Why Are Some Cases in Justice of the Peace (JP) Courts in Dallas County?

All traffic tickets are criminal violations and are classified in Texas as Class “C” misdemeanors. After a law enforcement officer issues a traffic ticket, the information from the traffic stop is forwarded to a court to begin the procedure against whom the ticket was issued. In Texas, all traffic ticket cases are filed in either a Municipal Court or a Justice of the Peace (JP) Court in the county where the ticket was issued. The Court into which the case is filed is determined by the type of law enforcement officer who issued the citation. If the ticket was issued by a police officer of a particular city or municipality, it will be filed in that city’s municipal court. If issued by a county police officer, such as a Constable, Sheriff or Texas State Trooper, it will be filed in one of the Justice of the Peace (JP) Courts in that county.

Why you should fight your Dallas County speeding ticket

Why is it important to fight your speeding ticket? Simply paying your fine for a Dallas County speeding ticket means that you agree that you are “guilty” of the charge. Being convicted of, or found guilty of a speeding ticket can have serious consequences. There are at least four (4) major reasons to fight a Dallas County speeding ticket.

First, fight your Dallas County speeding ticket to avoid paying a fine

If you are guilty, you must pay a monetary fine. Depending on the Dallas County speeding ticket involved, the fine could be several hundred dollars. Hiring Todd E. Tkach to fight your speeding ticket could result in a dismissal of the charges. In that event, you don’t have to pay any fine!

Second, fight your Dallas County speeding ticket to avoid points on your driving record

The State of Texas has a Point System that affects your right to hold and maintain a Texas driver’s license. You are charged Points against your driving record if you are convicted of certain Dallas County speeding tickets. The number of Points charged varies depending on the type of speeding ticket you are given, but ranges from one (1) to six (6) points. A Texas driver gets 2 points for most traffic violation convictions (3 points if a crash is involved). Points remain on a driver’s record for 3 years. Accumulating points on your driving record can result in huge “surcharges” assessed by the Texas Department of Public Safety and a possible driver’s license suspension. Accumulating twenty-one (21) points in any three (3) year period will result in a suspension of your driver’s license. If that happens, you cannot legally drive an automobile in Texas. Let attorney Todd E. Tkach represent you on your Dallas County speeding tickets and protect your driver’s license.

Third, fight your Dallas County speeding ticket to avoid paying surcharges

Convictions of certain Dallas County speeding tickets can cost you surcharges imposed by the Texas Department of Public Safety. A yearly $100 surcharge is assessed for 6 Points on your driving record; with another $25 surcharge for each additional point. The surcharge continues to be assessed as long as the Points total 6 or more. Additionally, convictions for “no insurance” and “driving while license invalid” mandate a $750.00 surcharge each! Don’t risk being convicted of these speeding tickets. Call Todd E. Tkach now! We’ll fight for a dismissal of these speeding tickets and the surcharges that accompany them. If we can’t obtain an outright dismissal, we’ll fight to get a dismissal through plea negotiations and keep the charges off your driving record.

Fourth, fight your Dallas County speeding ticket to stop insurance rate increases

Convictions of Dallas County speeding tickets can raise your automobile insurance rates. Many automobile insurance companies check your driving record before agreeing to insure you or renew your automobile insurance. Having “convictions” for speeding tickets on your driving record can cost you a lot of money. Your automobile insurance company may increase your insurance rates when you apply for new insurance or for a renewal of your existing insurance. Avoid paying increased insurance rates! Call attorney Todd E. Tkach now to protect your driving record.

Speeding tickets are Class C misdemeanors

All Dallas County speeding tickets, code violations and other municipal citations are “Class C” misdemeanors, according to the laws of the State of Texas. At the Law Office of Todd E. Tkach, we handle all types of Class “C” misdemeanors, as well as all other criminal code violations. All Class C misdemeanors in the State of Texas are adjudicated in Municipal Courts and Justice of the Peace Courts. Although these are the lowest level of criminal courts in the State, some Class C misdemeanors can have significant and long-term effects. For example, multiple convictions for disorderly conduct can be enhanced to Class B or Class A misdemeanors, which carry jail time in their range of punishment. A conviction for a charge of Class C assault/family violence can be enhanced and can prohibit you from owning or possessing a firearm. Don’t “go it alone.” The long-term effects can be devastating. Call Todd E. Tkach to make sure your rights are protected.

Do I have to be in Court on the day of my Dallas County speeding ticket hearing?

Although it can help us get a dismissal and/or to negotiate a more favorable plea agreement, your presence is usually not necessary.
