Representation for Traffic Tickets in Florida

Florida Attorneys

Serving You and The State of Florida

Traffic violations in Florida can range in severity from a simple fine to a ticket that necessitates jail time. When you get a speeding ticket or some other traffic violation ticket, you might be tempted to just pay it to be able to get on with your day. This can be a big mistake, however, as some tickets are unfairly given, and sometimes there are issues with the way the ticketing process was completed by the officer who stopped you.

For those who are facing more serious traffic violations, the support of a lawyer can be critical in avoiding jail time and other serious consequences. You should never assume that you cannot secure legal support for your traffic violation. This kind of help can make all the difference in your case and might lead to your ticket fine or related sentence being greatly reduced or even dismissed altogether.

Why You Should Contest A Traffic Ticket in Florida

If you have been given a traffic ticket and you do not contest it in the state of Florida, you can have points added to your driving record. These points can add up over time and lead to the loss of your driver’s license, increased auto insurance rates, and other undesirable consequences such as expensive fines. Civil infractions can add their own unique penalties to your ticket as well.

There are various kinds of tickets that can add points to your driving record. The team at Lopez Law Group can help you to fight the following kinds of tickets:

  •         DUI
  •         Speeding
  •         Traffic light violations
  •         Stop sign violations
  •         Driving with a revoked license tickets
  •         Violations of the move-over law
  •         Minor driving without a license
  •         Leave the scene of a crime
  •         Open container tickets
  •         Failure to yield tickets
  •         Driving with a suspended driver’s license
  •         Expired or no driver’s license violations

There are also other kinds of traffic tickets that can require representation, such as registration violations, traffic control device violations, improper lane change, careless or reckless driving, and no passing zone tickets. There are different kinds of fines and consequences associated with each of these kinds of tickets, so you will want to be certain that the team of lawyers that you are working with has experience in all of these different kinds of ticketing processes.

What Are the Consequences For Ignoring My Ticket?

There are various reasons why you should not ignore a traffic violation that you have received in the state of Florida. You might lose your driver’s license, you could have a suspension put on your license for a set period of time. When you do not appear in court to pay your fine, you might also face a warrant for your arrest.

The process of reinstating your driver’s license if you have not paid your fine or appeared in court on your court date can take months. You might have to go to traffic school, or you could have to pay significant additional fines related to your lack of action in response to your ticket. It is always best to secure legal support if you are worried about being able to afford the fine for your traffic ticket or if you believe that the ticket is not fair. Ignoring a ticket will always lead to more severe punishments that you will want to avoid at all costs.

What if I Got My Ticket in Another State?

Many people who have a Florida driver’s license believe that they can ignore a ticket that was received in another state. This is not actually the case, and you can still lose the right to have a driver’s license in the state of Florida. Your driving privileges will resume once you have paid for the traffic ticket and shown proof that this has been done. The receipt that you present will have to have the county court seal on it, or it will not be accepted.

This is one of the common mistakes that drivers make when trying to avoid paying for tickets that happen in other states, and you should avoid this problem at all costs. Never assume that ignoring any kind of violation that has happened while you were driving is a good solution to the problem. These kinds of intentional oversights will always catch up with you later on.

Remember that the traffic violation ticketing system is much easier to track these days, even in other states. Online traffic violation searches are easy to conduct, and it is quite simple for the officer who has pulled you over in Florida to find out if you have other violations in another state that have not been taken care of. Responsiveness to traffic violations is key if you want to be allowed to continue to use your driving privileges in the state of Florida.

Amazing Amazing Amazing!”

I called multiple attorneys to resolve my issue and none had much experience as much as this form. Anthony was amazing and made sure that as his client I was satisfied and understanding with his work. Very helpful and very patient and I was able to communicate with ease. I will definitely recommend this firm if you have a landlord/tenant issue or just an amazing attorney who listens to his clients needs.

"Awesome!"

Thank you Geoff Pfeiffer, for your assistance when my HOA pushed back on my installation of the Solar Panels on my home. Your succinct and eloquent statements of my rights to them turned a “solar panels are not allowed on the front side of the roof, to a 100% approval with no changes needed. Thank you for helping me quickly resolved what was gearing up to be a fight with the HOA.

“I Will Never Use Another Lawyer”

We couldn’t be more satisfied with Sean’s work and are so grateful we chose him to represent us. He works so diligently and tenaciously to get results, and somehow manages to combine being a consummate professional yet friendly and approachable. I was honestly terrified of receiving the final bill considering the hours upon hours he invested in our case (texts, calls, emails, meetings, etc.) after hearing nightmare lawyer stories from other people, but when I did I was shocked at how little he charged us. I never thought I’d say I wanted to pay somebody more than they charged, yet this time I did. I will never use another lawyer; we will use Sean for any and all representation we will ever need, and I urge others to do the same. Thank you, Sean!
