MIP Lawyers

Got busted with alcohol? It happens, but TicketTamer can help keep your record clean – and you will definitely want to take care of it because this offense can have a big impact on your job or career.

What Can I Expect?

We will negotiate a deal for you to bring your MIP charge down to a minor offense. First-time offenders usually have to reckon with the court fines, serve probation time, or possibly other condition, such as carrying out community service or taking a class. However, we ensure that it won’t be too bad, and we stay with you at every step throughout the process.

How Does Probation Work?

Probation is one of the most common condition to reduce MIPs.  The probation period is generally anywhere from 6 months to 2 years. First-time offenders generally don’t have to report to a probation officer. But you do need to avoid getting any other offense during the probation period.

Probation can be of two types, i.e. Suspended Execution of Sentence (SES) and Suspended Imposition of Sentence (SIS).

With SIS, you plead guilty to the reduced offense charges.  The court does not announce any punishment, and the offense gets entirely removed from your record if you complete the probation period without any other offenses. This is why SIS is generally better.

With SES, you plead guilty to the reduced offense, but the court does sentence you, which is different than SIS. You don’t have to serve the sentence if you complete the probation period without getting another offense.  Another big difference is that the SES conviction stays on your record, even if you finish your probation without any other issues.

Both SES and SIS are helpful. But the consequences are serious if you violate probation. With SIS, the court will decide what your punishment will be, and will take into account the new violation when setting your sentence. And don’t forget that, with SES, you have already agreed to the sentence, so if you get into trouble during the probation period, your conviction for SES will be executed and you have to serve it.

Why Pay More?

We only change a $500 attorney fee to fix your MIP, about a third of what most lawyers charge for this offense. That’s it, and it’s a flat fee that includes any appearances we might have to make on your behalf. You will still need to pay any fine or court costs, but we do our best to keep the attorney fee as low as possible.


With our exclusive TicketTamer app, you can handle the whole thing right on your phone. Just download the app, upload your ticket and we get started fixing your ticket. You can even use the app to pay you fee and any fine or court costs. If you have a question, you can send us a chat message, and check the app anytime for the current status of your case.

Why Get a Lawyer to Fix Your MIP Ticket?

You don’t want to just pay your ticket for an MIP.

If you do, you are pleading guilty to the violation. This will put a misdemeanor conviction on your record and could create problems for your job or career.

For example, it could keep you from getting a job involving the handling of money because the offense tells employers that you can’t be trusted. It could also keep you from getting a professional license if you want to go into any field requiring certification, like law or nursing.

You can avoid this risk by hiring a TicketTamer lawyer to fix your ticket. We will get your charge reduced to a lesser offense, like littering or minor trespassing, probably in exchange for some combination of probation, fine, community service, or a class.
