When charged with a traffic violation you may spend countless hours researching issues and preparing documents, compiling evidence, preparing for appearances and hearings taking time away from important things like work, family and leisure.

Did you receive a ticket in Machias Town Court?

It is not uncommon for an individual to attempt to defend a traffic violation on his/her self without knowledge concerning the procedure and customs of the local judicial system. However, oftentimes an individual who represents themselves risks missing deadlines, notices, and court proceedings because they are not familiar with the procedural rules and legal documents involved in any given case. Without an understanding of local courtroom rules and customs, people that choose to represent themselves, due to their lack of knowledge of these rules and customs, often unintentionally offend a judge or district attorney.
