HOW DO I CHALLENGE MY TRAFFIC VIOLATION?
Many residents of Mississippi and Tennessee wrongly believe that it is fruitless to challenge a traffic violation. However, given the negative impact an infraction can have on your insurance and driving record, it is worth considering, “Should I challenge my traffic violation?”

- Speeding tickets
- Tail-light out
- Running a stop sign
- Driving without insurance
- Driving on a suspended license
- DUI/DWI and other intoxicated driving charges
- Reckless driving
We also defend commercial truck drivers charged with speeding tickets and other traffic violations.

How do I challenge my traffic violation?
- When you receive your ticket, make note of all deadlines and addresses for interacting with the court. Failure to comply with deadlines will make challenging your ticket impossible.
- If you plead “not guilty” to a ticket, you’ll receive a trial date. At the trial, your lawyer can argue the law that was applied when the ticket was issued, question the police officer who issued the ticket, present evidence to aid your case and call witnesses.
- Some types of tickets, such as a faulty tail-light or driving without your registration, can be resolved in your favor by showing that the problem has been fixed.
