Many times those charged with traffic tickets simply pay them and forget. When you pay a traffic citation, you are pleading guilty to that charge and will accrue points for the violation. If you amass 12 points within 2 years, you may have your driver’s license suspended. Additionally, certain violations can have automatic suspensions associated with conviction. Those include: DUI/DWI, leaving the scene of an accident, no insurance, eluding an officer, speeding > 25 over limit, and racing.
Defendants often believe that since they were guilty of the offense, there is nothing an attorney can do to assist. That is generally incorrect. An attorney may point out flaws in the case and has knowledge of potential alternate dispositions. Alternate dispositions may include a plea to a lesser or alternate charge, state or county traffic school or judicial diversion.
While a majority of my criminal practice deals with much larger cases, Michael Bouldin still finds time to represent those in need of a little help. Contact Bouldin Law Firm and read reviews for representation. Handling small cases encourages cooperation with prosecutors and gives the lawyer an opportunity to create lasting attorney-client relationships.
Hiring an attorney to represent you with a traffic offense may seem costly. That is not always the case and a small fee is often better than loss of license. For consultation and potential representation in Boone, Kenton and Campbell counties, call or text 859-581-6453 or use this contact link.
