SPEEDING - WARRANTS - CDL VIOLATIONS - DL SUSPENSION
Jack Byno & Associates is a respected traffic ticket law firm that has been serving motorists issued citations in the Dallas- Fort Worth metroplex for over 20 years. With experience defending both Class C drivers and CDL holders in area Municipal Courts and Justice Courts, we are skilled in the disputation of all forms of traffic violations that may be issued by local law enforcement. Perhaps recently while driving in Godley, Texas, or a nearby Johnson County town, you were pulled over by a police officer for speeding, running a red light, driving with defective auto equipment, without valid registration, or another violation. If you were issued a traffic ticket for your offense, it is up to you to respond to your violation by the date it is due. In order to respond to your violation, you may either plead guilty to it, and allow points to be added to your driving record, or take the necessary steps to challenge it in a court of law, in an effort to protect your record.
If you should decide to dispute your violation, but believe that your case would benefit from professional legal defense, get in touch with the Law Office of Attorney Jack Byno today. We may be retained to either plead your case for the best possible deal, such as reduced fines, deferred adjudication, or defensive driving courses, or we may be hired to fight your case at trial, in the presence of a judge. If you would like more information on our law firm and how we may be able to help you defend against your Godley traffic violation, please complete our Traffic Ticket Contact Form.
As a licensed driver, it is your responsibility to obey all Texas traffic laws while behind the wheel in Godley, even the legal speed limit. That being said, driving over the speed limit is an easy, and ticketable, traffic offense to commit. If a police officer in Godley pulls you over for driving too fast, and consequently writes you a speeding ticket, you have an important decision to make, just as would if you were issued any other traffic violation. You must decide whether it would be in your best interest to plead guilty to your offense or to challenge it in an effort to protect your driving record from points. While Jack Byno & Associates may be hired to help you dispute your citation, if you do not respond to it, but simply allow it to go past due, the Godley Municipal Court will take notice.
The Godley Municipal Court does not tolerate overdue traffic tickets, and may be prompted to issue you a traffic warrant if your violation goes past due. Has the Godley Municipal Court issued a warrant for your arrest over your outstanding traffic ticket? Then your imminent arrest and incarceration is a possibility for as long as your warrant remains out. Fortunately, the Law Office of Attorney Jack Byno is here to help you stay out of jail and behind the wheel. We are often retained to lift traffic warrants and to post bonds for eligible clients so that they may be safe from arrest, even during Warrant Roundup season (a time of year when police crack down on drivers with pending warrants), and also so that they may be represented in court at a later date. Get in touch with our law firm today and see if we can't get your Godley traffic warrant lifted.
Are you a school bus driver, emergency vehicle operator, trucker or otherwise a CDL motorist? Then you may be especially concerned about a traffic ticket issued to you in Godley, Texas, perhaps even more so than the average, Class C driver would be. This is because you as a commercial driver depend upon your clean driving record to remain on the job and behind the wheel. Your clean record is proof that your possess the ability to drive responsibly while behind the wheel, and if points are added to it as a result of your Godley CDL or trucking violation, you could be seen as an unsafe driver and your means of living could be jeopardized. At the Law Office of Attorney Jack Byno, we understand just how closely your clean driving record is tied to your work. While it is unfortunately true that CDL holders are not eligible for deferred adjudication, defensive driving courses, or other alternatives to points, our law firm is experienced in the defense of CDL drivers, and may still be able to negotiate a favorable deal in your behalf in court.
Sometimes the Texas Department of Public Safety is prompted to suspend the driver's licenses of motorists who have been convicted of serious traffic offenses, such as DWI, in Godley, Texas. Other reasons warranting DL suspension can include unpaid State Surcharges, causing a car accident but failing to provide proof of auto insurance, and even medical revocation at the recommendation of a physician. No matter why your driver's license has been scheduled for suspension by DPS, you will be warned of this development in advance, via a Notice of Suspension mailed to your address in Godley. Once you have received your notice, you will have 20 days to respond to it and request a DL suspension hearing. If DPS grants you this hearing, it will be held in the Johnson County Justice Court, where Jack Byno & Associates will appear to help your defend against your looming DL suspension, if hired to do so. But let's presume that your driver's license has already been suspended by DPS, perhaps because you lost a DL suspension hearing that was previously granted to you. In this case, our law firm may still be of service to you. We may be retained to seek you a temporary DL called an Occupational Driver's License (or Essential Need License). If granted to you, this ODL would allow you legal, albeit restricted, access to the roads for the duration of your DL suspension, so that you may continue to drive to work, school, the grocery store, and other locations necessary to your daily life.
