Should I a higher an attorney for a speeding ticket?
This is a question that many drivers who had been pulled over ask.  The short answer is probably yes. Traffic tickets can have a lasting impact for El Paso drivers. With Texas now on the point system you can be faced with surcharges up to $750 on top of the original citation fine.  One needs to consider the possibility of higher insurance rates for your vehicle and for CDL drivers a ticket on your record can have even more far-reaching consequences.

Moving violations occur while the vehicle is in motion and while typically charged as a Class C misdemeanor, these violations can be charged as Class A or B misdemeanors or, in more serious cases, can be charged as a felony. A moving violation will generally involve paying a fine and you will have to deal with the points which are placed on your permanent driving record.

An attorney’s relationship with the prosecution and experience of plea-bargaining can be very helpful to you.
