Customer Question
I just got a...

I just got a ticket for parking in a handicapped but i was never actually parked. I pulled in so my friend could hand me the key, and then put my car in reverse and waited until the line of cars behind me passed. It happened that an officer was in that line and he gave me a ticket for this which i really don't think was fair.

Lawyer's Assistant: Because traffic laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?

Texas

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

Yes

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

No i think thats it..

Do you think it’s feasible for me to contest this ticket?
Traffic Lawyer: Phillips Esq., Attorney-at-law replied 5 months ago

Thank you for the information:

Do you think it’s feasible for me to contest this ticket?

Response: Yes, it is since you did not actually park there and your car was in reverse when the ticket was given.

Goodluck with your case,

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.
