Hiring a traffic ticket lawyer makes sense if you want to save yourself points on your driving record, and money on your car insurance. A defense attorney can get speeding and traffic tickets dismissed, or reduced to offenses that have less of an impact. This is especially beneficial for commercial driver's license holders, or anyone that drives as part of a job. For more serious traffic violations, like suspended/revoked license violations, reckless driving, racing or excessive speeding, a lawyer can help defend the charge, or mitigate the penalties.
If the police give you a ticket for violating traffic laws (quite often for speeding), you may require the services of a traffic ticket lawyer (sometimes called a speeding ticket lawyer) to help you through traffic court. Traffic ticket lawyers know which people to talk to at court and the kind of deals they are willing to make. The traffic ticket lawyer will also know the specific types of proof the officer must submit to the court and when there is not enough information to support the traffic ticket.
