Customer Question
Hello. During this summer...

Hello. During this summer I received a traffic citation in florida (sumter county) for speeding 20mph above at 90 in a 70 zone. I am a college student and went to work in NYC over the summer, and sent my envelope to the court with the following: 1. a letter with my affidavit to elect traffic school. 2. a money order for the total amount of the ticket. I had thought that this had been cleared, but just now I check to see if this was resolved online and it shows that my payment was "unacceptable" and that my drivers license is now suspended.

Lawyer's Assistant: License regulations vary from place to place, so can you tell me what state this is in?

Florida

Lawyer's Assistant: Do you need to appear in court?

I'm not sure

Good evening. In a situation like this, a motion would need to be filed, asking that the suspension be lifted and when it is, ask that the case be reset and you would need to obtain a D-6 clearance, so you can reinstate your license, as it is a traffic criminal offense, to drive on it. The easiest thing to do is going to be to retain a traffic ticket defense attorney, who can handle this for you and handle the ticket, so you do not need to appear on your own or file the paper work either and get your license reinstated, as soon as possible.

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.
