Answers To Your Traffic Ticket Questions
At Sparr, Belville & Brown, LLC, we have more than 30 years of experience handling traffic tickets for clients in and around the Oshkosh area. We get many calls from potential clients who want to know more about their options regarding traffic tickets they have received. We have answered a few of those questions below and invite you to reach out to us if you need additional information.
How do you know if you need an attorney for your case?
The easiest way to find out if you need an attorney is to give us a call at 920-335-1413. We will get the details of your case and tell you whether we believe it is worth hiring an attorney to fight for you. We will quote you a price on what our services will cost and then discuss what we can do to help you.
Once you have this information, you can decide on the best approach to take. Some tickets might be easily resolved without an experienced lawyer, while others have significant consequences that may result in high fines, potential jail time or the loss of your driving privileges.
What penalties may apply based on the ticket you receive?
The answer to this depends on the ticket as well as your driving history. If you have had several tickets in the past few years, the penalties could be much higher than they otherwise would be in a typical situation.
We can explain the penalties and help you understand additional issues you need to be concerned about, including higher insurance premiums. We know how important your license is to you, and we can help you learn what you need to do to stay on the road.
Are there advantages to hiring a local attorney?
Absolutely. In the Fox Valley, many law enforcement agencies issue tickets. Many communities depend on the income they receive from traffic tickets to help meet their yearly budgets. In these villages, towns and cities, officers may be extremely aggressive when it comes to writing tickets, for both locals and those visiting Wisconsin from out of state.
Because we live in the area, we know the options that are available depending on where the ticket was received. Our lawyer can provide you with a realistic overview of your options, which may include simply paying the fine and having the ticket removed from your driving record. If your case ends up going to trial, we have in-depth knowledge of the local rules for each of the judges and know what we need to do to help you have the best chance of defeating your ticket.
