North Carolina Attorneys Help Clients Challenge Traffic Charges
New Bern law firm assists with reckless driving, speeding and other cases
Traffic offenses may seem relatively minor, but they can limit your ability to live and work as you wish. You could fines, increased auto insurance rates and license suspensions depending on the infraction. That’s why it’s important to fight tickets with the help of an experienced defense attorney. At our New Bern firm, the Carolina Law Group, we deliver strong support for motorists accused of speeding, reckless driving and other moving violations. Authorities often expect defendants in these cases to forfeit their legal rights and accept some form of punishment, but there’s no reason for you to do that. Our firm will wage a vigorous fight in finding and challenging flaws in the government’s case against you.
Dedicated advocates work to ensure fair treatment for accused motorists
Don’t assume that a ticket is the last word on a potential driving violation. You still have the same right to defend yourself as someone facing any other charges. As experienced criminal defense lawyers, we understand how to find errors in the law enforcement process in cases involving allegations such as:
- Reckless driving — In North Carolina, driving erratically or more than 15 miles per hour over the speed limit is grounds for a criminal charge of reckless driving. With the possibility of a $1,000 fine and incarceration, you deserve a thorough defense from a proven criminal litigator.
- Speeding — Even driving slightly faster than the speed limit can lead to fines and increased insurance costs. A multiple offender might even lose their license. Our firm confronts police officers about the accuracy of their determinations and offers appropriate defenses, such as an emergency that prompted you to speed.
- DWI — A drunk driving arrest can be intimidating, but a strong defense lawyer will make sure that your fundamental rights are not infringed upon. A blood alcohol reading that exceeds the .08 percent limit could come from a tainted test or an improper vehicle stop. We pinpoint any errors that occurred and use that information to secure dismissals, acquittals and favorable plea agreements for the drivers we represent.
In many cases, a waiver can be executed so that you don’t have to make an appearance while we advocate for you in court. During a consultation, we can outline your options and work with you to chart a course of action.
