There are several ways a traffic attorney can assist you in your case. One of the advantages is that a lawyer can appear on your behalf saving you the time and trouble of appearing in court.
Lawyers are trained in the law. They know the rules of evidence, the best defenses for common violations and the best way to present your case to the judge. When the attorney represents you, the judge or hearing officer takes the case more seriously. This can help you get a better result.
Officers may present facts or evidence that is not allowed and you would not know to object. But if an attorney is representing you, that is much less likely to happen. Also, officers appear in court a lot! Although they are not formally trained, many of them learn from their experiences. Officers come off as extremely credible when testifying. So it is better to have an experienced person representing you as well.
