Jaywalking in Las Vegas

Pedestrians continue to be killed on Las Vegas roadways as careless drivers fail to slow down or stop when un-shielded men and women are crossing the street and “in their way.” In 2014 alone, The Associated Press reported that 284 people lost their lives on Nevada roads, which is higher than the previous year, but not as dramatic as the horrid high of 423 driving-related deaths in Nevada in 2006. Officials attempt to remedy this morbid problem with a heavier police presence to ticket the drivers– but many individuals also see the pedestrians as at fault, due to the fact that in many circumstances they are jaywalking or distracted (on their cell phones talking or texting, listening to music, walking while intoxicated, etc.) A jaywalking ticket can range upwards of $200 here in Las Vegas– and many officials believe that issuing tickets to both the pedestrians and the drivers may be a way to help remedy this problem faster. Whatever becomes of the situation– do be careful when driving (or walking!) on a Las Vegas roadway.

In most cases, we can have your ticket reduced to No Points, No School, and No Waiting in Line at Court. Give us a call at (702) 382-2000...

Henderson Police make multiple DUI arrests

Henderson Police make multiple DUI arrests This past month, during a two week period ending on September 7th, Henderson police arrested eight drivers on DUI Charges; as well, they issued over 80 speeding tickets, 15 citations for texting while driving, and numerous other tickets including those issued to drivers with no insurance, expired registration, and suspended or expired licenses. This influx in tickets was largely due to a recent enforcement effort targeting drunk drivers in the Las Vegas area. You may have already heard the stats, but that does not make them any less shocking; last year alone, almost 300 people were killed in motor vehicles in Nevada alone. Alcohol was a contributing factor in a large portion of those deaths, according to the Nevada Department of Public Safety, Office of Traffic Safety. In 2014, so far, almost 200 people have been killed in motor vehicle accidents. These numbers are disheartening. DUI Charges in Las Vegas are not to taken lightly. If you have been charged with such a case, we strongly suggest you consider hiring a qualified DUI Attorney to assist you with your DUI Case. Attorney Mark Coburn has the knowledge, and experience to ensure that you receive the highest possible legal representation. Call us today at (702) 382-2000 for a Free Consultation.  ...

Las Vegas Bench Warrants Explained

Las Vegas Bench Warrants Explained As a long-running and respected Law Office in Southern Nevada, we at Ticket Attorney Law Office receive many questions regarding warrants, warrant quashing, and the specifics on individual warrant-related cases. Today we’d like to share with you a break-down of one of the most common types of warrants in Las Vegas: the bench warrant. Similar to arrest warrants, a bench warrant in Las Vegas authorizes Nevada police to arrest and detain you on bail, at any time. The major differences between arrest warrants and bench warrants follow: Arrest warrants must be formally requested by police, from judges. Bench warrants, on the other hand, are initiated by the judges themselves. As well, arrest warrants begin the start of a criminal case, while bench warrants typically pop up while a criminal case is already underway (i.e. when the judge finds you in “contempt of court.” What is contempt of court? Examples follow… missing a court date (such as an arraignment, a sentencing, or a status check) forgetting or neglecting to pay a fine, attending counseling, or complete community service, and/or neglecting to follow any other court order A judge in Las Vegas may also decide to issue a Las Vegas bench warrant if you are not currently in custody but have been named in an indictment. Or, if you refuse to testify in a Nevada court, a judge may choose to order a bench warrant as well.

The Importance of Court Dates

Each and every day, people all over the country are notified of a pending court date. While most people understand what a court date is, a lot of people don’t realize the importance of these court dates. It’s sad, because there are real, and potentially serious, consequences when a court date is missed. This is why it’s important that you take your Las Vegas court date seriously.It doesn’t matter what your Las Vegas court date is regarding, you have a responsibility to be there or to have an attorney present for you. Depending on the type of case you have, there are different consequences. For example, if you are the plaintiff filing a small claims case against another party with the intent of recouping money or other damages and fail to show up for the scheduled court date, your case could be dismissed. This means that you forfeit your right to potentially get your money back. However, if you are the defendant in a small claims case and don’t show up for court, you risk the chance of the judge ruling in the plaintiff’s favor – which means you will have to abide by the judge’s ruling without being able to argue your side of the story.If you happen to miss your Las Vegas court date for a traffic ticket, there are even harder consequences you may have to face. For example, your license may be suspended and a warrant may be issued for your arrest. You could also be slapped with a variety of different fines and, depending on your record, you could even face a jail sentence!...
