What you don’t know can hurt you!
Warrants for your arrest without a McKinney traffic 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 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 McKinney traffic ticket lawyer Todd E. Tkach to post a McKinney 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. Don’t wait. Call McKinney traffic ticket lawyer Todd E. Tkach now at 214-999-0595. Our team of McKinney traffic 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 McKinney traffic ticket lawyer
Simply paying your fine for a traffic ticket means that you agree that you are “guilty” of the charge. If you are guilty, you must pay a monetary fine. Depending on the traffic ticket involved, the fine could be several hundred dollars. Hiring McKinney traffic ticket lawyer Todd E. Tkach to fight your traffic ticket could result in a dismissal of the charges. In that event, you don’t have to pay any fine!! Even if we can’t get the charge completely dismissed, we’ll aggressive negotiate with the prosecutor to reduce the fine amount and keep the charge off your record.
Avoid “points” on your driving record with a McKinney traffic 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 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 McKinney traffic ticket lawyer Todd E. Tkach represent you on your traffic tickets and protect your driver’s license.
Avoid paying surcharges with a McKinney traffic ticket lawyer
Convictions of certain traffic ticket 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 McKinney traffic ticket 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 McKinney traffic 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 tickets 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 McKinney traffic ticket lawyer Todd E. Tkach now to protect your driving record.
Do I have to be in court with my McKinney traffic ticket lawyer?

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

Tkach will fight to have your traffic ticket dismissed outright!

Lawyer 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 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. Lawyer 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.
