SPEEDING - WARRANTS - CDL VIOLATIONS - DL SUSPENSION
The Forest Hill Police Department works around the clock to ensure that drivers in and around the city obey traffic law at all times. If you are caught violating traffic law in any way, whether by speeding, disregarding a traffic control device, driving with defective auto equipment, driving without your seat belt on, or committing another ticketable offense, you may be pulled over by a police officer and issued a traffic ticket. As a licensed Texas driver, it is your responsibility to respond to your Forest Hill traffic violation by the date it is due, by either pleading guilty to it or taking the necessary legal steps to challenge it in court. If you decide to plead guilty to your violation, you can expect to pay a fine, as well as for points to be added to your driving record. Should you instead decide to challenge your charges, your driving record may be protected from points. The Law Office of Attorney Jack Byno may be able to help you dispute your traffic ticket should you decide against pleading guilty to it. We are a North Texas-based traffic ticket law firm that has been serving the Dallas- Fort Worth metroplex for over 20 years. We may be hired to help you defend against your violation in court whether you drive with a CDL or Class C driver's license. Would you like more information on our law firm and the possible disputation of your Forest Hill traffic ticket? Please complete our Traffic Ticket Contact Form.
Have you been issued a citation for driving over the speed limit in Forest Hill, Texas? If you are keen to protect your driving record from points, then you may forego the option of pleading guilty to your violation in favor of exercising your right to challenge it in court. While you may do this by seeking a plea deal, such as deferred adjudication or driving safety courses, in lieu of points added to your driving record, perhaps you are convinced that your violation was issued to you under questionable circumstances, and is therefore debatable in a court of law. In this case, you may choose to fight your Forest Hill speeding ticket at trial, in an effort to get it dismissed completely. Keep in mind, however, that while the Law Office of Attorney Jack Byno may be able to seek a plea deal on your behalf in court, if a trial is scheduled for you, you would be required to appear with us in court before the presiding judge.
If you are not already aware, you should know that the Forest Hill Municipal Court does not tolerate overdue traffic violations of any kind. If you do not take responsibility for a traffic ticket issued to you in the city, and neither plead guilty to it nor challenge it before it goes past due, the court will eventually take notice and issue a warrant for your arrest as a penalty. An arrest warrant is just as serious as it sounds and will eventually lead to your incarceration, unless you take swift legal action to get it lifted. If you are now looking for a way to avoid arrest, look no further than the Law Office of Attorney Jack Byno. We know what it takes to get arrest warrants lifted in Forest Hill, and having been doing so on behalf of eligible clients since our establishment more than 20 years ago. If we are able to post your bond and get your traffic warrant lifted, you will be safe from arrest (even during Warrant Roundup season) and your case may be represented by our law firm in court at a later date. In contrast, should your traffic warrant remain out for you, you may very well be arrested during (if not before) the Great Texas Warrant Roundup, an annual event that sees police all across the State cracking down on drivers with pending traffic warrants.
Being pulled over for a traffic stop in Forest Hill, Texas is a stressful experience for any driver, but perhaps more so for individuals who hold commercial driver's licenses. This is because CDL holders, who include emergency vehicle drivers, truckers, and school bus drivers, must take especial care to maintain their clean driving records, which serve as a form of job security. In other words, if you plead guilty to a CDL or trucking violation issued to you in Forest Hill, and points are added to your driving record, you could be seen as an irresponsible driver by your employer, and your livelihood could be placed on the line. Fortunately, you may take action to challenge your Forest Hill CDL or trucking violation, in an effort to defend your clean record, rather than plead guilty to it. The Law Office of Attorney Jack Byno may be able to help you with this task in court. While it is true that you as a CDL holder are not eligible for State-approved driving safety courses, probation, and certain other plea agreements available to the average driver, our law firm has been defending commercial motorists in court for over 20 years, and may still be able to reach a favorable deal for you therein.
Have you received a DL suspension notice from the Texas Department of Public Safety? You may have if you were recently convicted of drunk driving (DWI) in Forest Hill, have overdue State Surcharges, or habitual Forest Hill traffic violations on your driving record. Although this notice pertains to the imminent suspension of your driver's license, do not panic upon receiving it. It does not necessarily mean that your license has already been suspended by DPS, but rather that it soon will be, and within 20 calendar days, unless you request a DL suspension hearing. Should you be granted a hearing by DPS, it will be held in the Tarrant County Justice Court, where you will be provided an opportunity to challenge your looming DL suspension. While Jack Byno & Associates may be retained to help you dispute your DL suspension in the JP Court in an attempt to get it overruled, we may also be able to help you stay behind the wheel legally should your driver's license already be suspended. We may do this by seeking you a temporary driver's license known as an Occupational DL, or Essential Need License. If granted to you, you may use your ODL to drive to your place of employmet, school functions, and other venues essential to your daily life, for as long as your DL suspension is in effect.
