If you have received a Houston traffic ticket, the experienced traffic ticket attorneys at the Charles Johnson Law Firm can help. While paying your ticket may seem like the easiest option, traffic violations can have serious consequences. Multiple moving violations may result in a suspended or revoked license. In fact, certain violations, such as passing a school bus, can cause an automatic license suspension even if you have a perfect driving record. The loss of your driver’s license may have far reaching consequences on your personal and professional life. Therefore, it is important that you speak with a Houston traffic ticket lawyer after receiving a traffic ticket to discuss your options and the best strategy.
Traffic convictions not only effect your Texas driving record, but can also negatively impact your insurance rates. Insurance providers believe that a single ticket indicates poor driving and increases the chances of future tickets and traffic accidents. Auto insurance companies review their policyholder’s driving records to determine premium increases and the potential cancellation of policies. A recent study found that a single Texas speeding ticket for 15 mph over the posted limit resulted in an average cost of $744 over the next five-year period!
Our firm provides aggressive representation in order to completely eliminate or minimize the negative impact on your life and ensure the best result possible. We can review your driving record and explain the proper course of action. The goal of our speeding ticket lawyers is to help our clients avoid an insurance rate increase and points or other record of conviction that may lead to suspension or revocation of their licenses. Keeping speeding tickets off of records is usually done through plea bargaining with a prosecutor or state’s attorney, and will involve an amendment of the ticket, probation, or diversion. We can help you with the following violations:
- CDL Traffic Violations (commercial drivers)
- Cell Phone/Texting While Driving Violations
- Driving with a Suspended or Revoked License
- Driving Without a Valid License
- Driving with expired license plates or registration
- Driving Without Valid Insurance
- Failure to reduce speed to avoid an accident
- Failure to Signal
- Failure to Yield to an Emergency Vehicle
- Approaching Disabled Vehicles
- Following too Closely
- Illegal Transportation of Alcohol
- Improper Lane Usage
- Leaving the Scene of an Accident
- Overweight Truck Violations
- Passing a School Bus
- Railroad Crossing Offenses
- Reckless Driving
- Running a Red Light or Stop Sign
- Seat Belt Violations
- Aggravated Speeding
- Speeding in a School Zone
- Speeding in a Construction Zone
- Street Racing/Drag Racing
It is important to note that commercial drivers (i.e. truck drivers) face more severe license consequences than standard operators. CDL traffic tickets must be handled accordingly, often requiring an amendment to the original charge, or trial where appropriate. We understand that a single traffic violation on your record can effect your livelihood and result in loss of employment.
