Traffic Ticket Attorneys in Tampa, FL

If you received a traffic ticket in Tampa, Hillsborough County, FL, don't pay that ticket until you speak with an experienced attorney. Our lawyers fight traffic tickets in Tampa and Plant City, Hillsborough County, FL. If the officer that wrote the ticket fails to appear in court for the trial then the case might be dismissed. 

Even if the officer does appear, the judge must decide the case under the "beyond all reasonable doubt" standard. In some cases, to avoid a trial the court will agree to "withhold adjudication" so that you are not convicted of the offense and you do not incur any points on 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 expensive for a possible suspension or revocation of your driver's license for excessive points based on the number of prior conviction.

For drivers of commercial motor vehicles and holders of a commercial driver's license (CDL), successfully fighting the ticket in Tampa or Plant City, Hillsborough County, FL, may be the only way to maintain the CDL.
