Default Maybe...

Paul Kubosh. (713) 222-0990

My co-worker swore on this guy... 'said he got him out of three tickets. I was skeptical, but hired him for $75.00. The ticket I received was for speeding in a construction zone with workers present. There were no workers present, I even took pictures. As for speeding, yes, I was, but was not going to admit to it.

Fast forward to my trial... The Kubosh attorney argued on my behalf that the second officer who actually had the radar gun was not present, therefore, the guy who wrote the ticket went on hearsay. The Judge agreed. The City of Houston dismissed my ticket based on 'Lack of Evidence', thanks to the work of the attorney representing Kubosh. Like my co-worker, he got me off completely. Caveat Emptor.

HTBU,

Did you have to go to the court with the lawyer ? Or, the lawyer did it all and you were not even there ?

Default Yes...

On the arraignment, you don't have to be present. But you must be present on your court date if I'm not mistaken. Your first date, the one noted on the ticket, is only for arraignment, or if you want to plead guilty... if you have an attorney, you will not plead guilty of course.

Not saying one is better than the other, but David Sprecher practically invented that business in Houston, and has an outstanding reputation.

I called Paul Kubosh and David Sprecher...David Sprecher is very expensive! His office quoted me $140 more than Kubosh's!

Another option is to show up to your arraignment and plead "not guilty". Request a trial by jury. Your court date will likely not be for four months. About six days before your court date, go downtown and request for your trial date to be moved. This will lessen the chance of the police officer showing up to your trial. Even if he does show up on your new date, the traffic court generally can only go through 2 trials a day. If you stick it out, it is likely your chances of your case being chosen will be either one in five or one in four as their will be 8 to 10 other people doing the same thing. Furthermore, if you only have a minor charge, your chances of your case being thrown out are even greater as the judge will have to choose between you and quite likely cases with multiple charges, DUI etc.

What I am telling you to do is more or less what a traffic attorney will do for you anyways. Traffic court is nothing more than a numbers game. You can pretty easily do it yourself.
