If you have received a traffic ticket, rest assured that Judith Samson, Attorney at Law, will do everything in her power to get the best result. With our team of expert Minneapolis traffic ticket attorneys, we know how to challenge prosecutors and get justice for our clients.
Paying the fine might be easy, but there are better options than paying the fine. Even if it is a petty misdemeanor, you still have a moving violation on your record – which then causes your insurance premiums to go up. You’re also one step closer to losing your license (if you haven’t already) depending on how many violations are on your record in the past 12- and 24 months. And lastly, by paying the fine, you missed an opportunity to negotiate with the prosecutor so that they could dismiss or amend the charge – which could have been more beneficial for you.
Having worked as a prosecutor in the past, I am privy to the fact that most traffic violations are open to negotiation – meaning, you stand a chance at convincing the State for a more favorable outcome.
Don’t automatically assume you have to pay for a ticket just because you received one.
Not handling traffic tickets correctly and promptly can have significant consequences, including higher insurance premiums, a license suspension, or even losing your commercial driver’s license (CDL) if you’re a professional driver. At Judith Samson, Attorney at Law, we are dedicated to helping our clients resolve their traffic violations effectively. Our law firm specializes in traffic violation cases, including:
- Speeding tickets

- Moving violations
- School bus stop arm violations

- Failure to pay tickets
- Failure to appear in court

Offenses that endanger people or property
In general, traffic tickets in Minneapolis are not considered to be crimes. This means you can pay for the token without going to court. In Minneapolis, police officers have the right to determine if traffic violations were committed in a way that endangered people or property. If they believe so, the officer will check the “endangerment” box on the traffic ticket, making it a misdemeanor crime. If the recipient does not go to court, they may be penalized for 90 days in jail and a $1,000 fine. Some offenses are more severe due to federal regulations.
There are many reasons someone might choose to hire a traffic lawyer.
