What Happens If I Have Unpaid Traffic Tickets?
Unpaid traffic tickets usually result in a bench warrant from New Orleans or from Jefferson Parish. These are the types of warrants where they don’t knock down your door in the middle of the night, but what they do do is they’ll suspend your license and they’ll put a warrant out for your arrest.
So if you get pulled over with unpaid traffic tickets it’s discretionary or, in many cases, the officer will arrest you. It’s very embarrassing. I’ve represented nurses, teachers, doctors, lawyers, professionals from all sorts of walks of life that have actually been arrested because they have unpaid traffic tickets.
It’ll also skyrocket your insurance because your license will be suspend, so it’s really a major problem. One thing we do is people call me, and they’re often embarrassed they have suspended licenses and they have tickets from all over the world! I’ve seen people with tickets all over the place. One time we did it for someone in Canada.
So if you have traffic tickets from Florida, all over the state of Louisiana, you need to have a lawyer go in there and clean them up and we can help do that. We can make the calls, we can help facilitate that. We call it drivers license restoration.
