Sure we see a lot of people going to traffic court by themselves, and going home at the end of the docket so it must be okay to not get a lawyer, right?
Hold up, you might be leaving court but did you just make it so you can’t legally drive from court? Many times you receive multiple tickets. Some of these can be prepaid and some cannot. Certain charges carry a lot more points than others.
The benefit of a lawyer in traffic court is that a lawyer can effectively negotiate with the State to prepay a ticket with little or no points and have the jailable offence dismissed. Or we can get to you prepay a no point charge and have no points negotiated on the other tickets.
Having a lawyer there can be very helpful. I can save you thousands of dollars or, more importantly, keep you from a suspended license.
