What to Expect in Court

If you are reading this guide, then you probably have a traffic ticket you want to fight. Here are a few tips and some helpful information on what you should expect in court.

Answering Your Ticket: The worst thing you could do is not answer your traffic ticket. Technically you have 48 hours after your ticket has been issued to send in your plea of guilty or not guilty. If you do not answer, your license could be suspended.

Pleading Not Guilty: If you choose to plead not guilty, please follow the instructions provided on your ticket; this can be done via mail or in person. Once the court has received your plea, you will be notified of your court date. At this court appearance you will have an opportunity to present your case's strengths and weaknesses.

Pleading Guilty: If you choose to plead guilty, please follow the instructions on how to do so provided on your ticket. Once the court has received your plea, they will send you a fine notification. You must pay this fine by its due date. Failure to do so can lead to your license being suspended.

Please not that pleading guilty to a traffic ticket could result in high financial costs. For instance, penalties and fines that need to be paid to the court as well as the DMV. Not to mention, points can be added to your license and your insurance costs could increases as well. If you would like a consultation with one of our experienced attorneys, give us a call today at 800-893-9645. 

What to Bring: You should bring your court notice with you to court; if you are displaced within the court, a court personnel can help direct you to where you need to go and what you have to do. In addition, you should bring your driving record. If your record is clean it can help mitigate your situation.

If your case is resolved at this court appearance be sure to bring enough money to pay court fines and penalties.

Security: Please remember that the court is a place of respect, as such you will be asked to walk through a magnetometer upon arriving to the court. It is advised that all weapons and sharp objects be left at home and all electronic devices be turned off prior to entering the court.

Formality: It is important that you present yourself in a respectful manner. While there is no official dress code, we advise you to dress in a formal manner; judges often frown upon those litigants who come to court wearing shorts, open-toed sandals or other similar items.
