Contesting Your Traffic Ticket

Whether you are driving to work, home, or to another location, it is important that you stay focused on the road at all times. However, we understand, the police officer who issued you your ticket may have been wrong. Martin J. Rubin will review the State’s complaint and will use his best efforts to request dismissal for faulty complaints. Martin J. Rubin will appear with you at Court. Like all criminal cases, the State has the burden to prove their case to a jury. Their burden is proof beyond a reasonable doubt. We will cross examine the State’s witness not only about the driving facts, but also about the reliability of the devices used by the police including radar and LIDAR, the zoning and the signage. The constitutional presumption is that you are innocent until proven guilty.

We will use our best efforts to keep the ticket from showing up on your driving record and to keep your insurance rates from skyrocketing. We offer our services for violations occurring throughout Texas, including in the following areas:

  • Collin County
  • Dallas County

Occupational Driver’s License Attorney

Suspended LicenseIf your license has been suspended because of surcharges, ALR/SOAH hearing rulings, driving while license invalid, conviction for DWI or drug charges call the Law Offices of Martin J. Rubin for an occupational driver’s license also called an essential need license.

The occupational license will authorize you to operate a non-commercial motor vehicle.

We have been successful for decades in assisting our clients in obtaining this provisional license that allows citizens to drive even when the State of Texas has suspended the client’s license. These petitions can now be filed in Justice of the Peace Courts, County Courts, County Criminal Courts and District Courts.

Our legal fees are reasonable and start at $500 plus court costs. Our client’s must pay the Department of Public Safety fees of $10.00 for one year or $20.00 for a two year provisional license, which is the maximum time period allowed for the license. Our client must also obtain an SR22, a certified driving record and a deep lung device, if ordered. The new license for clients who have lost their license for a class B misdemeanor DWI can obtain a provisional license without the normal restrictions except for the requirement of the installation of a deep lung device in their motor vehicle.

We use our best efforts to obtain your occupational driver’s license without specific hours and with the right to drive all over the State of Texas in connection with your:

  1. Work,
  2. School-related activities. and
  3. Performance of essential household duties.

We will file the request in the county where you live or to the court of original jurisdiction where your criminal offense occurred.

If the Court determines that you are eligible for an occupational license, then a court order will be issued. In many courts the Judge will also ask the State Prosecutor for the County to review documents so that their position can be submitted to the Judge. We usually draft the order for the Court so that the order includes the entire State for driving privileges and the right to use a log with 12 hours to drive rather than specific hours. We will give you a copy of the court order that can be used to drive for 45 days from the date the Judge signs the order. Afterwards the Department of Public Safety will send you the hard copy of the license.

Waiting Periods

An occupational license is issued once the request is processed unless one of the following situations applies:

  • The individual’s driver license was previously suspended as a result of an alcohol- or drug-related offense then there is a 90-day waiting period.
  • The individual’s driver license was in suspension as a result of an intoxication-related conviction then there is a 180-day waiting period.
  • There are at least two administrative license revocations on the individual’s driver record then a mandatory one-year waiting period applies.

We use our efforts to obtain the occupational license as swiftly as possible so that you can go back to supporting your family and taking care of your loved ones.
