I recently recieved a traffic citation and of course I was inundated with mail from lawyers. One lawyer, David Clarkson, struck me as odd. His letter, which was later confirmed by his secretary, stated that they would charge the amount of the fine for their legal services - nothing more, nothing less; AND they would go to court for me, to have it either dismissed or placed in deferred adjudication.

I called and prodded for a contract to garauntee to this, and to garauntee no hidden/extra charges. I had no luck.

In any event, has anyone else had any dealings with him or someone like him?

just curious

Considering it could be resolved in a quick five-minute phone call to the court, this may not be as great of a deal as it appears. Lawyers who specialize in traffic citations usually have a well-developed "relationship" with the local legal system; and unless the charges are excessive I would defer adjudication and take a defensive driving course if allowed. The processing and course can be all done online and for much cheaper than the ticket in many cases...
