    Frequently Asked Questions

    Can’t anyone defend me in traffic court?🎫

    No! As of May 1st, 2008 only a licensed paralegal or lawyer may represent you in court. Before you give any paralegal your case and money make sure he/she is licensed.

    Are here any guarantees?🎫

    No! Paralegals, like lawyers, are regulated by the Law Society of Ontario. As a result, guarantees are prohibited. A Paralegal that offers a “Guarantee” or “We Win or it’s FREE”, is acting outside the “Paralegal’s Rules of Conduct” as set out by the Law Society and should be reported. You would be extremely wise not to hire a Paralegal to defend who is breaking this rule. There have been many cases before the Law Society Tribunal ruling against such a practice. A person offering a Guarantee may be fraudulently offering services and may actually not be a licenced Paralegal.

    How do I know if a charge has any demerit points?🎫

    Demerit points are not listed on a ticket. Call us to find out if your ticket has demerit points.

    How do I know if a charge carries a potential suspension?🎫

    There are many charges, if you are found guilty, will result in a suspension your driver’s licence for 3, 7, 30 or 180 days.

    Do Novice Licence holders risk higher penalties and/or licence suspensions?🎫

    Depending on the particular charge, tickets issued to a NOVICE DRIVER (G1/G2) may result in a suspension. Suspensions may range from 30 days to 6 months or more. Call Fight Traffic Tickets to determine if you risk a licence suspension.

    Does it make a difference to hire a former police officer to defend you in court?🎫

    No! What matters most is a Paralegal’s legal training and trial experience. Licenced Paralegals are trained and, following extensive Law Society examinations, are licenced to provide legal services in all Ontario Provincial Offences Courts. In fact, the majority of representatives in Provincial Offences Courts are Paralegals – not lawyers and not former police officers. Most police officers have never even been in a trial. In fact, police officer’s have hired Fight Traffic Tickets to represent them in Court!

    How long does the whole court process take?🎫

    Depending on the jurisdiction; fighting a traffic ticket may take anywhere from 10 to 11 months or more.

    Should you request an early resolution to fight your ticket?🎫

    DON’T DO IT! In most cases, if you have been charged with a moving violation, a meeting with the prosecutor guarantees a conviction. At these meetings you have no chance to win because you are pleading guilty and may, in some cases, receive a suspension of your licence. The prosecutor does not have to prove the case against you and the officer doesn’t show up. By attending an Early Resolution meeting you are giving up the possibility to totally win.
