The first step in getting started is deciding what you want to do.  Have you talked to your insurance carrier to see what this ticket will do to your rates, if you get convicted?  Did you simply not commit the infraction and want to make sure it stays off your record?  Whatever your reason for deciding to fight the ticket, getting started is easy!

Download the Client Information and Contract. It has instructions on how to send in your ticket and how to hire me.  This file is available in two formats: MsWord and .PDF, choose whichever is easier for you.

           MsWord Format: here

          .PDF Format: here 

          To view a .pdf file, you will need Adobe Reader, which is available for free   here: http://get.adobe.com/reader/

Read through my client contract, sign it, and mail it or email it back to me.  You can email the forms to: dontpaytheticket@gmail.com

I cannot get started without a signed contract.  Make a copy of your ticket, mail the original to the court.  After that, you're done!  You will receive a confirmation letter from me within a week indicating that I have received your information.  It is your responsibility to contact me to ensure that I have received everything from you.

Once we have had our hearing with the Judge, I will contact you and let you know what happened.  If you want to be in court with me, great - I like people seeing what happens in court because it takes the mystery out of the system.  You are not required to be in Court on most tickets.  If we will need testimony from you in order to fight the ticket, you and I will have discussed that far in advance.

If I win in court, meaning that I got your ticket dismissed, reduced or deferred, then you will need to pay my fee ($199) right after our hearing.  If I lose in court, you owe me nothing.  You will, however, need to contact the court right away to make arrangements to pay the ticket.
