TOLL ROAD VIOLATIONS
If you are the registered owner of a vehicle, and you drive on the Harris County or Fort Bend County toll roads, you are at risk of being sued by the toll road authority for a whole lot of money. At Cory Roth Law Office, we regularly, aggressively, and zealously fight for our clients against the toll road lawyers to lower your debt. While results may vary, and we make no guarantees, but we have a consistent track record of negotiating significant reductions in debt, and winning significant reductions in the Fort Bend County and Harris County toll road administrative courts.
What can Cory Roth Law Office do for you?
If retained, the attorneys at Cory Roth Law Office will make a good faith attempt to negotiate with the debt collection agency to reduce the amount of collection charges levied against you. We always shoot for a long term payment plan unless otherwise directed by the client. However, don’t be surprised if we cannot reach a suitable agreement. In the event we do not reach an agreement with the toll road authority, we will have a hearing at the Harris County or Fort Bend County Toll Road Administrative Court. You must be present at the hearing with your attorney. Hopefully, we can get a significant reduction and the hearing fees waives by the judge. If we do not get a significant reduction, we can then peruse and appeal to county court. Finally, we can also be retained to represent you in the Justice of the Peace Court if you received a traffic ticket for “unauthorized use of the toll roads.”
How Much Does Cory Roth Law Office Charge for Toll Road Violation Representation?
Legal fees are determined on a case by case basis, but our legal fees start at $200.00 for representation for toll road debt collection cases. We can be retained to represent you for traffic tickets for as low as low as $75.00. Appeals are an additional fee.
Why have I been sent to collections and sued by Harris County and/or Fort Bend County?
You have been sent to collections for failing to pay tolls. There are many reasons why people fail to pay toll. Some people do not have an EZ Tag, NTTA Toll Tag, and TX Tag, and willfully do not pay their tolls. Most people, however, have an EZ Tag, NTTA Toll Tag, or TX Tag account an intend to pay, but something happens. Common reasons why people who have a tag run into trouble is that they have insufficient funds in their bank account at any given time; they forget to update their credit or debit card with the toll road authority when the card expires, the card is lost or stolen, or they are victims or fraud; the person took a tag off one vehicle and put it on another; the person changed license plates; the person does not live at the same address where their car is registered; toll transponders has a glitch, and all sorts of other technical issues.
How Long Will It Take for My Case to be Resolved?
Unfortunately, it can take up to six months for your case to be resolved and many factors come into play. For example:
- When were you sent to collections?
- Have you been assigned a hearing date?
- Did you miss your hearing date?
Considering that the Harris County Toll Road Authority filed 129,000 toll road collection lawsuits in 2015 alone, there is a pretty long line to get a hearing. If you just want a better payment plan that the ½ down ½ in a month or two that the debt collection agency will offer you, we can resolve your case much quicker, but it still make take up to three months, and the toll road collection agency lawyers and personnel are slow to respond to our communications.
