How much should I expect to pay? by Ernest Caffingford - Mon, 20 Mar 2017 05:24:11 EST ID:w9qlNc4Q No.45788 Ignore Report Quick Reply

I got caught going way too fast on a rural route. I was going 80 in a 60 and got pulled by an undercover car.

I've decided it's worth it to get a lawyer to try and plead my way into traffic school. I'm actually feeling pretty remorseful about it, I'm just depressed and driving through rural areas is bleaker than fuck. I have no other defense.

I'm in VA, does anyone know how much I can expect to pay for a traffic lawyer?

Traffic school isn't rehab. The court will in all likelihood tell you if your offence can be dismissed by attending a defensive driving course. Or you could just ask. Save the lawyer for when they want to take your license away.

80 in a 60 this is like the most normal thing you could do, if you had been relaxed and polite you maybe couldve gotten of with a warning. good thing you weren't caught with marijuana. you could always plead not guilty, see if the cop shows up to court, etc.

Don't shell out for a lawyer over something so trivial. You know you were speeding, plead guilty because that's what you and the cop know is the truth, not-guilty means you're contesting whether it actually happened. You're not going to win with your word against a cop, and they're more likely to go with a higher penalty for you wasting their time. Plead guilty, it's the truth, and the penalty's always lower than if you contest it and lose which you will.

I'd be surprised if you pay more than 200-300 when it's all settled, but a lawyer will cost you a bundle. They aren't gonna take your license or anything over a single speeding ticket, you gotta relax
