Hello. I'll be happy to assist you.

So, you haven't actually entered a guilty plea yet, correct?

correct
Lawyer: Chris T., JD, Attorney replied 2 years ago

Then you have nothing to withdraw. You still have the right to go to trial with a jury, where you can present your argument. Your argument is more of a jury nullification argument than it is an actual legal defense. In other words, you aren't arguing that you weren't speeding or that you had some legal defense. You are more arguing that you were speeding, but there is some reason the jury should still find you not guilty.

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
