misconception about traffic lawyers is that it’s not worth the cost of hiring one. Actually, a lawyer can save you money in the long run, by fighting for your violation to not end up on your record. More points on your driving record will allow insurance companies to charge you higher premiums.
Where can I find a good traffic lawyer?
You use a variety of sources to search for a great lawyer, such as asking friends or family and searching online. Start by searching for lawyers in the jurisdiction of your offense. Only these lawyers have a better understanding of the traffic codes in the area. They will also know more about officers who issue tickets, and if they have a history of unfairly giving people parking tickets.
If you choose us, we will do our utmost to fight your NYC parking ticket. It’s crucial that you find out about their experience and how many successful cases they filed. Do they have knowledge and experience in dealing with your specific type of violation?
Great lawyers should be able to give you a list of past clients you can contact to see their satisfaction with their legal services. The state has excellent legal teams to argue against you, and you should have one to fight for you too.
What happens if my case goes to trial?
It’s not ideal for your case to go to trial, and your lawyer should work to get a dismissal or a lenient penalty instead. Going to trial means you’ll have to show up at court hearings and spend far more money on legal fees.
Going to trial without a lawyer is also not a good idea. You want someone fluent in traffic law to go up against a prosecutor.
