Striving To Keep Your Record Clean After A Traffic Ticket

The need to drive is almost universal; even a minor traffic ticket can be a major problem. In North Carolina, depending on the type of offense and your prior record, a traffic violation can result in an increase in your auto insurance premiums, a criminal record, revocation of your driver license, and even jail time. We provide a free initial consultation to evaluate your case.

Speeding · Driving While License Revoked · Other Traffic Violations

Under North Carolina law, there is no logic to the effect a ticket will have on your license or insurance rates. You can't just figure it out. For example, some plea bargains can result in fewer license points yet more insurance points than the original charge. Traffic court holds many traps for the non-lawyer. It is common for us to here from a driver who handled his or her own traffic ticket and received either an unanticipated and significant increase in insurance premiums or an unexpected revocation of his or her driver license. It is more difficult (and expensive) to fix a mistake than to handle it correctly the first time.
