We Save You Money In Future Car Insurance Costs By Getting Your Speeding Ticket Reduced Or Dismissed
If you plead guilty or nolo contendere to a speeding ticket, it can cause a dramatic rise in your car insurance rates. If you plead guilty or nolo contendere to your speeding ticket, the speeding ticket will go on your Georgia Motor Vehicle Report (MVR). Once the speeding ticket reports to your MVR, your car insurance company will see the ticket and correspondingly raise your car insurance rates for anywhere from three to seven years! If you plead guilty or nolo contendere to your speeding ticket, it can cost you hundreds or even thousands of dollars in future car insurance costs.
Atlanta Speeding Ticket Attorney Sean Goldstein will try to save you money in the long run by getting your speeding citation either reduced or dismissed. If we can get your speeding ticket reduced or dismissed, the violation will not be reported to your driving record. Since the speeding ticket is not reported to your driving record, the car insurance company never finds out about it and your car insurance rates do not increase. Often, the fee to hire a speeding ticket lawyer is less than the future car insurance costs if you are found guilty of speeding or plead nolo contendere to speeding.
