1. A lawyer knows how to get you out of it.
Lawyers are trained to find loopholes. Unlike the average person, a lawyer will know where to look for the tiniest error in your traffic violation. They know the laws and they understand the technicalities. If a mistake has been made, your legal counsel will be all over it. And that could mean getting out of your ticket altogether.
2. A lawyer knows how to get your ticket reduced.
Lawyers are trained in the art of negotiation. If they can’t get you out of it, they will likely be able to reduce the charges and reduce the fine you’re required to pay. This could mean you would have few or no points against your driving record, which keeps your insurance payments low.
3. You’ll look better in front of the judge.
Hiring a lawyer will show the judge that you’re invested in your case, and that could sway the judge to grant you a more favorable outcome. Having legal counsel by your side indicates that you are willing to go the extra mile to prove your innocence, or at the very least, your good intentions. Also, your lawyer will have a good sense of the judge’s personality and rulings because they’ve appeared in front of them many times in the courtroom. That means your lawyer has an established dynamic with the judge that will work to your advantage.
4. It probably costs less than you think.
Most traffic lawyers, like us, have reasonable rates. And we offer the extra advantage of a free consultation. It doesn’t cost you a dime to call us and see what your options are, and getting your ticket reduced or removed from your record is usually well worth it.
