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.
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.
