When Out-of-State Traffic Tickets Crash Your Holiday Plans

The holidays are a time for gathering with friends and family members, both in and out of your hometown. But what happens when the stress of heavy traffic and hectic schedules come to a head, and you find yourself with a citation in a completely different state than your own?

Luckily, you do have options beyond the frustrating push and pull of commuting back to the state in which you received the ticket and hoping for a quick and easy resolution to avoid making the trip yet again. Thanks to attorneys like Brett Wentz of Wentz Law Firm, traffic tickets can easily be managed from a distance and at a fair cost to you.

Phone a friend

When looking for a lawyer that can handle your ticket locally, it’s important to rely on recommendations of area experts and other trusted resources. Ask your friends if they know of anyone up to the task, but also utilize handy websites such as Super Lawyers. This particular site rates lawyers in multiple regions, taking some of the strain off of finding one that will suit your needs.

Keep an open line of communication

After the holiday haze clears a bit, it can be difficult to dive back into a normal schedule. It’s even more of a hassle when you have that traffic ticket looming over you as well. But when you work with a capable attorney, the most important thing to remember is to keep an open conversation and be willing to honestly answer any inquiries related to the incident. As long as you are readily available and forthcoming, an attorney will be able to help you solve the problems as they come and in a timely manner.

Mark your calendar

Just because you won’t be the one to personally handle the ticket, doesn’t mean you shouldn’t stay up-to-date on everything related to the case. Keep track of important dates so you know when you should hear from your lawyer next, and create a list of anything you need to provide or take care of on your end. If you stay organized, your lawyer will be able to do his or her job that much easier, which means the ticket will be a thing of the past in no time.

While no one wants to get a traffic ticket on top of holiday plans, it’s nice to know that lawyers like those at Wentz Law Firm can guide you through the process for a seamless resolution. If you or a loved one has received a traffic ticket in New Hanover or Pender counties, contact Wentz Law Firm for assistance!
