While getting traffic violations is fairly routine for anyone that drives regularly, some people could find themselves in some serious situations if they get multiple violations or do not pay back the fines as required. For those that find themselves in some legal issues because of the violations, hiring an attorney to help them out would be a good idea.

The first situation when you would want to hire an attorney to help you with traffic violations would be when you feel you are innocent, and need to be defended. If you have received a serious traffic violation, and feel that you should have it expunged from your record, then getting a traffic attorney to help you in court would be a good idea. An attorney will be more comfortable and experienced talking to judge and in front of a courtroom, so they will have a better chance of receiving a successful determination.

The second situation when you would want to hire an attorney to help you with traffic violations is when you have a lot of violations on your record, and need to negotiate a repayment plan. Many states and communities would prefer to receive all of the outstanding violations in full, but most are willing to negotiate a payment plan for those that cannot afford to make a lump sum payment. An attorney will be able to negotiate the repayment terms, the initial down payment, and could possibly even negotiate a reduction to the total amount that you owe.

The third situation whey you would want to hire an attorney would be when you have had your driving privileges taken away, and need to get them back. Most likely you have either had your driving privileges taken away because you have either received too many violations or you have not paid the outstanding balance. If you have had your license suspended, the attorney could help you by either negotiating a reduced balanced that you need to pay or negotiate a way for you to receive the right to driver earlier than you would otherwise receive. The attorney may also be able to get you the right to drive for necessary purposes, such as to work or school.

Anytime you have a traffic violation court appearance, that may not be valid, I would suggest you hire a traffic attorney.


That depends on the circumstances. In an emergency, of course. For other situations you should consult with an attorney or an advocate at the court.That depends on the circumstances.

Most traffic attorney work the same way. Look for one who will give you a free consultation and flat rates.


No. Traffic violations are not important on a job application, unless the job is for driving. Like a schoolbus or truck.


The first step is generally to contact the infringer directly, with a cease and desist notice. If you are not satisfied with the result, you should then begin working with an experienced copyright attorney.

Obviously, the average person will receive at least one traffic violation ticket in their lifetime. Hundreds of different violations are on the law books in various states. A person should always check their state's laws in order to make sure they know what to not do on the roads. Obviously, nobody wants a traffic ticket because it goes on a person's driving record and can cost some money. Avoiding these violations is more than important.

It depends whether they were traffic felonies or attempted murder. You should talk to your attorney about sentencing guidelines.


If a police officer issues you a traffic violation, you have several alternatives. Accept the ticket as gracefully as possible when you are dealing with the officer, though. Arguing about a violation that is being issued during a traffic stop can hurt your chances of having the ticket reversed at a later date. Belligerence with a police officer can also lead to more expensive citations than the original traffic violation would have been. If the officer hands you a ticket, take it and be on your way as quickly as possible. Traffic Court Everyone who is issued a traffic violation has the right to argue that violation in traffic court. Each city or county in the United States has small courtrooms set up so that a judge can listen to traffic complaints and make rulings. These courts are not the same as criminal courts. There is no jury, and most of the people filing complaints do not have attorneys with them to argue their cases. A single judge will listen to your side of the story and decide whether or not the traffic violation was valid. When to get an Attorney It is possible to hire an attorney who is an expert in traffic law to represent you at traffic court. The attorney will stand before the judge as your representative and state your case. It is not uncommon for an attorney who specializes in traffic cases to get a traffic violation overturned or removed from your record. The best time to seek an attorney is when you believe that you did not deserve the traffic violation. You should also seek an attorney if the fine is exorbitant or the ticket would cause your insurance rates to increase a great deal. The attorney will be able to tell you whether you have a decent case or not before you hire him or her. What to Expect Your traffic violation should list the time and place of the local traffic court. You should expect to find a line of people waiting to see the judge when you arrive at the courtroom. Traffic courts move very quickly, so be prepared to speak as soon as it is your turn to see the judge. You need to be aware that there will be court costs involved whether you win your case or not. The judge typically makes a decision while you wait and then moves on to the next person in line.

Not sure. Have you inquired about going to Traffic School? If you complete Traffic School, most moving violations will be erased from your driving record (in California anyway) and won't affect your insurance rates. If you haven't been to Traffic School in the last 18 months, then you should contact the Traffic Court and request it immediately. If you qualify, then you will be given a list of Traffic Schools you may attend. Traffic school can be done online at your own pace and for for under $30.00. Hope this helps.
