Have you ever tried to handle your own ticket in court. If so, then you know how frustrating and time consuming it is to deal with a municipal court. You wait endlessly in line, anxiously anticipating that moment when someone screams "NEXT!" Then, there's the very uncomfortable moment when you have to talk to a prosecutor, or worse, the judge. Save yourself money, time and frustration. Don't waste your time and money taking off work to go to court to handle your own traffic ticket. Hire lawyer Todd E. Tkach.
Now for the money savings. As experienced Lewisville ticket lawyers, we know well the applicable substantive and procedural laws, and how to apply them to the facts of your case. With every case, we first try for a complete dismissal. With that result, you don't have to pay any fine. If a complete dismissal cannot be achieved, then we'll negotiate a reduction of your fine amount and make sure that you have a clean driving record at the end.
Keeping your driving record clean is extremely important, because it can save you hundreds of dollars. Simply paying your traffic ticket means that you are convicted, and you likely paid close to the highest fine amount possible. With convictions, you will pay more for automobile insurance for months and possibly years. You could also "points" assessed by the Texas Department of Public Safety ("DPS"). Too many points and you get a driver's license suspension. Even without a suspension, DPS will assess "surcharges" with too many points. That's an additional amount you must pay each month, in addition to any fine you may have paid. Don't risk it. Call the Lewisville ticket lawyers with the Law Office of Todd E. Tkach now to talk with one of our courteous staff members, who can explain the traffic citation process, answer any questions you may have, and ultimately resolve your traffic ticket case.

What you don’t know can hurt you!
Warrants for your arrest without a Lewisville ticket lawyer
After you receive a Lewisville traffic ticket, you only have a few days to either pay the ticket or set it for a court hearing. Do nothing and a warrant for your arrest will be issued. If that happens, you cannot resolve that traffic ticket with the court unless and until you do one of the following things.
- Do nothing and wait to be arrested. After being arrested, sit in jail until the Judge determines that you have served enough time to "sit out" your fine. Plano usually requires one day in jail for each $100.00 in outstanding fines and warrant fees. And, after you serve your time, you are convicted of the charge.
- Go to the municipal court and pay the maximum fine amount for the ticket, plus the warrant fee. Again, you're likely paying too much for the fine, and you are convicted.
- Go to the Court and post a cash bond in an amount equal to the maximum fine amount, plus court costs and the warrant fee. However, the amount of the cash bond will be several hundred dollars at the least, and could exceed a thousand dollars, depending on the charge involved. Then, you still have to go to court on your ticket. Fail to appear in court and you forfeit your cash bond.
There is a much better alternative. Keep your cash and protect your driving record! For a nominal fee, hire lawyer Todd E. Tkach to post a 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 Lewisville ticket lawyers and staff have the experience, knowledge and skills to aggressively represent you to make sure that your rights are protected.
Avoid paying fines or get fine reductions with a Lewisville ticket lawyer

In that event, you don’t have to pay any fine!!

Avoid “points” on your driving record with a Lewisville 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. 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 lawyer Todd E. Tkach represent you on your traffic tickets and protect your driver’s license.
Avoid paying surcharges with a Lewisville ticket lawyer
Convictions of certain traffic citations 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 traffic tickets. Call lawyer Todd E. Tkach now! We’ll fight for a dismissal of these traffic 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.
Stop insurance rate increases with a Lewisville ticket lawyer
Convictions of traffic 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 traffic or 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 lawyer Todd E. Tkach now to protect your driving record.

Attorney representation for all Class C misdemeanors
All traffic tickets, speeding tickets,code violations and other municipal tickets are “Class C” misdemeanors, according to the laws of the State of Texas. The Lewisville ticket lawyers with Todd E. Tkach, P.C. handle all types of Class “C” misdemeanors, as well as all other Penal 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. Attorney representation can become very important. 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.
