Your Santa Fe Traffic Ticket: Solved
By: James Brandon Gaines, Esq. Texas Attorney - January 2nd, 2020
If you are set to appear, or have already missed your appearance at the Santa Fe Municipal Court or Galveston County Justice of the Peace in Texas, be sure to contact us first to explore your options.
Never enter a plea of guilty or just pay your Santa Fe traffic ticket without speaking to an attorney first. When you just pay the court for your ticket, or enter a plea for a payment plan, the ticket will go on your record. This can adversely affect your auto insurance, your driving record, and possibly lead to suspension of your license.
Why You Need a Ticket Lawyer:
We successfully get 95% of our client's tickets dismissed. You absolutely want to keep your record clear in Texas, because an accumulation of "points" - which are tabulated for every ticket that goes on your record - can lead to license suspension, drivers license impairments, and can impact your insurance rates.
Texas law recently changed to make the consequences of points to be much more destructive to your driving history and insurance premiums. It is vital that you do everything possible to avoid a ticket going on your record, and our Santa Fe ticket lawyers can help.
We work to keep your driving record clear, get your warrants lifted if necessary, prevent the suspension of your license, or even get the OMNI holds on your Texas license lifted so that you can renew your license.

Peace of Mind
You will usually never need to appear in court, or worry that your Santa Fe ticket is being handled properly. We handle all of your court appearances, including the first date which is on your ticket, so that you can stay home with peace of mind. We negotiate your ticket with the prosecutor on your behalf to get the best outcome possible. Simple!
CDL Holders with a Santa Fe Ticket
If you have a commercial drivers license in Texas, you know how vital it is to keep points off of your record. Points can directly sabotage your employment, and threaten your livelihood. We understand how important it is to keep points off of your record, and do everything possible to seek an outcome which dismisses or minimizes points.
As a CDL holder in Texas, you know that Santa Fe courts can't offer deferred or defensive driving like they can for regular license holders. Instead, we seek to avoid points by getting you on a pretrial diversion program, changing the violation to a non-moving violation, or even lowering the speed so that no points get on your record. No attorney can guarantee any outcome, but we will work tirelessly to safeguard your livelihood.
