Having an experienced traffic ticket lawyer working on your side will make the process a lot easier and often can get you a more favorable outcome.Frequently Charged Traffic Ticket Violation

A. The best Stamford traffic ticket lawyers will tell you that what matters most is what the insurance company sees and how that effects your insurance rates. While it says on the back of a Connecticut traffic ticket that mailing in the ticket or paying “online” will result in “no points”, it still goes on your DMV driving record and will result in increased insurance premiums that may wind up costing you hundreds of dollars in increased insurance premiums for years to come. For this reason, we always advise everyone to plead NOT GUITY and fight your ticket.
A. A lot of out of state drivers who get tickets in Connecticut believe they can mail their ticket it in and avoid any consequences.

A. The Connecticut DMV can really confuse people with the language on the back of the ticket. They say that “no points will be imposed” if you plead “no contest” and pay the ticket online or mail it in. However, they mention “administrative consequences.” The administrative consequences include the driver retraining program and possible suspension of your drivers’ license if you are a repeat offender. So the short answer is yes, your license can be suspended if you mail in tickets “no contest.” The question is how many tickets you get. The best way to approach every ticket you get is to plead NOT GUILTY and call us to fight for the best possible resolution.
A. While our professional fees are generally higher than most traffic tickets, call us for a quote of our low cost flat fees to handle the defense of traffic tickets, when you factor in the hundreds of dollars in increased insurance premiums that paying a traffic ticket is going to cost you over the years to come our fees will seem like a bargain. In most cases our objective is not to fight the amount of the ticket but rather to prevent the ticket from making it onto your driving record and effecting your insurance rates. Sometimes, we are able to negotiate resolutions that involve charitable contributions in the original amount of the ticket and get the ticket dropped. Our objective is to keep your driving record clean. If you pay the fine you are going to get a mark against you that is going to cost you a lot more than the amount of the ticket with your insurance company. Give us a call at (203) 357-5555 and we will go over our flat rate fees and case strategy.
