Do I Have to Hire an Attorney to Contest Parking Tickets?

It may appear like hiring a professional is a smart method to ensure that your ticket is canceled, but it is unnecessary. Contesting is a straightforward procedure, especially if you utilize our app. Still, if you're thinking about employing someone, be sure to follow these guidelines:

  1. Look for attorneys who have handled parking infractions cases before. Someone who excels in immigration or estate planning will be of little use.
  2. Don't just hire the first individual you come across. There are numerous con artists out there, and you may easily be taken advantage of. Do some research on the lawyers you're considering, verify their credentials, and compare prices.
  3. Make a cost estimate. It's possible that hiring a lawyer may cost you more than paying the fine.

Reasons to Contest a Parking Ticket

When you can establish there was no parking infraction, contesting is a no-brainer. You can also challenge a ticket that is illegible or has erroneous or missing information. The officer may have written down the incorrect license plate number, automobile make/model, or infraction date/time/location. Other grounds to contest a parking ticket include:

  • The parking sign is missing, erroneous, or not visible. Sign visibility does not always justify a parking offense
  • If your automobile was stolen, or you were not the owner of the vehicle at the time the ticket was issued. You'll have to back it up with paperwork
  • You were overcharged or given the wrong ticket for a parking offense
  • If the parking meter breaks down
  • The parking enforcement officer's name is not printed or signed legibly
  • If your proof shows that the equipment infringement was fixed within 24 hours of its discovery
