Warrants Lifted In Addison
The key to handling a warrant in Addison Municipal Court is avoiding the “big mistake.” That is, making sure not panic when the threat of arrest is staring you in the face. You have to make sure you think through what needs to be done to both (1) get the warrant lifted and (2) protecting your ability to drive legally without having your driving privileges suspended. This article is intended to walk you through the steps that need to be taken in Addison Municipal Court to avoid arrest and traffic ticket convictions. If you would like to discuss your case with our experienced team of Addison Traffic Ticket Attorneys after reading this article feel free to contact us today.
You’re Going To Need Help With Your Warrants
Texans are proud. Sometimes to a fault. There are many who have dug themselves a hole to deep to get out of due to simple pride. We have seen many of them in our office after the damage is already done. You cannot handle warrants on your own. You cannot walk down to Addison Municipal Court and pay off your tickets as a knee jerk reaction to the threat of arrest. Paying off tickets with nothing more, causes convictions. Don’t believe us? Look up Article 27.14 (c) of the Code of Criminal Procedure. Payments equal convictions after a case has gone into warrant in Addison. Convictions are reported to DPS. DPS then makes your life very difficult by either (1) penalizing you financially with annual surcharge payments (2) suspending your license or (3) both.
The only real way to get a warrant lifted and not have it reported on your permanent driving record is to retain an attorney. Notice we said attorney, not bail bond company. A bail bond company should be avoided at all cost for traffic ticket warrants in Addison. They are nothing more than middle men in the process. They take your money and hire a lawyer for you and pocket the lion’s share of the profit from the transaction. Later that same attorney will ask you for additional funds to have representation in for the tickets because they, “were only paid to lift the warrant. Avoid this bait and switch tactic and go directly to a lawyer of your choosing so that all of your retainer goes to the attorney to represent you and not to make the bail bond company more profitable.
Once the warrant is lifted an attorney can then attend hearings on your behalf in Addison Municipal Court. Don’t think that because you hired a lawyer your case will be dismissed. That is another falsehood spread by some attorneys in the profession. Later when you get a deal to keep the violation off your record, they then turn around and say “well it is dismissed if you meet all the conditions set forth in the deferred agreement.” We know that this is not what clients think of when the word dismissal is used to sell a service. We respect our clients more than that. As experienced ticket attorneys in Addison it is our job to protect your driving record after the warrant is lifted. Dismissals will be argued for in every case, but may not be possible. When this happens, it becomes our job to advocate and negotiate on your behalf to get the best result possible to protect your driving record and minimize any required conditions that need to be met in order for Addison not to report the violation to DPS.
Again, the key is protecting your record while getting the warrant lifted in Addison. These two steps have to go hand in hand. If not, you could find yourself visiting our office for an occupational license consultation or a class “b” misdemeanor for driving while license invalid.
