So, it's just a traffic ticket, right?

Wrong!

Pleading guilty and paying the fine can cost you more
in the long run.  In addition to increasing your
insurance rates, that ticket can also increase the cost
of renewing your license. Before you pay that ticket,
call
Houston traffic ticket attorney Paul B.
Kennedy
to find out what consequences that ticket
might have on your ability to drive in Texas.

Your license may also be suspended if you have four
(4) or more convictions for a moving violation within a
12-month period; or seven (7) or more convictions
within a 24-month period. Before you pay that traffic
ticket, call
Houston traffic ticket attorney Paul B.
Kennedy
.

  • Driving with a suspended license will result in a $250

When you hire a traffic ticket attorney do you
know who's going to show up in court to
represent you? Does that attorney "farm out"
his traffic ticket cases to someone else?
Houston Traffic Ticket Attorney Paul B.
Kennedy
will handle your traffic ticket case
personally. You won't have to wonder who's
going to show up in court to represent you.

Fees for traffic ticket defense start as low as
$100 per citation.
Yes, you can -- and yes, you should.

The Texas Court of Criminal Appeals ruled that
a
laser (LIDAR) reading may not be sufficient to
support probable cause to stop for speeding. Absent
evidence of the trustworthiness of the LIDAR
technology, the results may be inadmissible under
the Texas Rules of Evidence.

If you were cited for speeding by an officer using
LIDAR, call
Houston traffic ticket attorney Paul B.
Kennedy
today.
I can just take defensive driving and get
the ticket dismissed, right?
You got a speeding ticket and your main
concern is keeping it off your driving record.
The prosecutor offers to dismiss the case if
you complete a driver safety course within 90
days. Mission accomplished?

Not quite. You will still have to pay court costs.
You will have to pay for the driver safety
course. You will have to take time out of your
busy day to complete the course.

While there will be no conviction for speeding
on your driving record, there will be a record
that you took a defensive driving course. The
courts and the DPS know that very few people
take defensive driving for anything other than
getting a ticket dismissed.

Did the prosecutor tell you there would be a
record that you took defensive driving? Did the
prosecutor tell you that they review driving
records to see who has taken defensive driving
recently?

If you've been accused of speeding, you need
an
experienced ticket attorney to defend
your rights. The prosecutor has been to law
school and has trial experience. If you're going
to fight your ticket, you need a tough
ticket
lawyer
who knows the law. You need a traffic
ticket attorney
who will fight to keep that
ticket off your driving record.
The officer clocked me with a laser gun. I can't
fight that, can I?
