SPEEDING - WARRANTS - CDL VIOLATIONS - DL SUSPENSION
The Law Office of Attorney Jack Byno has been practicing Texas traffic law in the North Texas town of Muenster for over 20 years. During that time, our attorneys have defended both commercial drivers and Class C motorists against all forms of traffic violations that may be issued by police, including those for speeding and other moving violations. Have you been written a traffic violation in Muenster? If you cannot afford points added to your driving record, or if you believe that the police officer who issued your violation was wrong to do so, it would not be wise to plead guilty to the offense you have been charged with. Instead, why not take steps to challenge your ticket in a court of law? Jack Byno & Associates may be able to help you do this, so that you may have a better chance at protecting your driving record from points. Would you like more information on how our law firm may be able to help you challenge your traffic ticket in court? Please complete our Traffic Ticket Contact Form.
Muenster police write speeding tickets to motorists every day in and around the city. If you have a penchant for driving over the legal speed limit in Muenster, chances are high that a police officer will catch you, and will write you a speeding ticket as a penalty. Even though you may think your speeding violation trivial at first, it will quickly become a complicated matter to deal with if not taken seriously and responded to in a timely manner. If you respond to your speeding citation by pleading guilty to it, points will be added to your driving record, and you will be obliged to pay a fine. If you decide to challenge your violation, there is a chance that your record may be protected from points. Jack Byno & Associates may be retained to represent you legally in court, if you decide upon the second option. We may be hired to either fight your case in the presence of a judge, in a trial setting, or to seek a plea deal, such as reduced fines, defensive driving courses, or deferred adjudication, on your behalf.
Once an officer hands you a traffic ticket in the City of Muenster, it becomes your responsibility to respond to it, either by pleading guilty to your offense or by taking action to dispute it in court. If you consider neither of these responses but choose to ignore your violation (or simply forget about it), you can expect for the Muenster Municipal Court to issue a warrant for your arrest. Your case is more serious than it was before once a traffic warrant is out for you, as you could be arrested unless you take action to get your warrant lifted. While you may hire the Law Office of Attorney Jack Byno to get your warrant lifted and to post bond for you, if you do not take action to get your warrant lifted, you could be arrested during the Great Texas Warrant Roundup. The Warrant Roundup takes place all over the State and sees police, on an annual basis, arresting as many drivers as possible who have pending traffic warrants.
At the discretion of a Muenster police officer, a CDL holder found to be breaking traffic law may be pulled over and written a traffic violation, just as a Class C driver may be. But in contrast to a Class C motorist, a CDL holder must be especially careful to abide by traffic law while behind the wheel, as their career as commercial trucker, emergency vehicle driver, or bus driver could be negatively impacted by a trucking violation issued to them in Muenster. In other words, a CDL holder depends upon their clean driving record for work, and their means of living could be jeopardized if they choose to plead guilty to their offense and allow points to be added to their clean driving record. Therefore, if you are considering challenging your violation in court, in an effort to protect your livelihood, get in touch with Jack Byno & Associates. Since 1994, we have sought deals on behalf of our CDL clients in court, in lieu of points added to their driving records, and may be able to do the same for you (although be advised that CDL drivers are not eligible for some plea bargains, such as deferred adjudication).
Let's say that you have recently been made aware that your driver's license has been designated for suspension by the Department of Public Safety. DPS will inform of you of this development via a Notice of Suspension mailed to your address in Muenster. If you are unsure as to why your driver's license is in danger of being suspended, keep in mind that possible reasons can range from medical revocation to a drunk driving (DWI) conviction on your driving record (you may learn the exact reason by requesting a copy of your record). But no matter the reason warranting your DL suspension, you may request a DL suspension hearing with DPS, which, if granted to you, would provide you with the opportunity to challenge your impending DL suspension in the Cooke County Justice Court.
While the Law Office of Attorney Jack Byno may be retained to help you challenge your looming Muenster DL suspension in the Cooke County JP court, sometimes we are not able to simply because our clients' driver's licenses have already been suspended. If your DL was recently suspended by DPS and you are now struggling to do without it, you should know that Jack Byno & Associates may be hired to seek you an Occupational Driver's License (ODL), which is a temporary DL sometimes referred to as an Essential Need License. If you are granted an ODL, you may use it to drive yourself to work, the grocery store, school, and other locations essential to your daily life. Bear in mind, however, that it is a privilege to hold an ODL, and failure to obey any driving stipulations that may be attached to it (such as when and where you may drive) can result in Driving While License Invalid (DWLI). DWLI is a serious charge and may result in your arrest.
