the police officer told me that I was 62mph in 45 mph zone. My car speedometer was showing 50.

To retain an attorney, they should charge you around $79. If they get the case dismissed, you will pay nothing to the court and would have only incurred the cost for representation. If they can not get the case dismissed, then you would likely have to pay a fine and court costs, which may be less then the $256, depending on your driving record. With an attorney, you have a chance of beating this or at least keeping points off your license. The last thing you want to do is just pay it, since it is an admission of guilt and you will have points.
