What To Do After Getting A Speeding Ticket

In North Carolina, there is criminal court and traffic court, so speeding tickets don’t require a criminal defense attorney but rather a traffic ticket lawyer. Even drivers with a spotless driving record can incur speeding tickets throughout their lifetime. If you receive a ticket, it will include a court date. However, in many instances, your attorney can help you dispose of the case before appearing before the traffic court.

There is an option to waive the charge, which we can help you do online, in person or through mail. It’s also possible to formally request a reduction or dismissal of the ticket online. These options involve petitioning the office of the District Attorney.

When To Hire a Traffic Ticket Attorney

Receiving a traffic ticket can be stressful, even for a minor infraction. A traffic ticket attorney from our firm can assist you in contesting your ticket before a traffic court when the ticket is for:

  • Speeding
  • Red light violations
  • Moving violations
  • Distracted driving
  • Making illegal U-turns
  • Driving without valid registration
  • Inadequate insurance coverage

Other Types of Criminal Charges

Offenses that are more serious, such as a DWI, can carry a felony charge in North Carolina, requiring you to hire a criminal defense attorney rather than a traffic ticket lawyer. At Freedom Law | North Carolina, we can help with DWI and simple assault charges as well as traffic tickets.

  • Traffic Tickets

In North Carolina, a traffic ticket can carry severe penalties. While they are abundantly common, you could face fines, and even jail time, depending on the violation you have been charged with. If you received a traffic ticket, call us today to discuss your options. Don’t let a ticket cost you your license.

  • Simple Assault

There is a saying that there is “nothing simple about simple assault,” and it could not be more true. In North Carolina, there is no statute that defines assault, and to be charged with assault, you do not even have to cause physical injury to another person. Assault can carry a hefty sentence, including jail time, and a conviction is often detrimental to your life, and can affect your job and employment opportunities. If you have been charged with assault, contact our experienced criminal defense attorney today.

  • Expungements

North Carolina’s expungement laws allow you to put your life back together after you have been charged or convicted of certain crimes. An Expungement or Expunction, if granted, will remove your criminal record from the public eye, allowing you to go on living your life without the stigma associated with your past. If you have a criminal record and want it removed, Freedom Law | North Carolina will meet with you to discuss your eligibility.
