Accident? Traffic ticket? Let our licensed paralegals be your voice in court…
Serving over one million clients since 1984. Walk-ins welcome. Free consultation.
Most everyone who has ever driven a car knows the feeling. You see the flashing lights in your rear-view mirror, and while they may appear closer than they are, they’re not nearly far enough away.
What follows for most drivers is a sense of helplessness, knowing that they’ll likely have to pay a fine with the potential for demerit points, licence suspension and the guarantee for skyrocketing insurance rates, especially for young drivers.
But all is not lost and that’s where POINTTS™, The Traffic Ticket Specialists comes in.
“For most people it’s not first and foremost about the fine,” said Randy Smale one of POINTTS™ Ottawa’s licensed paralegals, “although they’d rather not pay the fine, it’s not first and foremost about the demerit points either, it’s the insurance implications.”
Founded in 1984 in Toronto and operating in Ottawa since 1986, POINTTS™ offers paralegal service to anyone wishing to fight their ticket. To date POINTTS™ has served over 1,000,000 clients from “16 to 86.”
“We offer free consultation where people can come in and talk to us,” said Smale. “If there’s something we can do, we’ll tell you. If there’s nothing we can do, we tell them that too.”
Smale attributes the high level customer satisfaction to the in-depth and knowledgeable service they receive at POINTTS™ and as a 13 year veteran of the Ottawa Police Service before his change of career in 1999, Smale offers his clients a wealth of experience.
“Its a wealth of knowledge that I’m able to impart to them,” said Smale, “our definite benefit is our experience in dealing with the police, with the prosecutors, in dealing with the court system.”
The experience could help people with something as simple as making sure their ticket was written and filed properly, which could lead to a dismissal of charges. In more complex cases, however, their knowledge of the system, burden of proof and the process by which the police operate can be invaluable when determining if a ticket is worth fighting.
“We go through everything step-by-step with everyone that comes through the door,” said Smale. “If you come in with a ticket we tell you the problems, we tell you the issues we see for you.”
Clients of POINTTS™ also have access to their entire network which stretches across Ontario into Manitoba and Alberta.
Though they offer a wide network, POINTTS™ is ultimately about helping the little guy in his attempt to fight city hall.
“I didn’t like giving out tickets when I was a police officer but I gave out lots of tickets,” said Smale “but now I help people out with their tickets. It’s a good feeling, I enjoy doing what I’m doing.”
If there is was one thing Smale could say to anyone faced with a ticket?
“Never, ever simply pay a ticket,” he advises, “always call, paying that ticket could be the worst thing you do” “It doesn’t cost you anything to call us,” Smale concludes “but it could cost you plenty if you don’t.”
It’s that straightforward approach, along with their A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau, which has won POINTTS™ the Consumer Choice Award for last couple years.
