STOP – DO NOT JUST PAY THE FINE!
With a brief phone call, our attorneys can help you remove the active ticket warrants and help you resolve your Failure to Appear violations. Our Failure to Appear Lawyers will make sure that you understand all the options available in your case and be well informed before you make a decision on how to properly resolve your Failure to Appear tickets.
Our Texas defense attorneys receive many calls from individuals who incorrectly believe that by simply paying the fine stated on their traffic violation, their traffic ticket is resolved and they will never have to deal with it again.
That is not always the case.
As stated in most court’s paperwork and website disclosures, when an individual simply pays the fine associated with their traffic ticket, the defendant is required to waive their right to jury trial and enter a plea of guilty or nolo contendere (no contest).
Convictions for traffic tickets may have unforeseen repercussions.
Some traffic violations that are simply paid may incur the state driving record penalty points, surcharges increase in insurance rates and the possibility of the suspension of your driver’s license. In most Texas jurisdictions, if you received a traffic ticket for speeding 25 miles over the posted speed limit or speeding in a construction zone, the court will likely deny the possibility of negotiating a plea agreement to maintain the speeding ticket off your permanent driving record. Therefore, it is important that you contact our Traffic Ticket Defense Lawyers to discuss the options available in your specific case. If you have already simply paid the fines and pled to a conviction, please contact our traffic ticket lawyers immediately since Texas law limits the amount of time you have to attempt to re-open the case.
Texas Failure to Appear Violations.
When an individual receives a traffic ticket in the State of Texas, the citation will have an appearance date on the ticket. This is the date that you must appear in court to resolve your traffic ticket or pay your traffic ticket. Remember, just paying your traffic ticket will result in a conviction. If you fail to appear the court date on your ticket, the court will issue an active warrant for your arrest and include the additional charge of Failure to Appear to your case. The additional charge of Failure to Appear is a separate charge and carries additional fines. Our Texas Failure to Appear Lawyers have resolved thousands of cases involving Failure to Appear charges. We can assist you in removing the active arrest warrants and resolving the underlying violations.
