Nope the cop showed up and they caught me in a radar trap...lol I'm not sure how he managed that I didn't got to court and honestly didn't really ask to many questions.

i've personally dealt with POINTS since the beginning... several years ago for a careless.... got that dropped... even though i was suppose to show up for court date... but forgot too... don't know how but lucky me.... had a fail to stop @ a stop sign... same thing... POINTS got it dropped as well.....

and this previous november thanksgiving... one speeding ticket when coming back from New York... pissed me off so much...... got POINTS to deal with it.... but no word as of yet what's been happening with it.... my insurance hasn't gone up yet since I got my renewal recently... so maybe it's still processing for a court date or sumthing.... but just hope it get's taken care of as well....

the way I see it.... i pay them off to pay the other guys off....it's a bitch but that's how if goes... life sucks..... it's all about ripping each other off in this society.. milking everyone of there funds.... just like gas prices and living here in toronto.... enough of my rant...

I'm bumping this old thread hoping for an updated answer.

I was charged yesterday with a rather serious offense with rather serious consequences. Everyone always says "hire a lawyer" but nobody tells you how to find a good one.

I've noted the recommendations above, but if anyone has a specific name or someone they've used I'd appreciate the info. Send by PM if you prefer.

pm kevin (boots), ask him about his lawyer.


To be honest though, you can almost certainly plead down to simple speeding on your own without a lawyer and will probably save a ton of cash. Your rates will go up because there's a suspension on your record (even if found not guilty later, welcome to ontario). This is of course assuming you got stunt driving.

btw moto_menace saw you getting popped. Sorry bro

Not sure it's wise to post much publicly, so let's say I was slightly exceeding the flow of traffic on the 407. Full story can be told over beers!

This is exactly what I'm worried about.

How do I find this 'boots'?

basically any paralegal will do that isnt xcopper or traffic tickets place. The rest lies in the information you give your paralegal and what they do with it.

In your situation.....you are going to either end up paying your paralegal a shit load to get you off or you'll be paying your insurance co. The "X" copper and all the rest work with the police and prosecuting attorneys. they are in bed together. Doesn't matter who wins they make money. That is ultimately the name of the game. what you'd want ideally is it doesn't show up on your record. it's a tough call. But I would go for a free consult to see what your options are. GL and sorry to hear you got burned.

That's what they claim, but really they just take your money and show up just as you would and take the first thing the prosecutor offers them.

So basically you pay x-copper a boat load of money for them to show up in your absence and take the exact same deal you would have gotten on your own.

They don't do anything to help you at all, they just steal your money.

Someone that really knows what they're doing is far and few between and will absolutely fight to make the charge go away or drop it to a far lesser charge by either a technicality or they know someone that does owe them a favor.

Simple as that, there are no miracles except if the cop doesn't show up that could be considered one.

As already mentioned, you should try Paul Martin. - He's a Paralegal, but is said to be very knowledgeable.

www.atrafficticketexpert.ca/

It sounds like you shouldn't mess around.

Also, filing a 11B, IF your trail date is more than 11months from when you requested a court date, would be top priority.

This is why everyone should request a trail date.

Good Luck!

Exactly;

You pay $300 bucks and then the ticket.

A good web resource is http://www.ontariohighwaytrafficact.com/

Sometimes you do need representation, apparently REDLINE is the best
