I received it in the mail. Their is no fine just citation with abatement
It is a notification that you got a citation. You need to go to their field office on the date they gave you for a citation conference and they will tell you how much the fine will be. Then you can either accept it or appeal it in 30 days.
What would be the outcome if I appeal. It was an honest mistake.
I don't think anyone can predict the outcome if you appeal. Just do it, appeal.
I've always said, and some BAR officials and PRs agree with me, anyone can make a mitsake. I don't talk to enforcement, so I have no idea what they're thinking, and they're the ones you have to deal with.
In the mean time, stop fretting over it, take what you've learned from the experience, and do what you do to the best of your ability.
Why make it simple, when it will work equally as well complicated.
