Why Fight A Traffic Ticket? It Can Save You Money, And Even Your Job
If you have recently received a traffic citation in Onslow County, Mewborn & DeSelms, Attorneys at Law, can help limit the impact your traffic citation will have on your insurance and driver’s license. Paying a ticket is the same as an admission of guilt, and it shows as a conviction on your record.
As a result, a traffic ticket can increase your insurance rates and even limit your ability to drive. If you drive for a living or to get to your workplace, losing your license may cause you to lose your job.
Fortunately, pleading guilty to speeding or another traffic violation is not the only option in most cases. Let our attorneys apply their knowledge of the law and the judicial system to effectively represent your interests. In most instances, you will not have to go to court or miss valuable time from work.
The Importance Of A Solid Criminal Defense
Likewise, being charged with a criminal offense can be a life-changing experience, and a conviction can have severe consequences on your freedom and on your ability to find employment in the future.
After hearing your side of the story and examining facts of your case, we can seek a dismissal of charges if your rights were violated, represent you at trial, attempt to reduce the severity of charges, or recommend participation in a diversion program to exclude a misdemeanor or felony conviction from your record.
Seek An Expungement And Protect Your Future
Finally, if you have been arrested or convicted for a traffic or criminal offense, we can seek, in certain circumstances, an expungement to have all traces of an arrest removed from your record. When successful, an expungement can eliminate traces of an arrest from being seen by employers and educational institutions performing background checks.
