Having the Right Advocates for Traffic Matters
Some people assume that because there is not so much of a liberty interest for infractions of traffic laws, the cases are not as important. Going through the traffic Court process can seem like a waste of time, which is why many people plead guilty and pay a fine just to get it over with. This is the worst thing you could do. There are traffic offenses that are misdemeanors and felonies, but even if you haven’t been charged with one of the more serious offenses, the fact of the matter is, being charged with traffic violations can impact your life to a great degree.
Convictions in traffic Court can affect your insurance premiums and your driving record. Your driving license could be suspended so that even your livelihood could be jeopardized if your employment requires you to drive.
What Attorneys Can Do for You in Traffic Court
Having legal representation can make a significant difference in the outcome of your case. If your traffic matter goes to trial, witnesses will be questioned, exhibits entered, legal arguments crafted and made, just as in criminal Court. Like a criminal trial, rules of evidence and case law apply.
In many cases, a seasoned traffic Court lawyer like Dean DelCollo or Dade Werb will help you negotiate your traffic ticket down so that you enter a plea to a lesser offense. They can also help reduce your fine or secure for you a process that will clear the offense from your driving record. This way, if you are charged with a traffic infraction in the future, taking responsibility for this one won’t have as much of a detrimental impact on your record than if you “cop” to the offense as charged.
For those who do not live locally, our attorneys can represent you in traffic Court so that you don’t have to return to the jurisdiction to deal with the matter. This could even save you a significant amount of time and money in travel costs if you live far away. If you decide to represent yourself in traffic Court, our attorneys can assess your case, help you prepare your defense, and even coach you for your submissions in Court. This way, you have the guidance to know what testimony to draw out of witnesses, what the real issues are in your case, and what points you need to cover when you address the Court.
