People always ask, “Why would I need help with a traffic ticket?” or “Would it be worth it to hire an attorney in order to defend a simple traffic ticket?” Surprisingly, hiring a traffic ticket attorney in Louisiana is often a cheaper alternative to paying the ticket. In addition, many drivers don’t realize that the act of paying a ticket is an admission of guilt, which in most cases leads to an increase in insurance rates (increasing as much as 20% for 2-3 years). This means if a driver pays $2,000 a year for insurance, paying a $400 traffic ticket could result in upwards of $1200 more in yearly insurance fees. That’s why it’s always important to call a local traffic attorney before paying that $200-500 fine. Bloom Legal LLC is based in New Orleans, but also represents residents of St. Charles Parish, a small area North of Orleans Parish including the cities of Destrehan, Hahnville, and Des Allemonds. Despite it’s abbreviated, suburban makeup, a large percentage of traffic tickets in the New Orleans Metropolitan area come from St. Charles. St. Charles Parish owns a important piece of real estate on I-10 that links Baton Rouge with New Orleans, and all traffic flowing East-West/West-East across the country (for example, from Jacksonville, Florida to California) must go through I-10. This makes St. Charles Parish an important piece of real estate for law enforcement officials; Parish officers are very present on this strip of road, and make a lot of money handing out tickets to those passing through.
