Fort Bend County Traffic Ticket Lawyer
A traffic ticket in Sugar Land, Katy, Richmond, Rosenberg, Missouri City, Fulshear, or any other area in Ft. Bend County will be associated with a particular court. While general Texas traffic ticket law and statutory procedures govern all Texas courts, drastic differences still exist among all of the individual courts.
The law leaves many policies and procedures to the discretion of the various presiding judges, and to local politics, both because judges must retain their independence, and because there are infinite variations among each court in ticket volume, physical courtroom space, budgets, and police manpower, among other variables.
As a competent Sugar Land ticket lawyer and provider of Ft. Bend County-wide traffic ticket legal defense, Ross Torres will go to court and fight to keep a ticket from turning into a conviction which could lead to higher insurance rates. Ross has his own computerized database filled with information developed over the years for each of the dozens of traffic courts in Ft. Bend County that he visits.
Be aware of all the hoopla you hear about the annual “warrant roundup.’’ The media seems never to include the option of posting a bond to remove your warrant. Instead, the public is warned to come in and pay before the arrest dragnet goes into affect. Simply paying your ticket results in a conviction on your driving record, but they don’t tell you that. Posting a bond removes the warrant for your arrest, and resets the case for another day in court. Let Ross help you remove your warrants and keep your driving record clear.
Also, if you hold a commercial driver’s license, or if your violation occurred in a construction zone when workers were present, there are special restrictions. The legislature has taken away several important options. For example, you cannot qualify for defensive driving or for deferred disposition. Deferred disposition is a kind of deferred adjudication, where your violation is dismissed if you satisfy court-ordered terms of unsupervised probation. Instead, if you hold a commercial driver’s license or are cited for speeding in a construction zone with workers present with any kind of driver’s license, you must fight harder to protect yourself. This may include multiple trips to the courthouse, ending with a jury trial or a dismissal if you are lucky. Ross understands that your driving record can affect your livelihood and your insurance rates. He knows that even for non-commercial drivers, employers often pull your driving record when you apply for a job. Ross Torres is committed to fighting your case as hard as possible.
If you are undecided whether to represent yourself, do yourself a favor and give us a call first.
