Group Legal Services – Traffic Tickets

Traffic tickets are one of today’s most common legal issues.

Traffic tickets generally have 2 classifications:

  • Infraction: a traffic offense carrying a fine and the possibility of points on your driving record
  • Traffic misdemeanor: a traffic offense that qualifies as a criminal offense. Some examples include: reckless operation and driving with a suspended license.

It can be a good idea to consult with a lawyer about either type of ticket to make sure you completely understand the charges and which options are available to you. Hyatt group legal services make such consultations easy and affordable.

Keep in mind that challenging a traffic ticket will likely require that you appear in court. Oftentimes, people avoid doing this due to the cost of hiring a lawyer, and because trying a case is more expensive than just paying the ticket.
