Do I Really Need an Attorney? Why Can’t I Just Do This Myself?
Our lawyers get these two questions everyday from people who have been given a speeding ticket. Our answer is that you don’t have to have a lawyer, but it does help. When you hire us, you’re hiring professionals. Many of our clients are very good at what they do, whether they are plumbers, electricians, teachers, doctors, or any other profession, but very few have extensive experience handling courtroom matters, which is where we come in. We handle thousands of citations or tickets every year and have a great deal of experience in the courtroom. Every individual has a comfort zone, and ours is in the courtroom. We can use our knowledge and experience to help you obtain superior results in regard to your citation.
Not only do we offer extensive experience, but we believe that we also offer convenience and peace of mind. Many traffic tickets can be discussed over the telephone (toll-free 910-722-9717), or by e-mail, and in many instances we can handle the paperwork by fax, mail, or e-mail, as our clients require. Additionally, we can often appear without the necessity of a client having to take time off from work or school, and we can take payments by Visa, Mastercard, Visa Check Card, Discover Card, as well the traditional checks and money orders. We believe we can take the worry out of it for you.
Do I Have the Right to a Trial?
Yes, you have the right to a trial. Each case is different, and sometimes there may be a legitimate issue for trial, while at other times it may be better to admit fault but mitigate the damage to your driving record by negotiating a different result. The decision about taking a case to trial requires a thorough examination of the facts of your individual case and an analysis of the risks involved. One significant risk to consider is that once a judge renders a decision, you cannot go back and negotiate the outcome if the decision is different from what you desire. We help people weigh these options on a daily basis
