SPEEDING - WARRANTS - CDL VIOLATIONS - DL SUSPENSION
Driving over the legal speed limit, driving without your seat belt on, running a red light, and failing to yield right of way are just a few of the reasons you may be pulled over and written a traffic violation in Denton County. If you were recently issued a traffic violation, perhaps in the City of Ponder, Texas, you have a few options to consider when it comes to responding to your offense. You may consider pleading guilty to your violation, but this option will leave irreversible points on your driving record, and you will be obliged to pay a fine. You may consider disputing your violation instead, in an effort to protect your record from points. Or, you may merely ignore your citation, as if it were never written to you, but this lack of action on your part will prompt the Municipal Court to take action against you. If you would rather not plead guilty to your violation but are keen on responding to it before it becomes outstanding, why not take the necessary steps to challenge it instead? Our traffic ticket law firm, Jack Byno & Associates, has been in practice for over 20 years, and may be able to provide you will the information, tools and resources you need to successfully dispute your violation in the Ponder Municipal Court. For more information, please fill out our Traffic Ticket Contact Form.
In Ponder, Texas, motorists are written speeding tickets by law enforcement on a daily basis. If you have a bad habit of driving over the legal speed limit while behind the wheel, chances are high that your will be pulled over and written a speeding violation. Although the speeding ticket is a common traffic violation and may seem trivial at first glance, it should not be taken lightly, as it could quickly becomes a more serious matter if not responded to in a timely manner. While the Law Office of Attorney Jack Byno may be retained to help you defend against a speeding ticket you have been written in Ponder, if you neither challenge your violation before the date it is due, nor plead guilty to it, it will become outstanding and the Municipal Court will issue a warrant for your arrest.
Motorists in the City of Ponder who have neither pleaded guilty to a traffic offense they have been charged with, nor taken the necessary legal steps to dispute it, should not be surprised if the Ponder Municipal Court takes action against them by issuing a warrant for their arrest. A traffic warrant is a serious development and will eventually lead to your incarceration unless lifted in a timely manner. If you are interested in getting your Ponder traffic warrant lifted but do not know how to go about doing so, get in touch with the Law Office of Attorney Jack Byno. Since our founding in 1994, we have gotten traffic warrants lifted and bonds posted on behalf of eligible drivers. In the case that our law firm is successful in its attempts to get your traffic warrant lifted, you will no longer have to worry about being arrested, even during an annual, State-wide event known as the Great Texas Warrant Roundup. During the Warrant Roundup, law enforcement all over the State is required to find and arrest as many drivers as possible who have pending traffic warrants hanging over their heads. If our law firm is also able to post your bond (as a promise to represent you in court), your case may also be defended in court at a later date.
Perhaps you hold a commercial driver's license and have been issued a traffic ticket while driving in the City of Ponder. No matter the reason behind the issuance of your Ponder CDL or trucking violation, you may be especially anxious to challenge your ticket in court, instead of pleading guilty to your offense and allowing points to blemish your clean driving record. As a CDL driver, you understand just how important your clean record is to your career as a firefighter, ambulance driver, bus driver, or professional trucker. Points are added to your record could reflect your inability to drive safely while behind the wheel, thus placing your means of living in jeopardy. If you have made the decision to challenge your CDL violation in an effort to protect your livelihood, Jack Byno & Associates may be able to help you accomplish this feat in court. Although it is unfortunately true that CDL holders are ineligible for deferred adjudication, driving safety courses, and certain other plea bargains often sought after on behalf of Class C drivers, our law firm is experienced and may still be able to negotiate a favorable deal on your behalf in court. If you believe that your case would benefit more from a trial, we may also be hired to fight your CDL or trucking violation in the presence of a judge.
Driver's license suspension is a serious penalty that often follows a grave traffic offense, such as Driving While Intoxicated (DWI) in the City of Ponder. While other reasons warranting DL suspension can include less serious offenses, such as habitual traffic violations on your driving record, if the Texas Department of Public Safety (Texas DPS) has designated your driver's license for suspension, you will be informed of this development via a mailed Notice of Suspension. This DL suspension notice does not mean that your license has already been suspended, but rather that it will be, within 20 calendar days, unless you request and are granted a Ponder DL suspension hearing. If a hearing is granted for you, it will be held in the Denton County Justice Court, and you may hire the Law Office of Attorney Jack Byno to help you defend against the imminent suspension of your driver's license therein.
Has Texas DPS already suspended your driver's license, perhaps because you lost a DL suspension hearing that had previously been scheduled for you? While it is true that you are no longer privileged with the legal ability to drive, Jack Byno & Associates understands that this does not mean that you no longer require transportation to school, your place of employment, and other locations essential to daily life. Therefore, we may be retained to seek you an Occupational Driver's License, or ODL. If you are granted an ODL (sometimes referred to as an Essential Need License), you may use it to drive legally until your regular license is no longer suspended, but please be keep in mind that an ODL is conditional and may come with strict driving stipulations. These ODL driving restrictions commonly encompass when and where you may drive, and failure to obey them can result in a Driving While License Invalid (DWLI) charge, which itself can lead to arrest, high court fines, and even an extended DL suspension.
