DWI/DUI /BWI Lawyers

DWI Attorneys In Mecklenburg, Cabarrus, Iredell & Lincoln Counties

Have you been stopped and charged with drunk driving or driving while impaired ( DUI/DWI)? We can help mitigate the fines and penalties associated with a DWI/DUI conviction.

Or perhaps you were boating on Lake Norman or Lake Wylie and were stopped by an officer and ticketed for Boating While Impaired (BWI). Was the officer operating within his or her legal capacity to arrest or ticket you? What were the circumstances under while you were arrested?

For questions related to alcohol related offenses, it is imperative that you contact us quickly. An arrest for DWI/BWI will automatically revoke your driver’s license for 30 days. However, with our help it can be reinstated for limited use after 10 days. In addition, we can help you fight the drunk driving charge that may increase your insurance premiums and could subject you to jail time.

Speeding Ticket Defense Attorneys

Traffic Ticket Attorneys In Mecklenburg, Cabarrus, Iredell & Lincoln Counties

Waiving your court appearance and paying a traffic ticket is never the best option; paying is the equivalent of a guilty plea, which can result in increased insurance premiums and a revocation of your driver’s license. At the Knox Law Center, we take traffic violations seriously and can help you avoid the severe penalties associated with such convictions. Our traffic ticket defense lawyers handle a variety of traffic violations from speeding tickets to reckless driving.

  • I highly recommend Knox Law to anyone who has had a personal injury! Allen Brotherton made a stressful situation as stress free as possible. He and Sherry answered all my questions promptly and explained the process in detail to me. Allen and his team worked hard to win the case, and I didn’t even have to go to court in the end! He truly cares about his clients and I cannot say enough about how positive of an experience this was. I’m so glad I chose to work with them.

  • I had one rough time in the State of N.C. getting a hearing to reinstate my Drivers License. YEARS of red tape, classes etc. YEARS of getting absolutely nowhere. Until a friend referred me to Allen Brotherton. Today we had my hearing AND I WAS REINSTATED!!! It wasn’t easy but Mr. Brotherton and his team were AWESOME. So Professional and prepared.

Exceptional Legal Representation & True Professional, Genuine Individual

I first met Allen after he was recommended to me by a friend, and I couldn't be happier with the service that he provided. He demonstrated a unique attention to detail in my case, as well as expressed a genuine interest in me as a person. Through a great deal of hard work, Allen was able to appeal my case and get all of my charges dismissed. I couldn't be more grateful for him and his assistant, Sherry, for their legal and personal support during such a difficult time. Hiring Allen was the greatest decision I've ever made, and I would recommend Allen to anyone seeking exceptional legal representation.
