Ohio Traffic Court Lawyers


Major cities such as Cincinnati, Cleveland, Toledo, Akron, and Dayton line the perimeter of Ohio, with the major metropolis of Columbus, Ohio directly in the middle. Shipping from the Great Lakes makes Ohio a major east-west connector and a major over the road shipping hub. Interstates 90, 80, 70 and 76 traverse Ohio east and west, while I-71, I-75 and I-77 traverse Ohio north-south.

Suffice to say, this keeps the Ohio State Police as well as County, city, and local police agencies busy enforcing Ohio speed limits, rules of the road, and other traffic violations and misdemeanors such as OUI, driving under suspension, and the like.

Why fight a Hamilton County, Ohio Speeding Ticket

Speeding ticket and moving violation convictions cause points to accrue to your Ohio driving history. This causes 2 things to happen: 1) an insurance increase, and 2) license and / or Ohio driving privilege suspension.

The Ohio Bureau of Motor vehicle points and the insurance company points, while interrelated, are not the same. Each insurance company has their own proprietary algorithm as to how they accrue merit system violations for insurance premium increases. Contrast, the Ohio BMV has a set point system for all drivers. No matter whom you are if you accrue too many points to your Ohio driving record the Ohio BMV suspends your driver’s license or Ohio driving privileges.


Ohio’s Twelve Point Suspension rule

Under Ohio Revised Code Sections §§4510.037 - 4510.038, the driver’s license or privileges of any motorist that accumulates 13 or more points within any two year period will be suspended for a period of 6 months. Further, your Ohio driving privileges are not automatically reinstated but can only be reinstated after you complete a remedial driving instruction course given by an accredited remedial school.

What our Clermont County, Ohio traffic court lawyers can do for you

Our Ohio traffic court attorneys save you both time and money. Our lawyers deal with you by phone, e-mail and fax so that you never have to lose time from work to make a trip to our office, and get your court appearance waived so you do not have to lose a day from work to go to court. We are knowledgeable in the procedures of both the Mayor’s Court as well as the County Municipal Courts. Our Hamilton County traffic court lawyers and attorneys will see to it that we negotiate a plea that prevents a license suspension and insurance increase, or take the case to trial.

Another great service that a motorists obtains when they retain our office is not just that our office goes to court for you, but that we do not miss the court date. There are serious consequences when a pro se traffic court defendant misses a court date. There is a warrant issued for the motorists arrest. This warrant, called a CAPIAS, has a bond amount required. Once arrested the bond must be posted to secure your release from jail. In addition your license is suspended as well as a renewal of a license or registration is blocked.


If you missed a court appearance you should immediately call our law office. Often times we can get your failure to appear expunged, the warrant recalled, and your driving privileges restored without you being arrested, taken into custody, and processed.

Ohio Judiciary and Traffic Court System


The State of Ohio has a court system for Ohio speeding ticket, DUI / OVI, and moving violations unlike all other states except Louisiana. Ohio employs a system of “Mayor’s Courts” that are not a part of the judicial branch of Ohio government and are not courts of record. A Mayor’s Court is just that – a court where the Mayor of the town is the judge and not an appointed or elected member of the judiciary. However, the law allows for the Mayor to appoint a magistrate in his place, and often it is not the actual Mayor of the town or village that is hearing the case but and appointed magistrate.

Most traffic ticket cases are heard in a local City, Town or Village Mayor’s Court. Whether your Ohio traffic ticket is returned to the mayor’s court or directly to the County Municipal Court depends on several factors. Some localities have done away with the mayor’s court. The ones that remain the sitting magistrate must have judicial training. If a municipality does not have a trained magistrate the case must go to the County Municipal Court. Additionally, there is advanced training required for the mayor’s court to hear Ohio DWI / DUI and operating a vehicle impaired cases. So in some cases the traffic violations and infractions are returned to the mayor’s court but the Ohio OVI cases are returned to the County Municipal Court.

In addition to being a court run by the executive branch of government, there are two other main between a mayor’s court and a judicial court. The first of which is that the mayor’s court is not a court of record. This means that there is no stenographer and therefore no appeals can be taken from a mayor’s court decision. Second, unlike in a judicial court defendants charged with misdemeanors who cannot afford counsel do not have the constitutional right to an appointed counsel in mayor’s court.

Having such diverse tribunals in non record courts makes it clear on its face why you need an Ohio traffic court lawyer to protect your rights in mayor’s court. Upon one of our attorneys appearing for you the prosecutor (who also works for the municipality), police officer, and magistrate knows right away that they cannot abuse their authority. Further, there are processes and procedures that all mayors’ courts adhere to that our attorneys are familiar with and defend your speeding ticket within that framework. Moreover, because it is not a court of record and run by the executive branch, while we cannot demand an appeal we can demand a trial de novo in the County Municipal Court to any adverse ruling or excessive penalty. While different than an appeal, it is nonetheless oversight through a fresh start in the County Municipal Court.
