Gwinn Law Firm, the Athens, Ohio legal practice of licensed attorney Susan Gwinn, is offering tips on navigating the challenges of an out of state traffic citation.
Athens, OH (PRWEB) January 01, 2013
After representing thousands of clients in a variety of legal matters, Attorney Susan Gwinn of the Gwinn Law Firm is publishing tips to drivers who have received out-of-Ohio traffic violations. "First off," says Gwinn, "it is absolutely necessary that you receive expert legal advice. Negotiating citations across statelines can seem almost impossible. The complex and frustrating process of paying by mail or making an expensive trip to appear in a local court sounds like a nightmare for most drivers" add Gwinn. "We ensure the protection of our client's rights."
"It's important to realize that out of state tickets can still affect licenses in an individual's home state, and leaving them unaddressed can result in a suspension or other harsh penalties. Out of state citations can either be addressed in court, or the defendant can waive their right to appear and pay by mail. Either way, the process is complicated and leaves little room for error," says Gwinn. "We specialize in representing out of state clients who can't appear in person themselves."
Gwinn adds "When you can't get to court, we will get there for you." Rather than waiving their rights, defendants can instead rely on the expert legal counsel and representation of this experienced firm through every step of their individual case. Since the details of each citation are different, the practice consults each client one on one and builds a case that works for each plaintiff on their own terms.
When drivers from other states run into legal problems in Athens and the surrounding region, it's important to have an experienced local professional working towards their goals. The Gwinn Law Firm considers it an honor to stand up for individuals who might not have the time or money to stand in court themselves, and their years of experience provide representation clients can trust, no matter where they live.
