How Much Does It Cost?

How much does your service cost?

We realize that you likely came to this page with hope that you would find some specific information about how much it would cost for you to get help with your traffic ticket.  Unfortunately, we will not be able to provide you with a list of prices, but we can at least give you a broad idea.

What is the REAL cost of a ticket?

Ticket Shield takes pride in having affordable and reasonable fees. Unlike many other types of legal matters, fighting a traffic ticket often comes down to the question of “how do I save the most money?”  Sometimes the answer could be to just pay the ticket, and sometimes the answer is to fight it.  We realize this, and we know that people are not going to spend more money in legal fees than they believe they would spend if they just paid the ticket. 

Unfortunately, the calculation for how much a ticket will “cost” if you are found guilty is complicated.  The fine is the easy part.  You generally know how much the fine is or at least know a range.  The unpredictable part is your insurance rates.  The impact a ticket has on insurance rates is based on a number of factors, a few of which are the type of ticket you were charged with, your prior record and what insurance company you are with.

We would never recommend that you pay us to help with a ticket when we do not think it will benefit you.  If you contact us, we can at least help give you an idea about the damage the ticket would cause if you are found guilty versus the result if you fight it.  This is a very important part of what we do and why we offer FREE consultations.

What if your fee is more than the fine on my ticket?

It might be. However, this does not mean that it would be “cheaper” to just pay the ticket. Generally speaking, the fine (and our fee for that matter) is inconsequential compared to the amount your insurance rates will go up per year if found guilty of the ticket.  Worse yet, your license could be suspended, and in some cases, there could be jail or probation on the line as well. Often times the fine should be the least of your concerns.

Ticket Shield takes pride in being a way to save you money – not cost you more. Hiring us should feel like you are making a wise investment to save a substantial amount of money in the long term.  This concept is broken down in more detail on our “Should I Fight My Traffic Ticket” page.

Can you at least give me an idea of how much it will be?

Of course.  Keep in mind that we handle tickets across all of Ontario, which includes some pretty remote and small communities.  Some of them involve driving long distances from out of town.  This will mean we need to charge more.

For a relatively simple case, we usually charge somewhere in the $300.00 to $500.00 range.  Again, it depends on the location, the details of the case, and the number of tickets involved.  For a more serious or complex case, the fees will generally be in the $500.00 to $1000.00 range.  If this sounds like a pretty broad range of fees, that’s because it is.  We would prefer to give you an exact and specific flat fee quote.  Filling out our consultation request form usually takes less than a minute and we will normally get back to you within minutes with a free, no obligation, quote and case assessment.
