Traffic Tickets

It is important to keep traffic tickets off of your driving record, as the accumulation of points can lead to a driver license suspension and increase your insurance rates.

An attorney can help.  Traffic Tickets defended.  Alias Warrants lifted.  I can help you seek deferred adjudication or defensive driving classes as a compromise to keep moving violations off of your record and your insurance rates down.

I also represent drivers who hold commercial driver licenses (Class A and B).  A traffic citation is a VERY SERIOUS MATTER FOR THE PROFESSIONAL DRIVER.  You may need to hire an attorney to take the case to a jury trial and to navigate the subsequent appellate process in the county court-at-law.  Most people are not aware that a Class A or B license holder cannot receive deferred adjudication or do defensive driving to keep a moving violation off of their driving record.  Only a couple moving violations on your record can lead to a professional driver losing his or her driver license.

Want to fight your traffic ticket but cannot make it to court?  Need extra time to pay your fine?   In many municipal courts in our jurisdiction, I may appear on your behalf, negotiate payments, and seek lower fines.

Take care of your ticket today…hire representation; do not end up with a warrant out for your arrest.

Fines and court costs are not included in fees for legal representation.  I do not charge a consultation fee on traffic citations.

Municipal courts that I practice in include:

Dallas, Fort Worth, Arlington, Grand Prairie, Keller, Watauga, North Richland Hills, Richland Hills, Haltom City, Bedford, Euless, Irving, Carrolton, Richardson, Forest Hill, Northlake, Flower Mound, Denton, Lewisville, Southlake, Grapevine, Westworth Villiage, White Settlement, Burleson. Samson Park, River Oaks, and Lake Worth.

 

 From the Texas of Department of Public Safety:

   Point System

Points are assessed for traffic convictions.  Once the conviction has been added to the driver record, points are assigned and remain on the driver record for three years from the date of conviction.

  1. Two points are assessed for a Texas or out-of-state traffic conviction.
  2. Three points are assessed for a Texas or out-of-state traffic conviction that resulted in a crash.

NOTE: Points are not assessed for individuals who take defensive driving.

Individuals who have six or more points on their driver record are assessed a surcharge every year they maintain six or more points. Surcharges amounts are:

  1. $100 for the first six points on a driver record.
  2. $25 for each additional point after six.
