A: As my parents use to say Life if not always Fair.

a lawyer needs more info. However, if YOU were to set up a consultation I WOULD Bill $750 for one and that would not be fair for you AND I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND THAT.

SOME LAWYERS SPECIALIZE IN HANDLING TIX BUT THEY WOULD BILL $800-2500 DEPENDING ON THE COURTHOUSE.

if you broke the law you can either pay your fine, SET THE MATTER FOR TRIAL, OR ASK FOR TRAFFIC SCHOOL TO GET IT OFF YOUR RECORD.
