We can help! Many clients come to Jolly, Williamson & Williamson under the assumption that their only option after receiving a traffic ticket is to pay it. However, that isn’t the case! Our job is to educate our clients on the impact of these types of violations and what steps they need to take in order to make sure it doesn’t affect their license in the future.
Non-moving violations mainly involve seat belt and registration issues. Moving violations are more serious and can include:
Perhaps you say “Well, I will just pay it because I can’t go to court.” Paying a ticket is the same as pleading guilty. The more tickets you receive and pay, the more likely you are to pay more for insurance. Two “point systems” exist in North Carolina. The Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) governs license suspension while the Department of Insurance regulates insurance rates.
At Jolly, Williamson & Williamson, we encourage our clients to be proactive in contacting us after they receive a traffic ticket, even if it is their first one. Our criminal defense lawyers employ the same approach in handling these cases. Assuming that legal fees are not worth the effort to overturn a ticket should force you to consider the cost of increased insurance premiums, fines and driver’s license reinstatement.
The attorneys at Jolly Williamson Attorneys at Law know the ins and outs of North Carolina traffic courts. Call our Louisburg office at 919-496-4152 or contact us online to schedule a free consultation.
