Raleigh Criminal Defense Attorney, Michelle Sparrow, explains the advantage of hiring an attorney to defend against a traffic ticket offense in North Carolina.
You’re normally a good driver. One day you’re driving to an appointment that you are late for and a cop pulls you over for going 10 miles over the speed limit. They hand you a $300 ticket. What do you do?
It can be tempting to simply pay for a traffic citation or to go into court by yourself in an effort to see the ticket get dismissed. Often times, you will end up footing the bill for an offense when you didn’t need to.
Traffic offenses don’t always result in a simple ticket. You can end up with points on your license, an increase in insurance rates, or, in some cases, a suspended license.
Rather than paying more in fees to fulfill these additional reparations, hiring an attorney could help you ensure a reduction or to have the citation completely discarded.
