Traffic Violation Defense Attorneys In North Carolina

If you have been ticketed in North Carolina for a vehicle-related offense, you may believe that your only choice is to accept the fact and pay the fine. There can be significant consequences, however. Your insurance premiums can increase dramatically. You may face substantial fines. In certain situations, if you have accumulated enough points on your driving record, your license may even be suspended. You want an experienced lawyer to protect your interests.

At The Law Office of Jeffrey Scott Thompson, PLLC, our attorneys aggressively defend individuals who have been cited for traffic violations, from speeding tickets to charges of reckless driving. We know from experience that many traffic citations can be successfully challenged. We value the relationship we build with every one of our clients, and with us you know you have a lawyer you can trust. Contact us today to schedule a confidential consultation.

Seeking To Reduce Points On Your Record

North Carolina is a points-violation state. A citation for a moving violation will add insurance points to your license, leading to increased premiums. A ticket may also carry driver's license points. A total of 12 points over a certain amount of time can lead to the suspension of your license.

When you hire us to defend your traffic violation, we will seek to have the ticket withdrawn or, if that is not possible, to have the charge reduced so that it is no longer a points-violation offense. Our goals are to minimize the effect on your insurance premiums, as well as the potential for suspension of your license.
