Why You Should Always Call a MInnesota Traffic Ticket Attorney For Your Ticket
As an experienced Minnesota Traffic Ticket Attorney, I get loads and loads of questions about how much does a lawyer cost --- and is it worth it? No doubt, these are legitimate questions. And with just a few quick facts, you can get the right answers from almost any attorney that handles traffic tickets.
Questions to Ask a Lawyer
How old is the ticket? What's it for? What county and/or city is it in? These are likely to be the questions you will be asked by the Minnesota Criminal Defense Attorney you contact, because these questions basically allow for a calculation of the amount of work that's involved.
But when you are asking the questions of the attorney, should price be one of the first questions you ask? Hardly, in fact, it should be the last. Here's why.
To ask a question about price, you are assuming that traffic attorneys are like any other commodity. You are wise to shop around for the lowest price - true; because regardless of what you pay for it, it is pretty much going to look, taste and quench your thirst exactly the same.
However, Minnesota Traffic Lawyers are not just any product. They come in all shapes and sizes (literally and figuratively).
What I mean by that, is some traffic lawyers are small one man/woman operations, and are usually cheaper/less expensive because they have less overhead.
Conversely, some firms are not one man/woman operations and appear to charge more. Often, this goes more toward keeping them in their fancy offices ... profiting off of your misfortune.
Granted, it's important that you not be penny wise and pound foolish ... and you shouldn't just hire a layer to save $10-$20 if doing so could be the difference between hundreds or thousands of dollars in higher court costs or higher insurance increases. But, you only need to pay for what you need.
As a former prosecutor, who has worked thousands of traffic tickets, I can give you a fair assessment of you case ... and I will only charge you for the work I do. You will not be paying for my ego.
