What the hell did you do to deserve a $500 ticket? Racing? Because $500 means, your car has been impounded, and you're looking to have your license revoked. - 30 mph over the speed limit.
Please read what the OP wrote. The $500 quote was for attorneys.

OP. You can plead nolo contendere all you want but there are no guarantees it will be reduced to anything that removes points. The judge could reduce the speed down some so the points are reduced but there are no guarantees. Knowing the speed might help to give some possible advice. 56/45 is no big deal. 56/25 will be tough.

I was a police officer for over 30 years and I have no idea what you mean by "pull a ticket" No such thing I've ever heard.

The OPs ticket wasn't $500; that's the quote from the lawyers.

Thank you!
I would not bother with a lawyer for a simple speeding ticket say 39/30. You are better off making a deal by yourself and saving your money since there is a slim chance of getting out of this with no points anyway.

You guys are so full of yourselves its ridiculous.

If you have a clean record, you might get it reduced, but I don't recommend an attorney. Theres a defensive driving class you can take that will take 3 points off your record. It isn't easy to get out of tickets here like in small towns.

Not sure who this is referring to. Who is full of themselves and why?

Lawyers in this town don't even have breakfast for under $450/hr. If you found one willing to "fix" your ticket for $100, then I'd first call the VA BAR to make sure he/she is an actual attorney in good standing, and I'd make sure to read each and every letter of that contract with the attorney before signing anything. $100 bucks in legal defense in the Washington, DC area sounds like the opening paragraph of a John Grisham novel... Do the crime, pay the fine, Bandit.

Thank you

In 'Murca, you get all the "justice" you can afford. It's always been that way.

Or as my pop liked to say, "there are no millionaires on death row".
