Fighting Traffic Violations In North Carolina
There is no such thing as “just a traffic ticket.” Serious traffic violations are criminal offenses. In many cases, what a driver thought was a simple traffic violation can quickly turn into a nightmare.
If you are charged with a serious traffic offense, you need experienced, capable legal representation. In Fayetteville, North Carolina, drivers turn to me, attorney R. Gregg Edwards, to protect their rights. I represent in- and out-of-state drivers facing violations such as:
- Driving while intoxicated (DWI)
- Driving while license suspended or revoked
- Driving without insurance
- Reckless driving
- Running a stop sign or red light
Why You Need An Attorney’s Help
Many serious traffic offenses can lead to jail time, in addition to substantial monetary fines. If it is a drunk driving offense, the penalties may be even more severe.
The nightmare does not stop with the court’s sentence. A serious traffic offense conviction may result in a substantial increase in your motor vehicle insurance premium. The increased premium could stay with you for a number of years. In some cases, your coverage may be canceled completely. An unpaid ticket in North Carolina could also prevent you from getting a license in another state.
It is easy to see how a single mistake, or a lapse in judgment, can continue to haunt a person for years. As your lawyer, I will examine the details of your stop and help you figure out the best way to proceed. That may include getting your charges reduced, or it may involve getting your ticket thrown out entirely.
