Collierville, TN asked in Traffic Tickets for Arkansas

Q: DFW, TX resident, recently rcvd 3/1 tkt (speeding over 15 mph, reckless driving -1st dg, endanger welfare) in AR

I rcvd 3 tickets traveling thru AR to Memphis for MLK DAY, I would like to obtain an attorney due to the seriousness of the charges & the discrepancies from the Troopers verbal statements vs the charges listed on the citation. Will obtaining an attorney help w/ possible deferred adjudication on at least two of the citations (reckless driving and endanger welfare incompetent)? Per my citation my court appearance is scheduled for 3/6/20.

A: Maybe, maybe not. There are several issues the attorney would have to evaluate, some may not be apparent until discovery is reviewed. What Arkansas county were you in and what court is listed on the ticket?
