No matter whether you drive with a Class C driver's license or a CDL, if you are discovered to be breaking traffic law in any way in Mertens, Texas, you may be pulled over by a police officer and written a traffic ticket. You may be issued your violation for many possible reasons, including driving over the legal speed limit, running a red light, driving with defective auto equipment, or failing to use a turn signal when you should have. No matter the reason behind the issuance of your Mertens traffic ticket, once it is written and placed in your hands, it becomes your responsibility to respond to it before it goes past due and into warrant status. Before responding to your citation, you must carefully consider the outcomes of either pleading guilty to it or challenging it in court. If you plead guilty to the offense you have been charged with, points will be added to your driving record, and you will be obliged to pay a fine. If you choose to dispute your traffic ticket instead, there is a chance that your record may be protected from points. At the Law Office of Attorney Jack Byno, we specialize in the disputation of all forms of traffic violations that may be issued by law enforcement in the Dallas- Fort Worth area. We may be hired to seek you a plea deal in lieu of points added to your driving record, such as deferred adjudication, defensive driving courses, or another favorable agreement, or we may be retained to fight your ticket in a formal trial setting, in an effort to get it dismissed. For additional information on your Mertens traffic ticket and how Jack Byno & Associates may be able to help you challenge it, please fill out our Traffic Ticket Contact Form.
The speeding ticket is a common traffic violation and issued to drivers every day in cities all across Navarro County. Perhaps you have recently been pulled over and issued a speeding ticket in the City of Mertens. Although your violation may appear common and trivial at first glance, it is a serious legal matter just like any other citation, and should be responded to in a timely manner. While Jack Byno & Associates may be retained to help you challenge your Mertens speeding ticket in court should you decide to do so in an effort to protect your driving record from points, if you neither dispute your violation nor plead guilty to it, it will eventually become outstanding and go into warrant. When an overdue speeding ticket goes into warrant, it means that an arrest warrant has been issued for the driver to whom the violation was issued.
The Mertens Municipal Court does not tolerate overdue traffic tickets. If you have neither pleaded guilty to your violation nor taken action to dispute it in court, but have allowed it to go past due, the Municipal Court may very well issue a warrant for your arrest as a penalty. Once an arrest warrant is issued for you over your outstanding traffic ticket, and as long as it remains out for you, you could potentially be sought after by police and arrested at any time of the day or night. If this is the situation you have found yourself in, the only way to ensure your safety from arrest is to get your traffic warrant lifted. Are you interested in avoiding arrest by getting your warrant lifted, but are unsure how to go about accomplishing this endeavor? Then pick up the phone and call the Law Office of Attorney Jack Byno. Since our establishment in 1994, we have gotten Mertens traffic warrants lifted and bonds posted on behalf of eligible clients. If we are hired to lift your warrant, and are able to do so successfully, you will no longer have to worry about being arrested as a result of your warrant, not even during the annual Great Texas Warrant Roundup. If we are also able to post your bond, your case may be represented by our law firm in court at a later date.
The Law Office of Attorney Jack Byno does not only represent Class C drivers against traffic tickets issued to them in Mertens, Texas. Our attorneys also have experience in the defense of individuals who hold commercial driver's licenses. Are you a trucker, emergency vehicle driver, bus driver or other CDL holder? While you strive at all times to abide by traffic law while behind the wheel in Mertens, not only for your safety and for the safety of other drivers, but for the security of your career, it is possible for you to be pulled over and issued a traffic violation. Let's say that you have been issued a ticket for speeding or another moving violation while on duty in Mertens. In contrast to the average driver, you as a commercial motorist must keep your means of living in mind when deciding how to respond to your citation. If, for example, you plead guilty to your CDL or trucking violation, and points are added to your clean driving record, you could be considered an irresponsible driver and your livelihood could be placed in jeopardy. In contrast, if you take action to defend your career and clean record in court, your work could be safeguarded. If you are interested in challenging your CDL violation but are afraid that you will not be able to appear in court to do so because of work obligations, there is a chance that Jack Byno & Associates may be able to appear in court for you. Although commercial motorists are not eligible for deferred adjudication, State-approved driving safety courses and certain other plea deals generally sought after on behalf of Class C drivers, our law firm may still be able to seek you a favorable plea agreement therein.
The Texas Department of Public Safety (Texas DPS) may mail you a DL suspension notice if you have recently been convicted of a serious traffic offense in Mertens, such as Driving While Intoxicated (DWI). Other reasons warranting the suspension of your driver's license may include habitual traffic violations on your driving record, a failed medical evaluation, and even overdue State Surcharges. Once you have received your Notice of Suspension from DPS, you will have only 20 calendar days to respond and request a DL suspension hearing, should you be interested in challenging the looming suspension of your driver's license. If DPS grants you this hearing, consider hiring the Law Office of Attorney Jack Byno to help you dispute your imminent DL suspension in the Navarro County Justice of the Peace Court. While in the past our law firm has successfully helped our clients get their DL suspensions overruled in the Justice Court, but let's assume that your driver's license has already been suspended by Texas DPS. This may be the case if you have lost a DL suspension hearing that was granted to you, or if you were not granted one in the first place. If you are now having trouble finding adequate transportation to work, school, the grocery store, and certain other locations important to your daily life, our law firm may be able to seek you a temporary driver's license referred to as an Occupational DL. If you are granted an ODL for the duration of your Mertens DL suspension, you will be permitted legal, albeit restricted, access to the roads.
If the Department of Public Safety has mailed you a Notice of Suspension informing you of the imminent suspension of your driver's license, but you are unsure of the exact reason why, you may find the answers you are looking for by reviewing a copy of your Texas Driving Record.
