Tickets

Question....I received two tickets for driving without insurance back in 2004.  The result is that my drivers license was suspended pending my getting SR-22 insurance.  I got the insurance, paid off both tickets, and all the resulting surcharges from the tickets, and provided all of this information to the law schools in the application process.  The schools said I didn't have to list any Class C traffic violations, unless they resulted in the suspension of my driver's license, or they were alcohol related.  Does anyone think that I will have any problems in the future when dealing with my bar application? ???

If you disclose it, you might have to answer some questions about it, but you should be fine.  Just don't think for a second you can leave it off.  You just need to disclose everything, no matter how minute you think it is.

I agree. Failure to disclose or actively concealing something is usually worse than if you had erred on the sider of caution and disclosed initially.

I disclosed it when I applied to the school.  I was just wondering if it is going to have any effect.  The school suggested that I contact the Texas Bar Examiner's office to find out how it may effect me in the future.  I called the Bar Examiner, and they said that if this is the extent of the tickets, and I disclosed it (which I did), then I should be fine.
