Should I Hire a Sacramento Traffic Ticket Attorney?

sacramento ticket attorney

Many California drivers automatically assume they will need to hire a Sacramento traffic ticket attorney to help them get their ticket dismissed.

This is a pervasive myth that ends up costing people a lot of money they didn’t need to spend.

The truth is, there is very little a traffic ticket attorney can do for you that you cannot do for yourself. The bigger truth is, you don’t even need to go to court, much less hire a traffic attorney, to get your ticket dismissed.

Why You Shouldn’t Hire a Sacramento Traffic Ticket Attorney

Think about the last time you got a traffic ticket. What was the thing you hoped for most? You probably spent a lot of time hoping the ticketing police officer wouldn’t show up for your court date, right?

If the officer doesn’t show up, the judge will most likely dismiss your citation and you can go on with your day.

If the officer does show up, however, then you have to face them and the judge and do your best to explain why your ticket should be dismissed.

When you hire a traffic ticket lawyer to represent you, they will do the exact same thing you would do. They will go to court and hope the ticketing police officer doesn’t show up. If the ticketing officer does show up, they will probably just ask the judge to give you traffic school to keep the ticket off your license.

You will still have to pay fines and penalty fees and worse, now you have to go to traffic school!

Why Use Ticket Bust to Get Your Traffic Ticket Dismissed?

Ticket Bust is not a law firm. You won’t pay hundreds of dollars per hour in hopes of getting your traffic ticket dismissed.

Instead, all you have to do is set up your online account, send us a picture of your citation, tell us in just a few words what happened and wait for our email response. It really is that simple!

When you get our email response, then you will go back to your online account and download your defense documents and follow our instructions for how to prepare them and send them to the courthouse.

That is all you have to do. It will take about 30 to 90 days for the traffic court to return their response. You don’t have to leave your house. You never have to make a single phone call or send an email. And best of all you will never have to stand up in front of a judge to try to defend yourself face to face.

We help you do all that through Trial By Written Declaration, which is the state of California’s preferred method for resolving traffic ticket issues.

Wait – What Is Trial By Written Declaration?

Right now, if you take a look at your traffic ticket and then turn it over onto the reverse side, you will see a bunch of small print text. If you look closely, you will notice a section titled “Trial By Written Declaration.”

While this sounds like a fancy system, what it really means is “send your request to get your ticket dismissed to the court by snail mail.”

Could it really be that easy? The simple answer is “yes.”

However, there is still a step that requires some thinking and strategizing. In your written request to get your ticket dismissed, you have to tell the judge why your citation should be dismissed.

This is where Ticket Bust comes in. Our expert team has helped thousands of drivers like you get their tickets successfully dismissed by crafting compelling defense documents. A defense document is an argument that tells the judge why they should dismiss your traffic ticket.

When your defense documents are organized and well-written, all you have to do is put everything in an envelope with your bail money and send it in to the courthouse.

The Trial By Written Declaration process is a step by step process. We create your defense documents and walk you through the process to apply to the judge for ticket dismissal.

Why Is Trial By Written Declaration the Preferred Ticket Dismissal Method?

The main reason why California traffic court judges prefer the Trial By Written Declaration method is because their dockets are always over-full with traffic law cases.

Some of these cases may be complex and the last thing they have time or interest in is sitting there for hours listening to traffic ticket cases.

Every single case comes with volumes of paperwork that takes the judge and their staff hours to complete. So when you choose to use Trial By Written Declaration, this saves the judge and their assistants hours of work. It also saves the state of California money.

When you read the fine print on the back of your traffic citation, follow the instructions to the letter, submit a compelling set of defense documents along with all the right paperwork up front, dismissing your ticket becomes as easy as sending a quick snail mail letter back to you.

Most importantly, it saves you making the error of hiring a Sacramento traffic ticket attorney in hopes they can work some miracle to get your ticket dismissed that you couldn’t do on your own behalf.

With Trial By Written Declaration, you use the state of California’s own legal process to stay out of the courtroom and get on with your life.
