You Might Benefit From Fighting Your Traffic Ticket

Being pulled over for speeding or some other kind of traffic violation in North Carolina can seem like a nuisance. You may be tempted to simply pay the fine you are assessed — if you are not required to appear in court — and move on. However, having a serious traffic violation on your record can affect you more than you might realize and could ultimately impact your driving privileges.

The attorneys at Schmitz Law, P.C., work with people who are facing a variety of traffic violations to help them minimize potential penalties and allow them to continue driving in our state with a valid driver's license. We also work with people charged with misdemeanor criminal charges, as well as DWI.

What You Don't Know Could Hurt You

Being pulled over and ticketed for speeding, reckless driving or another traffic offense could trigger larger issues for unsuspecting motorists. In many cases you are required to appear in court before a judge, which can be an intimidating experience. Often times we can appear in court on your behalf, saving you the hassle of standing in long lines and from using your precious vacation days to appear in court.

Failure to appear at this kind of hearing could result in the driver's license being suspended or revoked. In turn, this can lead to even more severe penalties if someone is pulled over and has a revoked license.

Our Winston-Salem lawyers know how speeding tickets and other moving violations can impact someone's life. Aside from having to pay a fine, a driver's insurance rates might go up considerably - likely far more than you might expect. Also, traffic violations can add up over time, adding points to a driver's license that could put it at risk of being revoked.

We work to reduce penalties and consequences for our clients, sometimes via a compromised plea where the judge assess a smaller fine or accept a plea to reduced charges.
