Should You Hire an Attorney on a Traffic Ticket?

Whether you should hire a traffic ticket attorney on your Los Angeles traffic ticket depends on your specific circumstances.

Here are a few points you may want to consider:

  1. You failed to appear at your initial court hearing, or failed to pay your traffic ticket by the due date at the bottom of your citation.
  2. You reside outside of California but need to appear in traffic court to handle your situation.
  3. Your time is worth more than the cost of an attorney to handle the ticket for you. 
  4. You are not traffic school eligible.
  5. You are a commercial driver and your job is at stake.
  6. You have a valid defense to your traffic ticket.

Other factors may apply to your situation such that hiring a traffic ticket attorney is the best action in your situation.
