Although we focus our criminal practice primarily on DUI, DUAC, BUI, and more serious offenses (Click here for DUI info.), we also handle some of the more serious South Carolina and North Carolina traffic violations, including reckless driving, excessive speeding cases, driving without a license or insurance (DWLR), driving under suspension (DUS), as well as all underage drinking charges. Simply paying the fine or trying to represent yourself is never a good idea. Even if guilty, we are often able to negotiate a lesser charge or other option, including classes, so your insurance rates are less seriously affected. We are here to help.
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 of your peers. In some cases, we may consider suggesting that you speak with another trusted local attorney concerning your traffic ticket, in particular the attorneys of Nosal & Jeter, LLP.
Even though we offer a Carolinas-wide practice, we focus primarily in Fort Mill, Rock Hill, Charlotte, Tega Cay, Gaston County, Indian Land, Lake Wylie, Clover, York, Lancaster, and Columbia. Our rates are competitive. Call us today and let us take care of your traffic ticket in York, Mecklenburg, Richland, Lexington, Lancaster, Chester, and Gaston counties.
