Traffic offenses are the most common reason most people find themselves involved with the court system. There is a wide range of traffic offenses, from the common, such as no operating license, to the rare, such as failure to yield to an emergency vehicle. People often think that they don’t need an attorney for traffic offenses, and sometimes, they are right. However, they often underestimate how frustrating the process can be. The cost of an attorney can easily be worth the time and hassle of taking time off of work to go to court. Further, many people think that they will just go get a PJC (prayer for judgment continued), not realizing that they may not be eligible for one, or that it may not be the best solution for their case. You typically can only get PJC per household every three years, and PJCs cannot be used for all offenses. Further, the DMV will only recognize certain PJCs for purposes of license points. Getting a lawyer to handle your matter will give you confidence that your best interests are protected.
