Raleigh Criminal Defense Attorney, Michelle Sparrow, illustrates how Sparrow Law Firm could be of counsel to someone who lives out-of-state.
You’re on vacation in Raleigh and you get a parking ticket. You live in California and you’re only there for the weekend. You’re not going to be able to travel back to go to court to try and have your ticket dismissed. What can you do?
Depending on what the case is about, an attorney could operate on your behalf using a waiver. The waiver means that you would not need to travel back to Raleigh. A waiver can also be obtained in the event that you do not feel comfortable appearing on your own behalf.
Having an attorney handling your case could also afford you the opportunity to ask for a continuance in the event that you need to appear in court but cannot make your scheduled appointment.
