I just received a traffic ticket, what should I do?
We strongly recommend that you contact a lawyer who routinely handles traffic matters. Many people think that they should simply pay the ticket and have no knowledge of the effects a ticket may have
By paying an Indiana traffic ticket, you are agreeing to a judgment that will be part of your PERMANENT driving record. If the ticket is for a moving violation and you have an Indiana license, the BMV will assess points against your record. Too many judgments or too many points will result in license suspension - possibly for as long as 5 or 10 years.
Obviously, having traffic violations on your record will result in increased insurance costs. Increasingly, employers and others who perform background checks, look closely at driving records. It is important to keep your record as clean as possible.
In many cases, we are able to beat traffic tickets in court or negotiate to get them reduced to non-moving (no points) violations. We handle traffic tickets throughout the State of Indiana.
Is it possible to get old tickets off of my record?
In some cases, we have been able to help people remove all traffic ticket judgments. If you have accumulated too many points, been adjudged a habitual traffic violator, or lost an employment opportunity because of tickets, please contact us. We may be able to help.
