Getting a traffic ticket is no fun. It may even ruin your day. But don’t let it ruin your driving record too. It rarely makes sense to plead guilty to what you have been charged with in the case of a traffic ticket. Not only might your insurance premiums go up and you have to pay more each payment to drive your car, but you also lose the clean driving record you may have had before the ticket. Moreover, pleading guilty in a serious case may even cause you to lose your license, send you to jail, or result in your car being confiscated.
The right attorney can help.
A knowledgeable and caring attorney can review your case, decide what is in your best interest and increase your chances of winning. He may decide to plead you to lesser charges, try to obtain a prayer for judgment continued (PJC) or maybe even attempt to get the ticket dismissed altogether, thereby saving you the money you would pay for increased insurance premiums and maybe even saving you a day at the courthouse! It is important to get an attorney involved as soon as possible after receiving a ticket so that he or she can make certain to review your driving record and decide what is best for you.
