Traffic Ticket Attorneys in Fort Lauderdale, FL
If you received a traffic ticket in Fort Lauderdale or Broward County, FL, then don’t pay that ticket until you speak with an experienced attorney. Our lawyers fight traffic tickets throughout all of the Broward County Courthouse locations including:
- the Broward County Courthouse in Fort Lauderdale;
- the North Regional Courthouse in Deerfield Beach;
- the South Regional Courthouse in Hollywood; and
- the West Regional Courthouse in Plantation, FL.
If the officer that wrote the ticket fails to appear in court for the trial then the case might be completely dismissed. Even if the officer does appear, the judge must decide the case hasn’t been proven “beyond all reasonable doubt” and return a “not guilty” verdict. In some cases, to avoid a trial the court will agree to “withhold adjudication” so that you are not convicted of the violation (which prevents any points from being added to your driving record).
If you just pay the ticket, then you will be convicted of the offense and receive points on your driver’s license. The attorney fees are often far cheaper than a conviction. A conviction means you must pay the fine, court costs, increased insurance premiums and the expense for a possible suspension or revocation of your driver’s license for excessive points based on the number of a prior conviction.
For drivers of commercial motor vehicles and holders of a commercial driver’s license (CDL), successfully fighting the ticket in Fort Lauderdale, Deerfield Beach, Hollywood, or Plantation, FL, may be the only way to maintain the CDL.
