Just because you think your charges are minor, it doesn't mean you shouldn't fight them. A simple speeding ticket can put points on your license, increase your chances of having a license suspension and significantly raise your insurance rates. In addition, if you have seven points or more on your driver's license, you will be forced to pay driver responsibility fees to Michigan's Secretary of State. These payments can be hundreds of dollars per year and may last for two or more years.
Don't just send in your payment on a ticket and receive the points without consulting with an attorney first. Especially first time offenders who wish to keep their driving record clean. Attorney Dennis J. Rickert will assist you in keeping points off of your driving record. The fee you will pay an attorney to represent you will be substantially less than what you will pay in the long run to the courts and your insurance company.
