Waxahachie Speeding Ticket Attorney
You just got a Waxahachie speeding ticket! Hire a Waxahachie speeding ticket attorney? That is your best option. You could just do nothing. But, that means a warrant for your arrest will be issued, and you would be subject to arrest at any time. Another option is to just pay the ticket. The only good result about paying the ticket is that it prevents a warrant from being issued. The bad results of paying a ticket are really bad and numerous. Your best option is to hire attorney Todd E. Tkach. We know how to avoid the traps and pitfalls that can cause you a lot of problems, and will save you a lot of time and money.
There are many reasons to hire a Waxahachie speeding ticket attorney. When making the decision about whether to hire an attorney, you should consider “money” and protection of your driving record. How much money will it cost for a Waxahachie speeding ticket attorney? The better question is: How much will it cost if you don’t hire an attorney? Yes, it will cost you a one-time low flat rate fee to hire Todd E. Tkach as your Waxahachie speeding ticket attorney. And, the expertise you get for that nominal fee could save you hundreds or even thousands of dollars in the future, as well as a lot of time and frustration.
Now, back to your options if you don’t hire a Waxahachie speeding ticket attorney. Just paying your fine is a very bad idea. If you do that, you are pleading guilty to the charge. That’s a conviction which becomes a part of your permanent record. That’s right, … permanent! The Texas Department of Public Safety assigns “points” for convictions of traffic tickets, which can result in the assessment of surcharges. Points remain on your record for 3 years, but the conviction remains on your record forever. Convictions will cause an increase in your auto insurance rates. That means that you pay more money every month for auto insurance. Unlike the Department of Public Safety, which doesn’t consider convictions after 3 years, auto insurance companies assess your premiums by looking at your entire record. The monthly increase adds up to a lot of money. Additionally, by simply paying your fine, you probably paid way too much.
Our goal is to have your Waxahachie speeding ticket completely dismissed. In that event, you don’t any fine. If we can’t get a complete dismissal, we’ll negotiate with the prosecutor to reduce your fine amount as much as possible and protect your driving record.

What Happens If I Don’t Hire a Waxahachie Speeding Ticket Attorney?
What you don’t know can hurt you!
Warrants For Your Arrest Without a Waxahachie Speeding 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 an 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.
