What are my options to deal with a traffic ticket?
Your options include: a full jury trial, a plea deal, a dismissal, a driver's education course, a nolo plea, and many other outcomes. How we approach your case will depend on your driving history, the circumstances of the ticket, the court you are in, and external factors like where you live and how quickly you want your ticket resolved.
Do I have to go to court?
Usually you do not have to go to court, but in many cases it is to your advantage to appear. It shows the prosecutor you are serious about fighting your ticket and if we reach a plea deal you can pay the fine immediately and walk out of court free and clear.

Rates for traffic tickets start at $300 and vary based on the complexity of the ticket and the county the ticket was issued in.
