sounds like a lot of hassle
Call/email the attorney and discuss. Pay them. Wait for the results.
No going to court, etc.
My current ticket has been continued 3 times. I have not appeared once or spent any time other than the initial phone call.
They handle everything.
You’re either going to pay the ticket, fight the ticket yourself (big hassle and time waster) or pay the attorney to fight the ticket.
The benefit to the attorney is keeping your driving record clean(er) and insurance rates down.
