Our goal for every client we represent is to obtain a result with the least possible impact on our clients. Everything that we do is with that goal in mind.
However, while dismissal of a charge is obviously the very best possible outcome, that result is not always possible. NO ATTORNEY CAN OR SHOULD GUARANTEE A RESULT OR SPECIFIC OUTCOME. Results will depend on the specifics of the incident, the officer’s quality of work, the prosecutor (if any), the judge we draw on the date of hearing, your driving history, witnesses and any admissions by you, among other factors.
If a dismissal does not look likely, there are other options by which may minimize a tickets impact on your license or insurance.
To repeat: “Our goal for every client we represent is to obtain a result with the least possible impact on our clients. Everything that we do is with that goal in mind.”
I only defend traffic tickets which are infractions, with an exception for Driving With License Suspended 3rd degree charges, which are suspensions based on traffic violations, Reckless Driving and Open Container charges. This allows me to focus on the areas of law that I have come to know best, and so better represent my clients.
I do not represent clients on any other criminal matters even when associated with a traffic violation. I do not represent clients who have received parking tickets, photo speeding tickets, or photo red light tickets.
My representation on accident cases is limited to a traffic infraction associated with the accident. I do not represent clients on property damage or personal injury claims.
An agreement to provide legal representation is a contract between a client an attorney. This relationship is not created until both parties agree to it. Use of this website or the free consultation offer does not create an attorney-client relationship. We do wish to speak with by phone or email to get the specifics of your case before entering into an agreement, but such communication does not create an agreement of representation.
To establish an attorney-client relationship with our office, first the Fee Agreement must be filed out, signed by the client, returned to our office, and the fee payment made in full . The attorney-client relationship exists once our office has signed the returned documents and received the fee.
I DO NOT GUARANTEE A DISMISSAL OF ANY CHARGES, NOR ANY OTHER OUTCOME. I CAN ONLY GUARANTEE MY BEST EFFORTS ON YOUR BEHALF. YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR THE TIMELY PERFORMANCE OF ANY CONDITIONS AGREED TO WITH THE COURT OR PROSECUTOR, AND ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY COURT ORDERED FINES OR COSTS.
However, if your ticket is found committed as written (that is, excluding dismissals, not committed findings, amendments, reductions, deferrals, traffic school, etc…) we will typically refund your fee. There are a few courts where we do not make that offer but we will notify you in advance of hiring us.
