If a Client of Yours Has a Traffic Violation in Rhode Island, Do They Have to Be Present in Court?

court-houseIn a traffic tribunal, the rules of procedure allow me as the attorney to waive my client’s presence and I can also not only waive their presence but I may also dispose of their violation. I will submit to the court an affidavit acknowledging that I went over with the client both the maximum and minimum penalties that would be associated with whatever violation they come to the office with. I would be able to actually save that client a trip, dispose of the violation under the rules, even if it’s an arraignment,  I can waive their presence.
