I currently offer representation for the following: Orange County traffic tickets, Chatham County traffic tickets, Durham County traffic tickets, Alamance County traffic tickets, and Wake County traffic tickets. I represent clients with Orange County traffic tickets and Chatham County traffic tickets most frequently, but would gladly discuss with you any charges pending in other North Carolina counties. If I cannot assist you, I would be glad to refer you to a traffic ticket attorney in the appropriate county.
Traffic tickets are not the harmless slips of paper that they seem to be. Often times, we are told by law enforcement officers or acquaintances to simply pay off traffic tickets without fear of the consequences.
Paying off tickets is almost always a bad idea!!!
Paying off these tickets results in a guilty plea to whatever offenses you are charged with, which will almost always result in DMV and Insurance points.
Just one point on your insurance causes a premium increase of 30%! Four points would mean an increase of 80%! Moreover, many of the speeding tickets people receive can have license revocation penalties as well. If you get a speeding ticket, it is very important that you contact a traffic ticket attorney immediately before simply mailing in your payment.
What can a traffic lawyer do for me?
Certainly you could appear in court on your own and attempt to dispose of the charges against you. Often, however, defendants who retain a lawyer to represent them in traffic issues obtain more favorable outcomes. I can offer you two particularly valuable benefits:
- CONVENIENCE: If you hope to achieve a better disposition of your charges by a court appearance, it will mean taking a day off of work, sitting in the traffic court room waiting for your name to be called, and submitting yourself to a hostile environment that you are unlikely to be to familiar with. In most cases, a lawyer with a written waiver of appearance can appear in court on your behalf, saving you the time and stress of wasting a day in traffic court.
- ADVOCACY: More importantly, a lawyer is your advocate. A traffic attorney knows the law and is familiar with the workings of court. Hiring a traffic lawyer shows the Assistant District Attorney that you are serious about the charges against you and that you and your attorney may be willing to try your case. The Assistant District Attorney most likely has between 200 and 800 more cases just like yours to deal with that day, and would prefer not to have to try the case, which would put him or her dreadfully behind in their duties. This gives the State an incentive to reduce the charges against you, perhaps to a more reasonable charge which all parties can live with, and with your traffic attorney’s knowledge of the law, he or she can help get the disposition that is best for you in the circumstances.
