Traffic Ticket Attorney
Here’s a common scenario: you’re driving the speed limit on the interstate, and everyone is zooming past you. You accelerate 10 mph so you don’t get run over. Half a mile later you look in your mirror and see blue lights. “Surely, he’s not after me,” you think. After all, you were just keeping up with traffic. Sure enough, you pull over to get out of the way, but the officer stops right behind you. The officer approaches your car and asks for your diver’s license and proof of insurance. You hand him your license, but cannot seem to find your most recent insurance card. Before you know it, you’ve got a ticket for speeding and violation of financial law. You look at the bottom of the ticket and see where the officer writes, “MANDATORY COURT APPEARANCE.”
That 10 mph acceleration has now cost you 15-20 minutes on the side of the road. A few weeks from now, it will cost you another few hours by going to court. But it doesn’t have to. You can call the Memphis traffic ticket attorneys at Balestrini, Barnes, Jaber & Wood, PLLC. We can go to court in your place, and, more importantly, we can stop the ticket from appearing on your driving record and from increasing your insurance rates.
If you pay your ticket before court or are found guilty, because you represented yourself, the ticket is reported to the Tennessee Department of Safety and Homeland Security, who’s responsible for managing driver’s licenses and records. That agency places the ticket on your motor vehicle record (“MVR”) and assesses driver improvement points against your license. The ticket remains on your MVR for three years and cannot be removed or expunged. Further, each moving violation carries a predetermined amount of driver improvement points. Twelve driver improvement points in a calendar year will suspend your license for one year.
