I got a ticket Saturday for 73 in a 50. My son says don't pay it, contact a lawyer. So my questions are why do I need a lawyer? What do I get if I hire a lawyer? I emailed a local attorney and they want a $100 consult fee, plus costs to represent me in court, plus the cost of the ticket! Do I really need to spend three times the cost of the ticket? I know there are ticket attorneys out there that work with truck drivers all the time, and I don't think they charge anywhere near what the lawyer I contacted charges.
