I received a speeding ticket and would like to get it pulled so I don't have points on my license. Does anyone know of a low-cost attorney to pull it for me? I contacted some attorneys and was quoted $500, which seems very high. I was hoping to pay around $100.

Thank you!

You aren't going to find anyone who will be able to guarantee no points for you for $100. Won't happen.

You can get tickets pulled by paying more? Jesus this country sometimes.

How about slow the F down, and stay out of my neighborhood.

Thank you

Default speed was?

At least you can tell us how fast you were going, circumstances, such as going 65 i in a school zone while texting without a seat belt.

you will have a very hard time getting a speeding ticket reduced in fairfax county, even with a lawyer. You might get it reduced to failure to obey a highway sign, but that's still three points. You can aim for "failure to pay full time and attention" which does not carry any points, but even a $500 lawyer (yes that is the going rate) can't guarantee it.

Plead No-Lo and ask the judge to reduce the cost of the ticket. It should go down to, probably, $250- $300 but you don't get any points.

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.

I think you deserve what you got. You could have killed someone with your inconsideration for others. Your me first attitude will get you where?
