Traffic Attorney Contests Tickets in Greensboro, NC
What you need to know about traffic violations
Because traffic tickets don’t carry a jail sentence, many people simply avail themselves of North Carolina’s online payment system, believing that they will “take care of it” by paying a fine. If you have received a traffic ticket, talk to The Law Offices of Ames Chamberlin, P.L.L.C. to discover the implications of paying that fine. Paying the fine is an admission of guilt, and will likely affect your insurance rates and your driving record. Many traffic offenses carry “points,” which go on your driving record. Accumulating many points increases your insurance costs. Too many points can result in a driver license suspension.
Do not pay a traffic ticket without talking to us first. Ames Chamberlin is a Greensboro traffic ticket lawyer who has extensive experience in handling traffic violation cases. We know North Carolina traffic laws and work diligently to get your traffic ticket reduced or dismissed. Some of the many traffic violations we have contested include successfully:
More serious traffic offenses are not violations but crimes. For example, a hit-and-run accident where you cause property damage or a minor injury is a misdemeanor and can result in a criminal record and jail time. Should you leave the scene of the accident that caused serious injury or death, you face felony charges and a possible prison sentence. Similarly, driving on a suspended or revoked driver license and driving while impaired (DWI) are also mistakenly thought of as “traffic violations” but are crimes.
