Licensed Texas drivers know that it is their responsibility to drive safety and to abide by traffic law at all times when behind the wheel. Therefore penalties may be in order when drivers are caught breaking the law in Garland and other Dallas County communities. A common penalty for breaking Texas traffic law is the traffic ticket. No matter whether you hold a CDL or Class C driver's license, you may be pulled over by police and written a traffic ticket if you are caught running a red light or stop sign, driving without your safety belt on, or committing another moving violation. Fortunately, if you are written a traffic ticket in the City of Garland, the Law Office of Attorney Jack Byno may be retained to challenge your violation so that points may be kept off your driving record. Our law firm has been in practice since 1994, and holds the experience and expertise you need to successfully protect your driving record and defend against your citation.

Speeding is an easy traffic offense to commit and is therefore one of the most common violations issued in the City of Garland. Have you been pulled over in Garland and issued a speeding ticket? If you plead guilty to your violation, points will be added to your driving record, no matter what class driver's license you hold. The Law Office of Attorney Jack Byno may be hired to challenge your speeding ticket in court if you would like for us to seek a plea deal on your behalf, such as probation or State-approved defensive driving courses, but we may also be hired to fight your speeding violation at trial, if it is decided that your case would be better defended before a jury.
Be aware that the Garland Municipal Court will issue a warrant for your arrest if you neither plead guilty to a traffic ticket that has been written for you, or take the steps necessary to challenge it. In order to avoid arrest once a traffic warrant has been issued for you, you will need to get your warrant lifted as soon as possible. Jack Byno & Associates may be hired to get your warrant lifted and to post bond for you, so that you may avoid arrest before or during the Garland Warrant Roundup. The Garland Warrant Roundup is an extension of the Great Texas Warrant Roundup, during which police all over the State are ordered to arrest as many drivers as possible who have been issued traffic warrants by the court on a previous date.
CDL holders may be pulled over and written traffic tickets in Garland, Texas, just like the average Class C driver, but are not eligible for deferred adjudication and other plea deals that are often available to Class C drivers. Even so, Jack Byno & Associates have been defending against CDL and trucking violations in Garland for over 20 years, and may be able to work out a satisfactory deal in court on your behalf. In the case that you do hold a commercial driver's license, and have been written a traffic ticket, it may be in your best interest to seek professional legal defense from our law firm, as we may be able to help you keep points off your driving record (points that may otherwise threaten your livelihood).
Your driver's license may be suspended by the Department of Public Safety if you commit habitual traffic violations in Garland, Texas, if you are convicted of a serious traffic offense, such as Driving While Intoxicated (drunk driving), or if you fail to pay any State Surcharges owed. Your driver's license may also be suspended for more unexpected reasons, such as at the behest of a physician. In any case, if you respond to a Notice of Suspension mailed to you by DPS and are granted a DL suspension hearing, our attorneys may be able to dispute the suspension of your driver's license in the Dallas County Justice Court. In the case that your driver's license has already been suspended, our law firm may still be of assistance to you. We may be able to obtain you a temporary DL known as an Occupational Driver's License (ODL), or Essential Need License. An ODL, if granted to you for the duration of your Garland DL suspension, would allow to drive to work, school, the grocery store, and other locations you require access to every day.
