You can’t help but get an adrenaline rush when you see blue lights in your rear view mirror. You pull over, knowing that you’re about to get a traffic ticket. Once the officer hands you the ticket, you have two viable options. First, you can pay for the ticket, but that means you’re admitting guilt. Second, you can hire a lawyer from Berardi and Associates, LLC and mount a legal defense. With a successful defense, you can avoid paying your traffic ticket, as well as the other consequences.
Traffic tickets might seem like minor violations, but you can expect some consequences with them. The state will add two points to your license when you commit a moving violation. If that violation causes an accident, the state will add three points to your license. These moving violations can cause your insurance rates to increase, and if you get enough of them, your license might get suspended. With help from Berardi and Associates, LLC, you might be able to get the ticket removed from your record.
Your traffic ticket lawyer will evaluate the evidence and mount a defense. The attorney might challenge the officer’s observations or subjective conclusion or present evidence that shows that you made a reasonable mistake. It’s even possible to argue that you were only going a couple of miles over the speed limit. Many judges are willing to throw out traffic tickets when the driver wasn’t posing a serious danger to others.
Your traffic ticket attorney will prepare the defense, and then, you will show up to court. It’s not unusual for the ticketing officer to fail to show. If that happens, the judge can choose to dismiss your violation. Still, it’s up to the judge’s discretion, so it’s helpful to have an attorney by your side.
As you can see, you have lots of options to get out of your ticket. Contact Berardi and Associates, LLC to learn more.
Ignoring your traffic tickets isn’t a viable option. If you don’t appear in court or pay the fine, the court will issue a warrant. You might think that the city won’t use the resources necessary to pick you up on a warrant for a traffic ticket, but that’s not the case. If a police officer scans your plate and finds out you have a warrant, he or she can arrest you. This could happen while at home, or it could occur when you’re out with friends or even at work. To say it’s embarrassing is an understatement.
You can avoid this problem by contacting Berardi and Associates, LLC as soon as you get your traffic ticket. However, if you’ve already been picked up on a warrant, it’s still not too late for legal help. Reach out to the team at Berardi and Associates, LLC to go over your options.
Don’t let your traffic ticket bring severe problems to your life. You don’t want to end up with high insurance rates or a suspended license, and you certainly don’t want the state to issue a warrant for your arrest. Instead of letting the problem get out of hand, contact Berardi and Associates, LLC for help.
