Warrants for your arrest without a Farmers Branch speeding ticket lawyer
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 things: 1) get arrested and stay in jail until the judge of the court determines that you have served enough time to pay your fine, court costs and warrant fee; 2) pay the maximum fine amount for the ticket, plus a warrant fee; 3) post a cash bond in an amount equal to the maximum fine amount, plus court costs and a warrant fee; or 4) hire Todd E. Tkach as your Farmers Branch speeding ticket lawyer. Option 1 is definitely not advisable. Option 2 is also not advisable, because in addition to paying a high fine amount, your payment of the fine results in a conviction, 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 lawyer Todd E. Tkach to post a Farmers Branch speeding ticket lawyer 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 lawyer Todd E. Tkach now at 214-999-0595. Our team of Farmers Branch speeding ticket lawyers 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 Farmers Branch speeding ticket lawyer
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 violation convictions (3 points if a crash is involved). “Points” remain on a driver’s record for 3 years.
