What Happens If I Don’t Hire a Weatherford Traffic Attorney?
What you don’t know can hurt you!
Warrants For Your Arrest Without a Weatherford Traffic 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. Call attorney Todd E. Tkach now at 214-999-0595. Our team of Weatherford traffic attorneys 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 Weatherford Traffic Attorney
