Know Your Options After Receiving a Traffic Ticket
We represent anyone using Texas roadways. Many of our clients have received multiple traffic tickets for various offenses, leading to a warrant or a hold on their license.
Depending on the individual circumstances, there are a couple of options available after receiving a traffic citation:
- Participate in defensive driving programs
- Contest the traffic ticket
If you’ve received a traffic ticket in Texas, defensive driving school will not only dismiss the ticket but it will also keep your driving record clean and prevent any increase in car insurance rates.
In order to be eligible for driving school, motorists must meet the following requirements:
- You haven’t taken a defensive driving course in Texas within the 12 months prior to receiving your ticket
- You must have a valid Texas driver’s license
- You were not driving a commercial vehicle at the time you received your ticket
- Your ticket was not issued for speeding at 25 MPH or more over the posted speed limit
- Your ticket was not issued for a violation within a construction zone
If you are not eligible to complete the defensive driving course, you have the option to contest the ticket. Although contesting a traffic ticket is a big time commitment, it gives you a chance of beating the ticket.
In order to dispute a traffic citation, you are required to appear in traffic court at least one time. In Texas, traffic violations are handled by individual local traffic courts. As a local himself, our attorney is known by the judges and prosecutors throughout the region for his legal skills and professional representation.
We Represent Commercial Drivers throughout Texas
We represent hundreds of drivers with commercial driver’s licenses (CDLs). If you’ve received a CDL traffic ticket, you are not eligible for deferred adjudication or defensive driving. An experienced San Angelo and Abilene traffic ticket attorney can help you keep your traffic violation off your record. We have a strong history of success handling CDL cases. If we cannot get your case dismissed or otherwise keep it off your record, we will try our best to minimize the consequences by obtaining a reduction in charges.
Representing Out-of-State Drivers
Our firm also represents tourists or other visitors who have received traffic tickets in West Texas. While you are not eligible for adjudication procedures, we can represent your interests before the local traffic court in which you committed the traffic violation. After a thorough consultation with you, either in person or over the phone, we will appear on your behalf to make your case, or facilitate any payments to the court if you decide to settle.
