Will I get points on my record?
Our firm guarantees that if points are assessed against your driver's record for any non-criminal offense, we will refund our attorney's fees in full. Please call to ask for details.
How long does the entire process take?
On average, the process takes anywhere from 4-6 months from beginning to end.
Will my license be suspended while you fight my ticket?
No. Once we file the appropriate paperwork, the court will not suspend your license. At the end of the case you are usually given 30 days to pay whatever court costs may be assessed, if any. If you fail to pay those costs timely, you may have to pay late fees to the clerk of court.
How will I know what's going on with my case?
At any time, you can call our office to inquire about the status of your case, but we will keep you informed by sending you updates in the mail. You can also click on the "status of your case" tab on our website.
Does it matter where I received my ticket?
Yes, our office only handles tickets received in Florida. If you received a ticket outside South Florida, we can help you as well. If your ticket was outside Florida, we may still be able to refer you to an attorney who has met the standards demanded by Unger & Kowitt who you may want to hire.
Do I have to appear in court?
For normal traffic tickets, no, but if you have a traffic criminal matter, you should be prepared to come to court because you may have to appear before the judge. Not all judges insist that the defendant be present if the appropriate paperwork is signed properly, but some do, so you should be prepared.
Do I have to come to your office?
No. Many people do not have the time (or live out of town) to come to our office and sign up in person (even though it only takes a few minutes), and hire us online. We can arrange to have everything sent to you any way you want: email, fax, US Mail.
How much time do I have to decide what to do?
Generally when you receive a ticket for a traffic infraction, you are given thirty (30) days to decide what to do with your ticket. Hurry up, if you wait longer than 30 days, your license could get suspended causing you an additional expense.
