Traffic Violations

Craven and Pamlico County Traffic Violations Lawyer

If you have been arrested for or charged with a crime, do not face the legal system alone. Entrust your case to me, attorney Dan Potter. I have over 16 years of experience defending clients in many different types of criminal law matters. I am committed to my clients, fighting as aggressively as necessary in order to preserve your rights.

Traffic Violations and Speeding Tickets

As minor as traffic violations seem, they can seriously affect your driving record and insurance rates. For example, a ticket for 10 miles per hour over the speed limit may result in a surcharge of 45% added to your insurance premium. There are many ways to handle traffic citations that can save on insurance costs and prevent the revocation of driving privileges, including:

  • Negotiating a reduced charge
  • Asking the court to continue the judgment based upon a good driving record

I handle many types of traffic tickets for clients in North Carolina and out-of-state drivers who receive a citation while passing through the area. With popular tourist destinations in the New Bern area, including Atlantic Beach, Emerald Isle, and Beaufort, people from across North Carolina find themselves facing traffic citations on US-70, US-17, and State Highway 55 may face serious consequences. I know the impact a traffic ticket can have on your life, and I understand your options for reducing that impact.

It is possible for clients, in-state and out-of-state, to sign a waiver if the charge requires a personal appearance. This waiver allows me to appear in court on your behalf to resolve the matter without the trouble and expense of your coming to court.

Contact a North Carolina criminal defense attorney that thoroughly understands the law and can stand up for your rights. A free consultation is offered for criminal law clients so you can understand the possibilities for your case without cost or obligation. Flexible appointment times and telephone consultations are available and I accept Visa and MasterCard as forms of payment, as well as in-state checks, money orders, and cash.
