What is the cost of a Traffic Attorney?
Usually, Lawyers are expensive. A good lawyer can charge anywhere from $400-$800 per hour!
Attorney fees are usually structured per hour when the client's questions and issues are more open-ended. Most traffic tickets, however, are a more well understood and routine problem, and a lot of attorneys will charge a 'flat-fee' rather than charging 'per hour'.
What's the difference between a 'flat-fee' and charging 'per hour'?
With a 'flat-fee', the attorney lays out the total cost at the start, usually with some stipulations. For example, in a 'flat-fee' arrangement for a traffic ticket, an attorney may say that the flat fee includes all representation and advice all the way up to and including trial, but does not include any appeal.
What are some important considerations when choosing a Traffic Ticket attorney?
Attorneys know about the law, but that doesn't mean they know all about the law in all practice areas. Like all fields of law, Traffic Law is a specialized area. It is very important you chose an attorney with lots of knowledge and experience in fighting Traffic Tickets.
Experience is critically important. Not just in familiarity with the relevant Traffic Laws, but in familiarity with the court procedures (both formal and informal!) in that specific county. Many motorists have had their traffic charge reduced because the attorney was able to make a plea bargain with the Officer, before the case went to trial.
At Fixed, we make sure to vet every attorney to make sure they have lots of experience and a terrific track record of success.
How is Fixed able to negotiate such low rates with Attorneys?
It basically comes down to two things: volume and software that helps process that volume effectively.
Volume is important for an attorney: if you have to go to court for 1 ticket, you don't make much money, but if you can handle the tickets of 10 clients in the same court visit, then it becomes more lucrative for you. Because of our volume of users, we're able to generate a large pool of potential clients for an Attorney and negotiate great rates for that for our users.
Additionally, we offer the attorney proprietary software that makes processing all the paperwork and administration of those users easier and less time consuming. It's a win-win for both the user and the attorney.
