If you are discovered to be breaking traffic law in any way while behind the wheel in Covington, Texas, whether by speeding, driving without your seat belt on, running a red light, or committing another moving violation, you may be pulled over and issued a traffic ticket by police. A traffic ticket issued to you should not be taken lightly, as it could quickly go into warrant if not responded to by the date it is due. In order to respond to your traffic violation, you must either plead guilty to the offense you have been charged with, or take the necessary legal steps to dispute your citation in a court of law. At the Law Office of Attorney Jack Byno, we specialize in the disputation of Covington traffic tickets, and all forms of violations that may be written to drivers in North Texas. Whether you hold a Class C driver's license or a CDL, if it is your goal to defend against your ticket in an effort to protect your driving record, it becomes our mission as well the second we are hired as your legal representatives. While we may be able to seek you a favorable plea deal in court, such as deferred adjudication (probation), reduced fines or State-approved defensive driving courses, in lieu of points added to your driving record, we may also be retained to fight your traffic ticket at trial, in the presence of a judge, jury and the police officer who wrote you the citation. Are you interested in learning more about the possible disputation of your Covington traffic violation? Please fill out our Traffic Ticket Contact Form.
Law enforcement agencies all over the Dallas- Fort Worth metroplex, including the Covington Police Department, are stepping up and cracking down on motorists discovered to be driving over the legal speed limit. Do you have a bad habit of driving over the legal speed limit while behind the wheel? Then do not be surprised if you are pulled over by a police officer and issued a speeding ticket. Even though you must respond to your speeding violation before the date it is due, you do not have to plead guilty to your offense if you would rather not allow points to be added to your driving record. You may instead dispute your speeding ticket, either on your own or with help from a traffic ticket law firm. Because Jack Byno & Associates have been helping motorists in Covington defend against speeding tickets for over 20 years, we may be able to provide you with the information and legal counsel you need to successfully challenge your violation in court.
If you are not already aware, be advised that one of the functions of the Covington Municipal Court is to issue arrest warrants for drivers who are written traffic tickets in Covington, but who do not respond to their violations by the date they are due. In other words, if you are written a speeding ticket or other moving violation in Covington, but allow your citation to become outstanding instead of responding to it, the Municipal Court may be prompted to issue a warrant for your arrest. Once a traffic warrant is out for you as a result of your overdue ticket, the chance of you being arrested and incarcerated at any time of the day or night is always a looming possibility. Fortunately, there is a way that you may avoid arrest as a result of your warrant, and that is to get it lifted. Are you looking to get your Covington traffic warrant lifted? Then look not further than Jack Byno & Associates. Lifting traffic warrant and posting bonds on behalf of our eligible clients are just a few of the legal services our law firm may be retained to provide. If we are successful in getting your warrant lifted and posting your bond, we may represent you in court at a later date, and you will no longer have to worry about being arrested because of your warrant, not even during the Great Texas Warrant Roundup (a time of year when police actively seek out and arrest as many motorists as possible with pending traffic warrants). In contrast, if your traffic warrant remains out for you, you will most likely be arrested and thrown behind bars during Warrant Roundup season, if not before.
In the case that you hold a commercial driver's license and are issued a traffic ticket in Covington, you are understandably concerned about how your career may end up being jeopardized as a result of your violation. This is because your employment as a commercial motorist is dependent upon your clean driving record and reputation as a safe, responsible driver. If you plead guilty to the offense you have been charges with, and points are consequently added to your record, you could be seen as an irresponsible driver and your livelihood could be threatened. At the Law Office of Attorney Jack Byno, we understand your concern for your means of living and are therefore may be retained to provide you with the legal defense your case deserves. We have been defending against Covington CDL and trucking violations since our founding in 1994, and know what it takes to seek plea deals in place of points added to our CDL clients' driving records (please be advised that probation and certain other deals are not available to commercial drivers). If hired to represent you, Jack Byno & Associates may even be able to appear in court on your behalf, if you are unable to appear in court because of work.
In the City of Covington, Texas, drivers who are convicted of grave traffice offenses, such as Driving While Intoxicated (DWI), are habitual traffic offenders, or have overdue State Surcharges may have their driver's license suspended by the Texas Department of Public Safety. Your driver's license may even be suspended for reasons that are more or less out of your control, such as at the recommendation of a physician who has deemed you medically unfit to drive. If your license is in danger of being suspended for any reason (you may learn the exact reason by reviewing a copy of your driving record), DPS will inform you in advance via a mailed Notice of Suspension. Has a Notice of Suspension been mailed to your address in Covington? Then you will have 20 days to respond to it and request a DL suspension hearing at which to dispute the imminent suspension of your driver's license. If you have been granted a DL suspension hearing, but are afraid that you will not be able to get your suspension overruled on your own, consider hiring Jack Byno & Associates to help you accomplish this endeavor in the Hill County Justice Court. Has your driver's license already been suspended by DPS? Are you now struggling to get by on a day-to-day basis without the legal ability to drive yourself to work, school, and other essential locations? Then you may be interested in applying for an Essential Need License. Commonly referred to as an Occupational Driver's License (ODL), this temporary license would allow you to drive legally, even if under certain restrictions, until your Covington DL suspension is over.
