Will I lose my license and can I get a reduction?
I got a speeding ticket this past Friday night. I was going 15 mph over the speed limit. This is my first ticket.

What was the speed limit? And what does your driving record look like? First ticket but are you a provisional licensee? You can lose your license if convicted of 81 or faster in a 70 mph zone. You can lose your license if you’ve recked up lots of points in 3 years OR you’re convicted of 2 charges of speeding over 55 mph in a 12-‘month period.
Can you get a reduction- probably. Could your license still be suspended- absolutely- depending on the circumstances I’ve mentioned. So since I don’t know the speed limit where you were charged and you say it’s your first ticket, I recommend you have a lawyer help you.
There are some points you are missing in your question, but if you are an experienced driver and you were not in a school zone, then likely you can get it reduced and you will not lose your license
A local lawyer may be able to have this reduced to a non-moving violation for you. Having it reduced to a non-moving violation will help with both your insurance and license. I agree with Counsel above, having an attorney may cost more in the front end, but it could save you a substantial amount of money in long end. Good luck!
