Fast Orlando Ticket Lawyer Response!

You Got A Traffic Ticket

Not surprising. Florida issues hundreds of thousands of tickets every year!

Many people think they only have 2 options when they get a ticket in the Orlando area; pay it or take traffic school. However, you can also hire a lawyer to request a hearing.

There are benefits to taking your ticket to a hearing,…

… especially if you cannot take a traffic school option. We keep points off people’s driving records every day by going to a hearing. Often this does not include taking a school and if a school is required it does not use up one of your school option elections.

Do Your Traffic Tickets Have a Court Date?

If your ticket requires you to go to court then it is either a civil infraction that requires a mandatory hearing (such as driving 30+ mph over the speed limit) or it is a criminal charge (DUI, Leaving the Scene, etc.). If criminal go HERE. If civil, continue reading.

Orlando Area Ticket? Don’t Panic!

You have 30 days from the day you received the traffic ticket to decide what to do. You should take this time to read the ticket. You will realize that you have several options (called elections). The three main ones are:

  • Pay the traffic ticket (not suggested)
  • Elect a traffic school
  • Request a hearing

1. Never Just Pay The Ticket

If you just pay the traffic ticket without electing a hearing or traffic school you will be assessed points. Points lead to:

  • Higher Insurance Rates.
  • Driver’s License Suspensions.

Learn more about this on my Point Suspensions and License Suspension pages.

If you are concerned about the status of your driver’s license,…

…you can find out what the status is on my Driver’s License Check page. Find out if your license is valid, suspended, or pending suspension.

2. Elect A Driving School; No Ticket Lawyer Needed

Florida law allows you to elect a driving school once every 12 months up to five times for traffic tickets. You should take this option if you do not hire a lawyer. Reasons you may not be eligible for traffic school:

  • You have elected driving school fives times.
  • You elected driving school within the last 12-months.
  • You have a Commercial Drivers License.
  • The citation requires a mandatory court appearance.

Elect a traffic school if you believe you are guilty of the infraction and want the cheapest method of keeping points off your license. The Clerk will make you pay for the ticket immediately and will give you 90 days to complete the school and provide a copy of the certificate to the clerk’s office.

3. TRAFFIC TICKET DEFENSE: Hire Orlando Ticket Lawyer

If you elect a hearing I would strongly suggest that you hire a ticket lawyer to represent you. In fact, don’t bother electing the hearing – when you hire me,  I will do everything for you. Go to my Benefits of Hiring a Lawyer page for more information.

You should elect a hearing if you cannot take the driving school option and:

  • You are concerned about points on your driver’s license.
  • You have many points on your driver’s license and you are concerned about a point suspension.
  • You believe that the citation is wrong and you want your day in court.
  • You received a citation for “careless driving” involving an accident.
  • You received a speeding ticket.
  • You received a Driving With A Suspended Driver’s License ticket.

I do not suggest that you elect a hearing without hiring a traffic ticket lawyer to represent you. However, you can make this election on your own and represent yourself if you want to. You can always hire a lawyer anytime before the hearing.

Just because you elect a hearing (or hire a lawyer) does not mean you are guaranteed no points. Learn more about this on my Traffic Ticket Guarantees page.

-Benefits of Hiring Our Office To Represent You

I handle all kinds of tickets from speeding tickets and toll tickets to serious accident cases. Whether you have a regular license or a commercial driver’s license. BY HIRING OUR OFFICE you will save the time spent:

  • Contacting the Clerk of Court (I notify you when it is done).
  • Electing a hearing (I notify you of the hearing date).
  • Going to the hearing (I notify you of the result).
  • Dealing with continuances and delays (I notify you of delays).
  • Preparing your case.

Or if you just want to have someone else deal with your traffic tickets – a ticket lawyer can do everything. I can make the election for a hearing, go to court, deal with delays, bring the knowledge of the law, and in most cases – you never have to appear in court. If I need you to appear at the hearing (usually for a ticket involving an accident) I will let you know.

-Our Goal When Representing You in Court

Orlando Ticket Lawyer GOAL is to try and have your ticket:

  • dismissed,
  • keep points off,
  • avoid traffic school, and/or
  • reduce the fine amount.

NOTE: Understand that none of that may occur. By electing a hearing the court can assess a fine up to $500 (rare) and/or require you to attend a driving school. Our results depend on your driving history and the nature of the current ticket. Our main goal is to protect your privilege to drive. Keeping points off is a priority.

4. Think You Are Too Late To Fight Your Ticket – You’re Probably Wrong

Even if you are past 30-days since you received the ticket, odds are we can still help. The 30-day time frame is just the period you have to make an election before a late fee is applied. A ticket lawyer can elect a hearing for you up to 180-days after you receive the ticket.

Tickets that are past the 30-day window and possibly in collections require special attention. Don’t worry – we may be able to straighten it out for you.

If you’d like to hire the Orlando Ticket Lawyer team to represent you for your ticket please contact us. Tell us your name (as written on your license), the ticket number, what the ticket is for, and in what county it was issued. If it is a speeding ticket please let me know how fast the officer said you were going (e.g., 85/70, meaning 85 mph in a 70 mph zone). Another option is to scan your ticket to .PDF format and email it to me – or fax (407-841-9090) the ticket.

NOTE: We are not responsible for late fees or reinstatement fees. Keep in mind that you have 30 days from the date you received the ticket to make an election. If you hire me after 25 days since you received the ticket I cannot promise that the election will be made before 30 days has expired.
