Probably not, most of the time you show up in court yourself. There you explain your actions and try to state why you were wrongly fined. If its a complex case, (not sure on speeding tickets), you MIGHT have a case. * If the violator has previous traffic convictions and is in danger of having his or her license suspended or revoked it might be prudent to retain legal representation or at least obtain legal advice.

Yes, it most likely is legal -- it would depend on your state laws.

The only thing the prosecutor would need to do is to have the issuing officer testify to confirm the date of issue.

Can a lawyer really get me out of a speeding ticket?

A lawyer may be able to get you out of a speeding ticket. If your driving record is clean and there is any type of discrepancy with the reason you recieved the ticket. For example, a discrepancy with the posted limit, the radar gun or the weather may all be enough to get you out of the ticket. However, for a lawyer just to be in court with you is not enough. It depends on the situation. They will do everything in their power to fight the ticket or get you out for as little as possible. Lawyers aren't cheap though.

How do you contest a will from prison?

You cannot contest a will at all if there is a no contest clause, or else the benefactor who made the contest will be entirely disinherited. One of the requirements for contesting a will it that you somehow have a connection to the will and feel harmed by its contents. You either have to be named in the will, but feel that you should have inherited differently, or weren't named in the will and should have been named in it or would have received money if the person had died without a will. You must have a valid reason to challenge a will, such as undue influence, fraud, mistake, or loss of mental capacity of the testator. Simply being upset with your inheritance amount isn't an actual reason to contest a will. If you find that you cannot contest the will, you can file a lawsuit against the person who is receiving the property you think should be yours when the creator of the will is still alive. It depends on the State in which a person is incarcerated as to the procedure of contesting a person's will. In most cases, getting in touch with a lawyer should be a great start.
