How much will I have to pay to get a good ticket lawyer?
If you hire us at least 72 hours before your first court appearance in Dallas Municipal Court we charge a flat fee of $40.00 for taking care of it.
This includes notifying the court of our representation, setting a hearing date, attempting to negotiate a dismissal or a deferral (followed by dismissal) with the relevant prosecutor or court.
If you’re summoned to a JP court, it includes appealing it to a County Court at Law, where your chances of a deferral and/or negotiated dismissal may be better.
If your first appearance date has already passed, or if your in a jurisdiction outside our $40.00 coverage area, we charge a little more. This fee covers notifying the court of our representation. If your ticket is in warrant, our price covers posting an attorney bond (for which your signature may be required), requesting and setting a new hearing date, and attempting to negotiate a dismissal or deferral beforehand. Obviously, if necessary, it includes attending and advocating for you at the hearing itself.
The bottom line? EVERYTHING IS NEGOTIABLE, so give us a call and tell us what you’re dealing with, and we’ll see if we can reach an agreement on price.
We’ll do what we can, within reason, to win your business.
Time is of the essence, so let’s get started right away! You can call us and pay over the phone with a major credit card or debit card, or you can schedule an appointment and pay in cash, or with a cashiers check or money order. We do not accept cash at the court house. You must pay in advance. In some circumstances we will enter into payment plans. It doesn’t hurt to ask.
