What if I proceed without hiring a Dallas traffic ticket attorney?

What you don’t know can hurt you!

Warrants for your arrest without a Dallas traffic ticket attorney

After you receive a traffic ticket, you only have a few days to either pay the ticket or set it for a court hearing. If you fail to do either, a warrant for your arrest will be issued. In that event, you cannot resolve that traffic ticket with the court unless and until you do one of the following two things: 1) pay the maximum fine amount for the ticket; or 2) post a cash bond in an amount equal to the maximum fine amount plus court costs! Neither of those options is advisable. If you simply pay the ticket, not only are you paying the highest fine possible for that particular ticket, but you are convicted of the charge, which means it will go on your driving record. Posting a cash bond can also be problematic. The amount of the cash bond will be equal to the maximum possible fine for that ticket, plus an additional amount for court costs. The cash necessary for that bond will be several hundred dollars. The Court holds your cash until you resolve your traffic ticket, which could take several months.

Let me suggest an alternative. Keep your cash and protect your driving record! For a nominal fee, hire attorney Todd E. Tkach to post a traffic ticket attorney bond, lift the warrant and go to court to fight for a dismissal of the traffic ticket. You don’t even have to go to court, unless you want to. Don’t wait. Call attorney Todd E. Tkach now at 214-999-0595. Our team of Dallas traffic ticket attorneys and staff have the experience, knowledge and skills to aggressively represent you to make sure that your rights are protected.

Avoid “points” on your driving record with a Dallas traffic ticket attorney

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 traffic tickets. The number of “Points” charged varies depending on the type of traffic ticket you are given, but ranges from one (1) to six (6) points. A Texas driver gets 2 points for most traffic ticket 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. If that happens, you cannot legally drive an automobile in Texas. Let attorney Todd E. Tkach represent you on your traffic tickets and protect your driver’s license.
