Traffic Violation Attorney In Wake County, NC
Have You Received a Speeding Ticket in Raleigh, NC?
If you have received a speeding ticket or other traffic ticket in Raleigh, NC or anywhere in Wake County, it can have an impact on your car insurance premiums for years to come. Many people will simply mail their speeding ticket and fine amount in, without contesting the charges, only to find out that by going to court, they could have saved thousands of dollars in the long run.
Even though going to court sometimes means taking your day off work and cause you stress, it’s still a good idea to at least consult a defense lawyer in Raleigh for what might seem like a minor violation. Often times a lawyer can give you advice on how to handle the ticket and sometimes, if it’s a lesser charge you may not even have to appear.
Will Hiring an Attorney For a Traffic Violation be Expensive?
Many times, people think that hiring an attorney will cost them more than the cost of the fine and court costs. However, hiring a lawyer may save you money in the long run by keeping your insurance premiums lower. A lawyer may also be able to negotiate the fine to a lower amount and sometimes, if the charges are dropped, you can avoid paying court costs altogether.
Most traffic cases can be handled by waiver, which means that the defendant does not need to appear in person. McWilliam tends to continue most of his traffic cases out of Disposition Court and see if he can force the State into a position where the DA has to take a dismissal. The letter-writers go into Disposition Court and plead to the best deal they can get on the first court date. McWilliam has an abiding hatred of pleading his clients guilty to anything in a courtroom in which the State can’t prove its case.
