Have you been cited for a traffic violation? Paying a traffic ticket is admitting that you were guilty of the offense, and can result in points on your driving record, DPS surcharges, increased insurance rates and even the suspension of your license. If you fail to pay the ticket, you will be facing even more serious consequences, such as a traffic warrant.

Fighting Traffic Citations
Texas, like most states, has a point system that is used to monitor dangerous drivers and individuals who commit repeated traffic infractions. In 2003, the Department of Public Safety's (DPS) Driver Responsibility Program was implemented, which is another type of point system used to financially penalize the violators of certain types of traffic offenses such as moving violations, a moving violation that results in an accident, driving with an invalid license, driving without a license and driving while intoxicated. Two to three points are assessed for moving violations, and the accumulation of six points during a three year period will result in a surcharge. You will automatically be surcharged for serious traffic offenses.
If you have received a ticket and are facing DRP surcharges or the suspension of your driver's license, representation by a qualified traffic ticket defense attorney is extremely important and can help protect your driving record. This is especially true for commercial drivers, who can have their commercial drivers licenses (CDL) suspended, and lose their source of income. I am an aggressive litigator that will make sure you have the best representation possible, and can aggressively challenge your citation to help protect your driving record.
