Dallas Traffic Ticket Attorneys
Helping You Fight Your Citation
Texas's Penal and Transportation Codes outline various laws of the road. If you allegedly violate one or more of them, a police officer could pull you over and issue a citation. When you receive the slip of paper listing your alleged offense, you are required to sign it, which signifies your agreement to resolve the matter. You have several options to take care of your ticket: You can pay the fine or contest the citation. Although merely paying the fine may be more convenient than fighting the ticket, it might not be in your best interest. Paying the fine is essentially admitting guilt, and the offense will appear on your driving record. Contesting the ticket may seem like more of a hassle, but it could help you avoid costly consequences in the long run.
Because a traffic citation can impact you in various ways, it's beneficial to speak with an attorney about your matter. At Hamilton Grant PC, our Dallas ticket lawyers understand the processes for resolving these cases. We will discuss your legal options and thoroughly explain what it means to plead guilty, no contest, or not guilty for your alleged traffic violation.
Providing Defense for All Types of Traffic Violations
After receiving a ticket, you have a certain amount of time to resolve it. That means you must enter a plea before the date written on the citation.
Again, you have several options for taking care of your ticket. If you plead guilty or no contest, you will be required to pay the fine. However, you may also be able to take a driving safety course or seek a deferred disposition to have your case eventually dismissed. To pursue either of these avenues, you must meet specific eligibility requirements and conditions. Therefore, before moving forward with your decision to plead guilty, speak with our ticket attorney as soon as possible.
Your other option for resolving your case is to plead not guilty. When you do so, you are contesting the ticket, and the matter will be set for trial. As with any other offense, when your case goes to court, you must present your side of the story to a judge or jury. Additionally, the State must prove beyond a reasonable doubt that you are guilty of the alleged violation. Our lawyers will represent you at trial and present evidence and a compelling case on your behalf.
We provide defense in Dallas for matters involving:
- Driving without a license
- Making an illegal U-turn
- Failing to obey traffic signs or signals
- Failing to wear a seatbelt
- Failing to use turn signals
- And more
Consequences of Neglecting a Ticket
Many people might not think of a traffic ticket as a serious matter. They might set aside the slip of paper and forget about it.
However, failing to appear or pay the fine for a citation can have serious consequences, including:
- Being unable to renew a driver's license
- Being unable to renew vehicle registration
- Having a warrant issued for arrest
- Being criminally charged for failure to appear
Therefore, if an officer cited you for a traffic violation, ensure that you speak with our team right away. We'll help take care of your ticket and work toward avoiding severe sanctions the court or the Texas Department of Public Safety may impose upon you.
