Warrants for your arrest without a Lewisville traffic 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. If you fail to do either, a warrant for your arrest will be issued. In that event, you cannot resolve that Lewisville traffic ticket with the court unless and until you either get arrested and sit out your fine or bond out; pay the maximum fine amount for the ticket plus the warrant fee; post a cash bond in an amount equal to the maximum fine amount plus court costs and a warrant fee; or hire Todd E. Tkach to post an attorney bond to lift the warrant and completely resolve your traffic ticket case. 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 or even as much as a thousand dollars.
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 Lewisville traffic 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.

Avoid “points” on your driving record with a Lewisville traffic ticket lawyer

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.
