Traffic Tickets

traffic-ticketIn Nevada, one has various options on how to handle a traffic ticket. This is because each jurisdiction handles tickets a little differently. Most offer an attorney several options on how to get your ticket reduced. Others might only offer the option of setting your Nevada traffic ticket for trial.

Our office knows the difference and knows that it is important for you to speak to an actual attorney in order to offer the best possible defense. Unlike other firms, you speak to an attorney, not a secretary or paralegal, which cannot give legal advice. Our job is to keep you fully informed of the process and possible outcomes when it comes to traffic tickets.

Nevada uses a demerit point system that assigns points to various types of moving violations. For example, speeding 1-10 may carry 1 point. Depending on the violation your insurance may go up as well. If you get 12 demerit points in a 12-month period, your license may be suspended for receiving the maximum permitted points in 12 months.

Our office fights to get your moving violation and points reduced, ideally with no points or traffic school required. The last thing you want to do is plea guilty and pay a fine and not realize you locked yourself into points when it could have been avoided.

It is possible for a citation to be treated as a criminal matter from the beginning. Typically, this happens with reckless and careless driving. Sometimes this might work to your advantage and other times this does not.

Ignoring Your Traffic Tickets’s Due Date or Missing a Payment

If you fail to appear for a traffic ticket or miss a payment, this will cause the court to issue a failure to appear bench warrant. This will eventually be reported to the DMV who will then suspend your driver’s license. You may also be arrested and brought before the court. If you have a warrant our firm can help as well by filing the proper motions and then handling the underlying offense. Once your warrant is cleared, the court provides a FTA clearance letter for you to take to the DMV to reinstate your driver’s license.

Remember that every jurisdiction is different in Nevada and all offer different options on how your attorney may proceed. Call our firm today to find out what we can do for your ticket or warrant.
