I received a fta for a traffic violation and a notice threatening to suspend my drivers license. I was a misunderstanding, but I need legal advice.

More details to this question:
The original ticket was for using my cell phone and driving, which I initially was going to contest. I scheduled a court date to do so on 3/1/17. However, my daughter fell ill and was hospitalized that day and consequently missed my court date. I was under the impression I still had until the date on the ticket to just pay it , but when I went to go pay the ticket the clerk informed me that my fine had tripled due to the fta. I requested a court date to see the judge for the matter. I am scheduled to see the judge on 3/21/17. However, I feel I need counsel to help me correct the matter due to the courts threatening to suspend my drivers license.

A traffic (FTA) warrant can be recalled without you having to appear in court. You should hire an attorney to have the matter set on calendar and the warrant recalled.

Traffic Violations
Have you been ticketed for a traffic violation? Whether you were charged with speeding, running a red light or stop sign, reckless driving, improper lane usage, driving under the influence, driving on a expired, suspended or revoked license, or other moving violation, talk to criminal defense attorneys or traffic violation lawyers immediately. Depending on your state's laws, you may be at risk of fines, a revoked license, arrest, imprisonment and other penalties if you are found guilty. Moving violations can also result in higher automobile insurance premiums. A criminal defense law firm may be able to negotiate a plea agreement or even challenge the facts surrounding your ticket, resulting in lower charges and penalties, or charges that are dropped entirely.
