How much are the attorney's fees in a traffic case?
My goal is to charge a fee that anyone with a car and a license can pay. Having said that, the fee varies with the case. For example, the fee would be less for a “basic” ticket (such as 48 mph in a 35 mph zone) than it would for a more serious case. An example of a more serious case would be one in which you might get more than one insurance point or which might suspend your license. The fee also is higher if there is more than one charge arising from the same incident.
My fee does not include the court costs or fines. Often, the court costs and fine will be written on the ticket. However, those amounts, especially the fine, may change depending upon how we resolve your case (the amounts written on the ticket assume that you plead guilty as charged). If we get the charges reduced the fine may change. If we use a prayer for judgment continued (PJC), there will be no fine, only the court costs.
