Tampa Traffic Court Lawyer
If you pay your ticket now, you’ll automatically be guilty. That means you’ll have points on your record and higher insurance costs. Fortunately, a Tampa traffic court attorney can help.
By paying a traffic ticket in Florida, you admit guilt. This may not seem like a problem at first, but it can have serious consequences.
Not only are you losing the money you’ll have to spend on the fine, but you will also have points on your drivers license. Points on your license can add up and lead to a suspension. Perhaps more importantly, the insurance company can use the points on your driving record to increase your monthly insurance premiums and this could cost you hundreds or thousands of dollars over the next few years.
If the insurance company can increase your monthly bill based on traffic tickets you receive in Tampa, then the dollar amount you pay for your ticket is only the beginning. That’s why pleading guilty to your traffic ticket is never your best option.
Here’s the good news: A Tampa traffic court lawyer at Hersem Law can help you fight your ticket in traffic court and you may avoid all of the above penalties.
Representing Yourself in Traffic Court: Never a Good Idea
Some Tampa drivers who receive traffic tickets think they can go to traffic court on their own, but that’s usually not a good idea unless you have the time, knowledge, resources, and experience that a traffic lawyer in Tampa can offer.
Before you decide to represent yourself as you fight your Tampa traffic ticket, ask yourself these questions:
- Do you really want to take the time out of your day to schedule your hearing?
- When your court date finally comes around, do you want to spend hours waiting for your turn to speak with the judge?
- Do you even know what you’ll say when you get your turn to speak?
- Are you going to know all of the key legal arguments or motions that might get your ticket dismissed or reduced?
If your answer to any of those questions is no, then you should call an experienced traffic ticket attorney at Hersem Law as soon as possible. We’re prepared to fight for you and ease your stress.
