Attorney For Traffic Violations In Macon And Cherokee Counties

In some cases, contesting a traffic ticket will save you money in the long term. If you have points on your driver's license, another ticket may put you over the limit. Twelve points on your license in three years may cause a license suspension. Accumulating eight points within three years following the reinstatement may mean a second suspension.

With my years of criminal defense experience, I can quickly assess your case and tell you whether fighting the ticket is worth the money. If it is not, I will advise you to pay the fine. However, when fighting the ticket can protect your license and/or your criminal record, I will discuss the options with you. With offices in Franklin and Murphy, I handle cases in Macon County, Cherokee County and beyond.

Tickets, Misdemeanors And License Suspensions

I defend people against all traffic-related offenses, including:

  • Speeding
  • Driving while license revoked
  • Reckless driving/driving to endanger

In North Carolina, some traffic offenses are criminal acts, not just violations. Reckless driving is a misdemeanor with penalties that may include a jail sentence, fines, four demerit points and a license suspension. Driving with a suspended or revoked license (DWLR) is also a misdemeanor that includes penalties of up to 120 days in jail and another license suspension.

A first-offense DWI/DUI charge will result in an automatic driver's license suspension of 30 days. I can defend you in the criminal part of the case and represent you at the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) license suspension hearing.

If your license has been suspended or revoked, it is important to talk to a lawyer and take care of the reason for the suspension. I can help you clear up the underlying problem so you can restore your driving privileges.
