BloomLegalTV: Traffic Tickets
Posted on Mar 12, 2013 in Bloom Legal TV
Hi. My name’s Seth Bloom. Today, we’re going to talk about traffic ticket defense. Most people don’t realize that they can hire a lawyer for a traffic ticket. The truth is, you’ll probably get better results than trying to fight it yourself.
Why would you do this? Most traffic tickets are only a few hundred dollars. What are the other ramifications of traffic tickets? First of all, you’re going to get points on your license. Eventually if you accumulate too many points, your license could be suspended, and insurance premiums could even be raised.
A lot people call Bloom Legal and they say, “I can’t afford a lawyer”. People think they’re going to need thousands of dollars in order to hire an attorney for a traffic ticket. In actuality, most of the time my fee for a traffic ticket ends up being less than the fine. In many cases in Orleans and Jefferson parish, tickets are often written for multiple violations. They write tickets from $300-800, and I’ve seen even higher. In these situations, Bloom legal can often drop the charge down to a non-moving violation, which won’t add points to your license and will therefore save your insurance from increasing.
One of the great advantages when hiring Bloom Legal is that clients usually don’t even have to be present in court. We set your court date and get the traffic ticket either dismissed, or dropped to a non moving violation. Of course we can’t make any guarantees, but in 9 years of practicing law, this happens over 90% of the time.
Another service we provide is for people that accumulate several traffic tickets. Bloom Legal represented hundreds of clients all over the state that have gotten their licenses suspended because of either a.) too many traffic tickets or, b.) they had unpaid traffic tickets. This is a serious situation. Many people don’t realize that if you get pulled over with a suspended driver’s licenses and/or have traffic court warrants out, you could be arrested. It’s pretty embarrassing when a professional gets arrested in the middle of the day and thrown into the slammer for having traffic ticket warrants. Believe me, I get those calls. We’re used to having clients with multiple traffic tickets across different parishes and states; Bloom Legal gets their licenses repaired so they can get back on the road driving legally. We are set up for this.

Bloom will get your licenses repaired and back in working order so that you can drive safely and legally on the road.
