Traffic Violation Attorneys Can Contest Citations
Just because a ticket was issued, i.e. a citation, does not mean that you have been charged with an infraction. Traffic citations can sometimes be charged as misdemeanors. Depending on the specific circumstances, even speeding, for example, can be a misdemeanor. Even a simple parking ticket, if unpaid, will result in the issuance of an arrest warrant. A failure to appear in court, a so-called "FTA", will also result in the issuance of an arrest warrant. While the police will not normally serve a misdemeanor arrest warrant at your house or work, they routinely check their computer system for warrants whenever they stop someone for a traffic violation and you may find yourself being taken to jail.
An attorney can help determine whether you are being charged with an infraction or a misdemeanor, and whether or not the charge should be fought. For a simple moving violation, such as speeding five miles per hour over the speed limit, it may be better to pay the small fine and move forward; however, there are some citations that should be fought. Red light camera violations, for example, are some of the most commonly contested charges and you may be able to receive a favorable outcome by working with the Law Offices of Kenneth H. Lewis.
