Traffic Ticket Attorney/Lawyer

Any one know a good attorney or lawyer for traffic tickets in MA? To be specific speeding tickets? Sort of urgent so it would be amazing if I could get some feedback ASAP! Thanks guys!

How bad is the infraction / big is the fine to cover the costs of hiring an attorney?

It is usually not the fine but the insurance hike associated with the infarction.

that right man. I just got one like a month ago and I got an exact same ticket! But this time the cop was being an a*s. so got me for a tint and no front plates! and i was in traveling with traffic at the same speed! and there was at least 5-6 cars passing him at the same time, same speed. And he pulls out and pulls me over out of all of them. He did not even have his radar on or anything. So there was no way off seeing him till passing. And I just feel like he is picking on the m3. but then again, what the hell. But thanks, I'll contact him ASAP.

Sorry about being singled out of the pack. It happened to me once as well in my previous BMW. Is the "no plates" part a fix-it fine, or is it irreversible?

I got a ticket in the ferrari for no plates, just gave me a ticket ( and had the nerve to say " is this car stolen... " )

then I take the M in for inspection and would not pass me because no front plate

Wow, that's really rude. I would have told him, "You tell me, you're the police officer." How much was the ticket? (I'm assuming you were only missing the front plate?)

Argh. Good point. I totally forgot about this. I need to tape them on or something for the inspection.

Or you can use something like this:



The mount screws into your tow hook. Takes about 10 secs to put on and take off.

guys, another solutions is just getting double sided tape (not the regular one but heavy duty one) and taping it on to the bumber. instead of drilling holes. So when you need it on, you can have it on. if not, you can just remove it and there will be no permanent damage to the bumper i.e. holes. haha. Thats what we do in singapore. So let me know if you have any questions.

If you're still looking for someone, let me know. I have a good lawyer who's gotten me out of a speeding ticket (75 in a 40).
