SC Traffic Tickets
Although we focus our criminal practice primarily on DUI, DUAC, BUI, and more serious offenses (Click here for DUI info.), we also handle South Carolina and North Carolina traffic violations, including speeding, reckless driving, driving without a license or insurance (DWLR), driving under suspension (DUS), as well as all underage drinking charges. Simply paying the fine or attempting to represent yourself is never a good idea. Even if guilty, we may be able to negotiate a lesser charge or offer other options, including classes, so your insurance rates remain the same or are less seriously affected. We are here to help. Call us today for possible alternatives to just “paying the fine.”
First, we carefully review the particular facts of your case, in person or over the phone, whichever you prefer. We then mail or email you a Retainer Agreement for your signature. You can pay by credit card or personal check. We do not insult our clients by asking for a “money order.” We then request a jury trial which postpones your Court date, usually for several months. Before trial, we negotiate on your behalf with the charging officer. Once we have a final proposal from the officer, we discuss your options, and then you decide what you want to do. In many cases, we are able to negotiate a “no points” solution that protects your driving record. Of course, you may have to pay additional fines, but your insurance rates remain the same. If you do not want to accept a plea, we always remain ready to try your case before a jury. In many cases, we will suggest that you associate our local Fort Mill traffic attorney friends at Nosal & Jeter, LLP.
