Do you know anyone who needs traffic lawyers Adelaide? Chances are they have gotten tickets from one of them – or hope to. In today’s tough economy, traffic citations account for a large part of an attorney’s practice. And traffic lawyers have special expertise: defending people accused of driving while under the influence of alcohol. As one might expect, traffic lawyers are a dime a dozen.
Unfortunately, the same entrepreneurial spirit also thrives on the other side of the traffic-ticket spectrum: speeding tickets. No doubt, it is a good idea to drive carefully. But in this tough economy, it is the speeders and drunken drivers that are after the newest lawyers-to-be, to file claims against those who haven’t paid their fines or are otherwise guilty of driving while intoxicated.
It is not uncommon for traffic lawyers Adelaide to be booked on the day-in, day-out for traffic violations. If you get stopped for either an unsafe passing zone or a traffic violation that does not result in a traffic citation, your case is most likely going to wind up in court. And if you are ultimately found guilty, your chances of getting your charges dismissed altogether are slim to none. If your case is dismissed for any reason, you will owe the state and any applicable fines the moment your citation is read.
So, how do you fight your traffic ticket? One answer lies in hiring competent, aggressive representation by experienced traffic lawyers. This may be your best option, especially if you have a good relationship with the arresting officer who is ultimately responsible for your arrest. You should not have to tolerate the harassment of your traffic enforcement agent as he or she attempts to write up the proper citation. Hiring a knowledgeable attorney can improve your chances of avoiding jail time, huge fines, traffic school, loss of license, community service, probation, house arrest, and other penalties that may be assessed as part of a traffic violation.
When choosing which traffic lawyers Adelaide to hire for your case, it is important to choose an attorney who is familiar with local court systems in the jurisdiction in which you were charged. An attorney who represents several local law enforcement agencies will better understand local practices than an attorney with little experience representing the local law enforcement agencies. Additionally, traffic lawyers who represent a wide variety of agencies will have a broader range of clients and will be familiar with the unique issues arising from being a police officer at different agencies. Being familiar with local court practices is also essential because traffic tickets from out of state can have vastly different federal and state laws than those within your state. A good attorney will know which laws apply to your case and can fight your case in whichever way is best for you.
