Answering Your Ticket

Most courts require that you answer your ticket within 48 hours. To do so, follow the directions that appear on the ticket itself. You will have to sign the ticket "guilty" or "not-guilty" and get it to the court. Pleading guilty will make you responsible for all fines and penalties imposed according to the original charge on the ticket. Pleading not-guilty will give you the chance to either contest the case in court yourself or hire an attorney to appear for you. Our office can also attempt to negotiate with the court on your behalf to get a better offer from the court - an offer of a lesser charge in exchange for a guilty plea. This has saved our clients over the years a trip to court, points on their license, and hundreds and hundreds of dollars in court fines and assessment fees. Failure to answer your ticket at all will result in a default judgment of guilty on your behalf and you will be responsible for all associated fines and penalties. Unpaid fines can get you in bigger trouble with license restrictions and issued warrants.
