Serious Consequences

There are potentially serious consequences for a traffic violation. You may face fines, increased insurance premiums, or other penalties. The North Carolina Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) has the power to suspend or revoke your driver's license if you accumulate too many points for traffic violations. If this has happened to you, you need the help and advocacy of an attorney to get your license reinstated in traffic court.

North Carolina has a points system for traffic tickets and other driving violations that affect your insurance premiums. Depending on your previous driving record, there may be options available to you to avoid an insurance penalty, including dismissal and a Prayer for Judgment Continued (PJC). A PJC is a determination of guilt by a jury or a court, but there is no sentence imposed. Depending on your circumstances, dismissal is a strong possibility too.

We take the time to listen to each client, thoroughly assess each case, and develop individualized case strategies to ensure they receive the proper and best defense possible.
