If you simply pay your fine, you are basically saying you are guilty of your traffic violation. Before you give up on your speeding ticket case, you should be aware of your chances of beating it and avoiding the resulting consequences. It is possible to defeat this traffic citation; however, almost no one does so successfully on their own. You give yourself the greatest shot at overcoming a speeding ticket when you work with an attorney.
At the Law Office of Nabiel C. Ahmed, we understand that every case deserves our full dedication, and we can go the distance to help you with your traffic ticket. We understand how important your driving privileges are, and that any points against your license can quickly rack up into skyrocketing insurance costs, serious fines, and even driver's license suspension.
If you have prior traffic violations on your record, a speeding ticket could push you over the edge, causing you to lose your license. Even if you do not have that many points against your driver's license, a $35 fine for speeding can suddenly balloon into a $298 fine due to all of the penalty assessments and fees involved.
First off, if you do not plead guilty, county officials now has to actually exert themselves in order to exact the fine from you. This is because instead of simply sending a check in the mail, someone now has to establish that beyond a reasonable doubt you committed a traffic violation. Then you can make time work for you. If the officer who gave you the citation does not appear at your hearing, your case could get dismissed. Or the officer's memory could fade over time, weakening the testimony they could bring up against you.
Finally, you will need concrete evidence on your side. With the help of our experienced lawyer, you may be able to obtain certifications, find out how the radar gun was calibrated the day of your arrest, and other factors. Our team of legal professionals can use this evidence to make a strong argument in your defense, potentially saving your license. Even if the facts are against you, our attorney can fight for alternative penalties, such as driver training that could erase some points from your record.
While all this is doable, the fact remains that it is a steep challenge to fight a speeding ticket; a challenge that is best met with the help of an attorney. You can rely on the Law Office of Nabiel C. Ahmed when you need to work with a proven advocate to preserve driving privileges, prevent needless headache, and evade serious penalties down the road.
