    You could have likely avoided this whole situation had you not drawn attention to yourself by using such colorful language. In addition to the fines, you are also facing the possibility of six points being assessed on your driving record. You need to contact an experienced Orlando traffic ticket attorney to discuss your situation.

    The only thing you are going to accomplish by avoiding the mailman is getting your license suspended, which will result in more financial penalties and potentially, a criminal charge, if caught driving while suspended.

  3. If I choose to waive my right to a formal review hearing, can that be used against me as a submission of guilt in court?

    There are many reasons for waiving the formal review hearing, but a client's guilty conscience is not one of them. That being said, waiving your right to the formal review hearing would likely not be used against you in court. Even if the State tried to present it as evidence, it is not relevant and its probative value (if any) is greatly outweighed by the danger of unfair prejudice. In light of all of the other evidence that is typically available in DUI cases, it would seem far fetched that...

    Since you didn't ask a question, we can't give you an answer. I just hope that you learned a lesson and you will not endanger others by drinking and driving again in the future.

    Yes, you need an attorney to fight this ticket on your behalf, but not just any attorney. You should hire an experienced traffic ticket attorney in your local area that routinely practices in the Orlando traffic courts (many attorneys will send direct mail advertisements, but they do not actually live or work in your local area, check Floridabar.org to verify attorney office locations). Only an attorney who routinely appears in your local court will be able to provide you with realistic...

    Fight it, but not on your own (that is never a good idea). Hire a local traffic ticket attorney (someone who handles tickets on a daily basis, not just a lawyer who dabbles in it) to help you contest this ticket. There is always the possibility that the ticket will get dismissed.

    Sounds like a standard negotiated plea for your type of charge, so long as adjudication is withheld. If you feel as though this offer is excessive, you should discuss that concern with your lawyer and discuss the other options available to you (trial, or possibly, PTI).

    No contest, nolle pros, adjudication withheld should not count as convictions, but some offenses, like driving while license suspended with knowledge, have administrative convictions, even with a disposition of adjudication withheld.

    The individual that received the ticket has likely retained counsel to fight the citation. Even though the insurance aspects of this matter have been resolved, the citation can lead to additional direct and collateral consequences for the Defendant. I fight many accident citations for my clients and there is good reason for doing so. You are being called as a witness because the officer included you as a witness for the case. You are not a party to this case, just a witness - you are being...

    The arraignment hearing is waived by filing a written plea of not guilty, which your attorney has likely already done. You are not required to attend the infraction hearing so long as you have an attorney appear on your behalf. Hypothetically, if there was an issue at the court date that resulted in an FTA, no warrant would be issued, but a D6 suspension fee would be assessed, which can be paid prior to the suspension going into effect (and the case will be reset for court). If this offense was...
