Traffic Ticket Law
Call Us When You Need a Traffic Ticket Lawyer in San Antonio.
Traffic tickets consist of minor to major violations. They can range from simple driving violations, such as not wearing a seat belt or not fully stopping at a stop sign, to speeding, reckless driving, driving without a license, or hit and run, among other things.
These all come with varying penalties and potential jail time. If you do not take care of your ticket, you will not be able to renew your Texas driver license until the reported violation is resolved with the reporting court.
If you get a traffic ticket in Texas, you have three choices: plead guilty, plead no contest, or plead not guilty. It’s good to weigh your options and understand the ramifications of each choice before you submit your plea. Speak with a traffic ticket lawyer at The Law Offices of Cesar A.

There are Penalties for Failure to Appear
A good number of Texans who are arrested for minor traffic violations will be released on their own recognizance. For major violations, some will be eligible to post bail. In either case, the defendant is agreeing to appear in court at a later date. But what happens if you fail to appear in court as agreed?
There can be severe consequences for failure to appear. Failing to appear for a scheduled court date can result in the presiding judge issuing a warrant for your arrest. This can happen during a routine traffic stop when police run your name through a database or when a license plate scanner identifies you while driving around town.
Don’t let a traffic ticket turn into something out of control. Stay calm and contact the Law Offices of Cesar A. Montalvo to represent you. Whether you have missed your court date or not, we can generally handle the case without your presence. There is no need for you to miss work or return to the county if you are from out of town. This can be especially helpful for charges involving CDL license holders.
