When you receive your traffic ticket, you should respond to it immediately. The best time to call our office is right after you get the ticket so that we can adequately prepare a defense strategy while the events are fresh in your mind, and so we can request important documents from the court and the officer that ticketed you. When you call us about a traffic matter, we will discuss the possible outcomes of the ticket and the possible ways to resolve it favorably. When we resolve the ticket, you will be provided with a detailed explanation of the result.
"Can you get this dismissed?"
There are many benefits of hiring an experienced traffic attorney for your case. While the vast majority of traffic violations are resolved with a plea of guilty to a reduced charge, there are a few situations where the ticket can be dismissed entirely. Our firm can discuss these situations with you to see if they apply to your case, however many times this can only be determined while in front of the judge. Judges, local prosecutors, and officers can make mistakes, and if you go to court alone you could end up paying for their mistakes as opposed to benefiting from them.
Another benefit of getting Attorney George C. Selby to represent you is knowing when to take the case to trial. Not every traffic charge can be reduced or dismissed. For many traffic matters, a trial may be the best option, especially in situations where the prosecution is not offering a reduced charge plea, and in situations where your license is at risk of being suspended or revoked.
Finally, the presence of an attorney in the courtroom shows that you are taking the matter seriously. The prosecutor and the judge may be more willing to listen to your attorney speak for you about the circumstances of your ticket, your driver's license, and your specific hardships. With an experienced traffic attorney, you will not be judged by your attitude or appearance while in the courtroom, but by the facts and circumstances of your case.
