Getting pulled over for allegedly committing a traffic violation in central Ohio can be much more than a hassle. If you drive for a living, already have a few tickets and points on your record, or cannot handle higher insurance rates, you should consider hiring a traffic ticket lawyer in Franklin County. Hiring a Franklin County traffic ticket lawyer is even more important if you know you did not do anything wrong.
Many effective defenses to traffic tickets exist. Occasionally, because the officer who issued the ticket must show up to trial to testify, just going to court is enough to have a ticket dismissed or reduced for lack of evidence. Keep in mind this will take at least two court dates which means hours of your precious time. Some of that wasted time can be avoided by hiring a traffic ticket attorney in Franklin County Ohio. An attorney can often appear for you at your first court date which means you would not need to be there. You will need to be present in order to testify at trial. DUI / OVI Lawyer in Franklin County
