This is a question frequently asked. Isn’t just easier and more cost effective to mail the speeding ticket in, pay the fine and go on with my life? I was just speeding after all. I’m not exactly a criminal! At first glance that may be so, but the reality is that one may find that having a lawyer to handle their traffic tickets may actually save them more money and time than the fees cost them.
Your time has a certain value to it. Often when hiring an attorney, a client may not even have to appear personally in court. Your lawyer can appear for you, negotiate for reductions or dismissals, and speak with the DA on your behalf. If you do need to appear in court, those with an attorney have their cases called first, saving you from a long wait in the courtroom. If you have ever spent several hours in traffic court, you surely will appreciate that!
Often times, with the reduction of the charges comes reduced fines. In addition in New York State, the number of points against your drivers’ license may cause increased auto insurance premiums. The money you spend for a lawyer to defend you regarding your traffic matter is well worth the investment when you consider time, fines and cheaper insurance rates.
