KNOWING YOUR RIGHTS UNDER TEXAS LAW
What is a traffic ticket?
A traffic ticket is a citation or summons issued to a person who has violated
a motor vehicle law in the state of Texas.
An example of this violation would be a speeding ticket or getting a ticket
for running a stop sign. The citation or summons, which is issued by a police
officer or other authorized representatives of the government, is an order to
appear in court before a judge. After being issued the traffic ticket
(citation or summons), the person accused of violating the law can remain
free pending his/her need to appear in court.
WHY YOU NEED A LAWYER FOR TRAFFIC VIOLATIONS
Traffic tickets can have serious consequences. While most traffic tickets are just "violations"
under Texas law, many people don't understand that some traffic ticket
violations are actually criminal charges such as driving a vehicle while your
license was suspended. A suspension can happen when you have several minor
tickets or just one very serious ticket. Many motorists have their license
suspended simply because they failed to respond to the traffic ticket court
date and don't know what to do when it becomes a problem years later.
That's why these matters must be handled in a timely and professional manner.
At the law offices of Jim Lollar, Attorney At Law with office located in Fort Worth and Arlington,
Texas we can help take care of your traffic
tickets, even if you live outside the State of Texas.
If you have received a traffic ticket violation (citation or summons) you
have the constitutional right to defend yourself and confront the witnesses
against you. Why hire a defense lawyer to fight a traffic ticket violation?
Because if you are convicted, you will pay fines, you may have points put on your license, you may face
suspension or even revocation of your license, not to mention increased
payments to your auto insurance company. And besides, most jobs don't prepare
you to cross-examine a police officer. That is something best left to someone
who knows the rules of the game -- your attorney. An experienced Fort Worth traffic
attorney can help even the odds against you.
Defending yourself in court can be complicated, but don't plead guilty by
mail! Often we can help get the ticket reduced or perhaps dismissed. With our
experienced Fort Worth
attorneys specializing in traffic tickets, we help assist clients resolve all

Attorney Jim Lollar has been practicing Municipal/Traffic Ticket law for over
25 years and was a Municipal Judge for the City of Fort Worth for 2 years.
So, as an experienced Fort Worth area traffic ticket
attorney, he is familiar with most of the municipal and Tarrant county
judges in the Fort Worth area, as well as the prosecutors and court
personnel, better than an attorney who does not regularly practice in the
field of fighting traffic ticket violations such as speeding tickets, running
a stop sign or red light, no proof of insurance violations, alcohol related
violations and many other types of citations.
Most traffic tickets in Texas
are Class "C" misdemeanors which, while criminal offenses, are
punishable by a fine not to exceed $1000.00. Don't make the mistake as so
many do and simply just pay the ticket. By pleading guilty and paying the
traffic fine, that citation is now put on your driving record for up to 36
months with the added potential of raising your auto insurance rates. Too
many convictions can result in the suspension of your Texas drivers license and can adversely
affect other possible criminal and civil actions which can be presently
pending or situations arising in the future.
As you can see, violations that are reported to a person's driving record can
result in far more serious consequences in addition to the payment of fines
and court costs: more on Texas traffic
