Can any attorney appear in court for me & convert speeding ticket to non moving violation. I'll pay fine and attorney fee

Asked 10 months ago - Battle Creek, MI

On I-94 in Calhoun County, Michigan, I got speeding ticket. Speed limit: 70 mph, my speed: 86 mph. It think it is state civil infraction because "State of Michigan - Uniform Law Citation" is printed on top of the ticket. I'm Ontario, Canada resident. Cop told me the fine would be $86 but when I called the court clerk she told me a different amount/fine and 3 demerit points. This is confusing.
I am ready to get services of any attorney who practice in Calhoun county, MI and who help me to convert the speeding ticket to non-moving violation ticket so that demerit points do not affect my insurance premium and driving record.

    Answered . It is a good idea to hire an attorney to represent you on this matter. If the ticket is reduced to a non-moving violation, it can save you money on your insurance premiums. However, it is impossible for an attorney to guarantee you that your ticket will be reduced to a non-moving violation. It will depend on many factors, including, but not limited to; the prosecutor, the evidence against you, and your previous driving record.

    Answered . You are doing the right thing by trying to avoid points. Points cause your insurance premiums to sky-rocket. You will want to contact an attorney for representation. Michigan has a couple of civil infractions on the books which do not appear on your record and do not carry points. Our firm has negotiated to have traffic tickets which carry points to non-point violations such as impeding traffic, blocking traffic or double parking. The court may still get you for fines and costs with these reduced charges but your record remains clear.
