FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS (FAQ's)

 

Question:  Can I handle my ticket completely online?

Answer:  Absolutely Yes, the service is the same as if you were actually at an attorney office.  The legal community is finally embracing the notion of being paperless.

Question:  What makes 24hourticketpower.com a better solution than other law firms who handle traffic tickets?
Answer:
First, we offer value to the clients. Other companies offer services with a hook or catch. That hook usually means higher fees to do the work. Because we handle everything electronically we offer convenience and superior service than other law firms. As always, clients may come to our two office locations located downtown or in Summerlin to discuss their traffic ticket/s in more detail.

Question:  What's the deal with traffic school?  Are there times when traffic school is mandatory?

Answer:  Traffic school can be a somewhat tricky tenant when negotiating a ticket with the Las Vegas Traffic Courts.  Generally, traffic school is not mandatory unless you get into an accident or it is a repeat offense.  However, if you elect to not take traffic school, the fine amount may be larger then if you accept and complete traffic school.  In addition, there are a few cases where the court will demand traffic school as part of the plea negotiation.  However, if you inform us that you are not interested in traffic school, we will use our best efforts to ensure you don't have to go to school.

Question:  The Court Date on my ticket is tomorrow.  Can I use 24hourticketpower to handle my ticket today?

Answer:  Depending on the Court and their respective policies, we can handle same day tickets. Our Website is pre-programmed with those policies. If your ticket goes through, WE CAN HANDLE IT. If it rejects it, then send us an email; it may be too late to set the attorney session as the Court may not process before your scheduled hearing date.

Question:  My Court Date is approaching and I haven't heard any thing from you or the courts.  Should I be worried?

Answer:  Do not worry about your current Court date as that date has been reset for a hearing with our firm. Often, the time frame for final resolution of your ticket can take a few months. Feel free to log into the website and check your status periodically. If you received this letter your old court date has been moved.

Question:  Can I handle my ticket on my own?

Answer:  Yes, however you will have to deal with the Court’s directly which may likely mean a very long wait with the traffic Court tellers;  If you want to fight the ticket, it will also involve multiple court appearances.  A prudent person will hire counsel to navigate the court system and the laws. Typically, a lawyer can negotiate a better plea bargain in a criminal proceeding due to the experience and knowledge he or she possesses. This leverage equates to a better outcome then one simply can get on their own. In addition, it is convenient not to have to go to Court. If a Defendant handles their own ticket he or she can expect to attend 4 or more Court appearances, deal with congested parking at the Courthouse, and deal with long lines in the Traffic Division.

Question:  How much will it cost?

Answer:  There are two costs you must consider 1.) The attorney’s fee for the negotiation service, and 2.) the Court’s fine for the violation.  Our prices for attorney fees are flat rate attorney fees with no hidden costs.  The majority of our attorney fees are $69 per violation, unless they are more serious offenses such as DUI's and Reckless Driving.

Question:  Who is going to handle my ticket?

Answer:  A licensed Nevada Attorney skilled in criminal defense will handle your ticket. Because the representation is personal your attorney will contact you directly to discuss specifics of your case. Misdemeanor Traffic tickets are the least serious of most crimes, and thus, are handled much the same in Court. The district attorney will offer a plea bargain to your attorney and if the offer appears fair a deal is reached. Often, the deal offered to attorneys is no points, a fine, and/or traffic school. We attempt to get the best deal possible given the circumstances, but always have the clients' interest in mind. Generally, we will plead nolo contender or “no contest” to a traffic infraction allegation to avoid the hassles of an expensive and full blown bench trial.

Question:  Can I use 24hourticketpower for multiple tickets I received on different dates?

Answer:  Yes, we will handle tickets you receive today, and if you get another tomorrow we will handle that as well.  Each are treated separately. Just login into your 24 Hour Ticket Power account and add another citation. 

Question: I don’t have the fax/mail cover letter or instructions to submit documentation, can I retrieve it somewhere?

Answer:  Yes, you can also download the cover letter and instructions for remitting documentation (Driver’s License, Registration, Insurance) by visiting this page.

Question:  I don’t have a credit card, can I pay with a check?

Answer:  Yes, simply input your information online and hit “submit” and at the payment step indicate you wish to pay by check or drop off cash at our physical location.  Your ticket will remain in our system, but will not be handled until we receive payment.  Put your citation # on the check so we can track the payment.

Question: Is my credit card number safe?

Answer: Absolutely safe. We safeguard our clients’ information and use encrypted software for our clients' protection.  

Question:  I missed my court date and I now have a warrant, can you do this online?

Answer:  Yes and No.  We will handle warrants for “traffic” tickets on an individual basis.   These warrants include:  failing to show up for Court and failing to pay the fine.  We can also handle other criminal warrants, but we suggest an in person consultation with our expert criminal defense attorneys.

Question:  Is the “typical outcome” what I should expect?

Answer:  Yes.  The Courts have become fairly accustomed to negotiating tickets with lawyers given the volume of tickets issued in Clark County and therefore have typical outcomes given basic traffic citations.  The Government needs the revenue generated by traffic citations and this is a good solution for the violator and the Courts.

Question:  Are you pleading “Not guilty” to my ticket?

Answer:  No.  We are pleading “no Contest” which is similar to pleading guilty, but to lesser charges—often a non-moving violation:  a parking ticket.  If you are absolutely innocent of the charges and want to fight the ticket in Court and in person, please come into our office and discuss the merits of your charge;  Most likely, this will cost more in attorney fees than the actual fine due to the fact we are doing a lot of work on a minor misdemeanor traffic infraction.  Sometimes it is in the best interest of the client to negotiate the case down, instead of pleading not guilty.

Question:  What if I got a DUI, can 24hourticketpower.com still represent me in using the website?

Answer:  Yes. Our prices are consistent for criminal representations on Driving under the influence/DUI charges. We do strive to get the best possible result in every case. Due to the fact every case is different, our team of expert criminal defense attorneys handles each one individually. First time DUI offenses are treated differently then Second or third time DUI’s and therefore these cases require a confidential consultation which we offer free of charge.

Question:  I got in an accident and was cited, can I use your service?

Answer:  Yes, your insurance company may be aware of your accident (as you have a duty to report) anyway, but fighting the ticket may save you from getting DMV points, which are used to calculate your insurance premiums.   We can usually reduce your overall points and fines by negotiation and is therefore worth it for us to handle these tickets too.

Question:  I was cited for no insurance and I had valid insurance on the date I was cited, is your service right for me?

Answer:  The issue here is one of proof. Naturally, if you had valid insurance, but lacked the proof, you still are guilty of not having proof of insurance in your vehicle. Normally, a court appearance with proof of insurance will result in a dismissal of the citation. We will handle these cases if you do not want the inconvenience of going to Court and the associated hassles for a nominal fee.

Question:  Where do I need to go to give 24 Hour Ticket Power my ticket?

Answer:  Physically nowhere, just online. Simply fill out the online application and we take care of the rest. We will investigate your citation in the appropriate Southern Nevada Court/Jurisdiction and set a hearing date for an attorney court session.
