Handling Estate Battles With Grace

Hi, I am Ina Aldawen. Upon losing my mother at a young age, I was thrust into the world of estate lawyers in an instant. Although the process could have been a nightmare, I was lucky to end up with an accomplished and kind lawyer. The lawyer taught me all I needed to know about handling my mother's estate properly. I escaped the situation unscathed and with my relationships intact. Although I hope to never have to deal with that situation again, I at least know enough to get through it without too much stress. I built this site to share this knowledge with you in an attempt to help the world deal with estate situations better. Losing a loved one should never include a legal battle over belongings and funds. Unfortunately, it often does, so it's best to stay prepared. Come by often to learn more.

Is It Worth Hiring A Speeding Ticket Attorney?

It's a situation in which most people have found themselves, at least once, at some point in their lives: being handed a traffic ticket for speeding by a police officer. It's not fun, regardless of whether or not one is actually guilty of the offense for which they are being cited. Traffic tickets, and speeding tickets especially, have the potential to increase one's insurance rates and also can affect one's driving score. With enough negative points from continued tickets for speeding violations, one's right to a driver's license can be temporarily suspended (or even permanently suspended in the case of repeat, egregious offenders). What is one to do? Fight the offense themselves? What if they lose? Then, they both are guilty of the offense and still have to pay the fine (as well as any applicable traffic court fees). Many people don't see the value in fighting a speeding ticket and end up paying it (and in the process admitting guilt). This need not always be the case.  

A speeding ticket law firm can assign a lawyer to one's case who can both examine the details of it, as well as litigate all key aspects on one's behalf (in court). The cost of doing so is generally quite negligible (vis-a-vis the inevitable long-term consequence of insurance premium increases) and can have a substantially better outcome.  

Speeding ticket attorneys are well versed in the law and specialize in moving violations (such as speeding tickets). They might be able to have the amount the fine imposed by the court reduced or can lessen the personal impact by making a "no contest" plea, or they might even succeed in having the charges thrown out altogether. In any case, the worst case scenario is that one winds up in the same situation they were before hiring the attorney. There's literally nothing to lose by hiring a speeding ticket attorney and everything to potentially gain.  

The cost of hiring a speeding ticket attorney? That depends. It's usually relatively reasonable. After all, no one has ever been given a life jail sentence from a minor speeding ticket case in a traffic court. Speeding ticket law firms tend to charge hourly, so the overall cost will depend on the total number of hours the attorney needs to study the case, prepare evidence, and/or litigate in court. This is usually not too significant a number of hours, so the total fee tends to be not much more than the ticket fine itself (in most cases). The difference in paying the fine, versus paying the attorney to fight it? With paying the fine, and admitting guilt, one is both out the amount of the fine, as well as has to pay hundreds or thousands more in insurance fees as a consequence. If one pays an attorney, and if they succeed in having the ticket dismissed — one is out about the amount of the ticket, and that's it. Nothing more.  That definitely makes the speeding ticket attorney more than worth the cost.
