Hiring an attorney to fight traffic tickets makes sense if your goal is to maximize the chances of keeping the traffic ticket off your driving record. Traffic tickets go on your driving record and can affect your insurance. Getting too many traffic tickets can cause you to lose your license. If you are under 18 years old and have an intermediate driver’s license, 2 tickets will lead to a license suspension. If you have a Commercial Driver’s License, certain tickets will cause you to lose your commercial driving privileges and you can lose your job. In short, traffic tickets can be a big deal for your finances, your job, and on your ability to drive.
There are many kinds of attorneys out there. A good traffic attorney, one that limits his or her practice exclusively to traffic ticket matters, will have a high success rate. From my experience, many tickets can be beat, while others can be negotiated down into a lower offense that will not affect your driving record. The good lawyers know the issues that will get dismissals and the issues that do not. There is a lot of snake oil out there on the internet as well as other lawyers, but it just takes the right attorney to argue the issues that will get you a dismissal.
