If you are presented with a traffic ticket in circumstances in which you believe you did nothing wrong, or if you know you made a mistake but hope to have the large fine reduced, going into court with a Traffic Ticket Lawyer is wise.
Obviously, this is even more important if there is the risk your driver’s license might be suspended. It is extraordinarily inconvenient to lose your license for even a few months. It is a major disruption to virtually every daily routine.
In addition, as most people know, if the violation of the Highway Traffic Act is significant enough, a traffic ticket can cause your insurance premium to increase. That is another reason not to try to fight a traffic ticket yourself. However, a Lawyer’s fees can be sizable, perhaps more than the fine you are facing. For that reason, many Litigation Law Firms will assign a law student or a lawyer just at the beginning of their career to represent you. This will significantly reduce your cost of representation and provide a great learning opportunity for the law student or junior lawyer. Your representative may be inexperienced, but they will have legal training and therefore an understanding of the legal issues, the Highway Traffic Act, rules of evidence, and so forth.
Paralegals also handle a large percentage of Traffic Ticket cases. Many law firms have litigation-focused paralegals on staff to handle just those sorts of matters (along with Small Claims Court cases).
