Traffic offenses are committed every day in Southlake, Texas, and every day drivers are pulled over and written traffic violations for their offenses. Whether you hold a Class C driver's license or a CDL, if you have been written a traffic ticket in Southlake, you have a few options to consider. You may plead guilty to your citation, and allow points to be added to your driving record. You may ignore your violation completely, and allow it to go to warrant. Or, you may take action to protect your driving record by disputing it in court. No matter the reason behind the original issuance of your traffic ticket, which can encompass running a red light, coming to a stop over a pedestrian crosswalk, parking in a no-park zone, speeding or committing another moving violation, if you decide to challenge your ticket in hopes of keeping points off your record, Jack Byno & Associates may be able to help you with this endeavor. For more information, please fill out our Traffic Ticket Contact Form.
Speeding tickets are one of the most common traffic violations issued in the City of Southlake, and across the Tarrant County region, and as such are frequestly dealt with by the Law Office of Attorney Jack Byno. If you have been written a speeding violation in Southlake, Texas, have made the decision to dispute it but do not know where to begin, you may benefit from legal counsel provided by our law firm. We have been defending against speeding tickets in the Dallas-Fort Worth area for over 20 years, and while we may be hired to seek you a favorable deal in court, such as State-approved driving safety courses, decreased fines or deferred adjudication, we may also be hired to fight your speeding ticket in the Tarrant County Justice of the Peace Court, if that is the course of action you would rather take.
On a regular basis, the Southlake Municipal Court issues traffic warrants for motorists who have not responded to their pending traffic violations, to the point that their citations have become overdue. Has a warrant for your arrest been issued by the Municipal Court? Unless you take action to get your warrant lifted, you can count on being arrested in the very near future. You may even be arrested during an annual event known as the Southlake Warrant Roundup. During the Southlake Warrant Roundup, which is a branch of the Great Texas Warrant Roundup, law enforcement works around the clock to arrest drivers with pending traffic violations. If your warrant is lifted, you will be safe from arrest during Warrant Roundup season.
CDL holders caught breaking traffic law in Southlake may be pulled over at a police officer's discretion and issued a traffic ticket just like a Class C motorist may be. But in contrast to Class C drivers, commercial drivers rely on their clean driving records for work purposes, and strive at all times to obey traffic law lest they place their records, and means of living, in harm's way. If you have been issued a CDL or trucking violation in Southlake and are now on a mission to protect your livelihood, why not get in touch with the Law Office of Attorney Jack Byno? We have been defending CDL drivers in the Southlake Municipal Court for more than 20 years, so rest assured that if retained to defend you, we will bring just as much experience and expertise to your case. Even though certain plea deals, including defensive driving courses and probation, are out of reach for CDL holders, our law firm may still be successful in its attempts to work out a favorable deal for you in court. Our CDL clients, in many instances, are not required to appear in court with us while we attempt to negotiate a plea bargain for them, which may serve as an added benefit of retaining our services.
You may be up against driver's license suspension in Southlake if you have recently been convicted of a serious traffic offense, such as Driving While Intoxicated (drunk driving), if you have habitual traffic violations on your driving record, or even for more unexpected reasons, including at the behest of a medical professional. You will be made aware of the fact that your DL has been designated for suspension, because the Department of Public Safety will notify you. If you respond to this notice and are permitted a DL suspension hearing in the Tarrant County Justice Court, you may then consider hiring the Law Office of Attorney Jack Byno to fight your DL suspension with you.
Perhaps your driver's license has already been suspended, whether because you were not granted a Southlake DL suspension hearing with DPS, or because you have already lost a hearing that was granted to you. In either case, Jack Byno & Associates may be retained to seek you a temporary DL known as an Essential Need License, or Occupational Driver's License (ODL). If you apply for and are granted an ODL, you would be allowed continuous, legal access to the roads for the duration of your DL suspension. However, if you fail to follow any driving restrictions that may come with your ODL (these restrictions can include when and where you are allowed to drive), you could be up against Driving While License Invalid (DWLI), a charge that can eventually result in your arrest, prolonged DL suspension, and high court fines.
