TRAFFIC LAW / DWI


TRAFFIC TICKETS


Many people believe that when they receive a traffic citation, it is in their best interests to just pay the fine and costs noted on the back of the ticket.  However, this can cause serious consequences to your license and insurance rates. North Carolina uses a point system for traffic violations.  The number and severity of the violations you incur on your driving record may impact your insurance rates, result in having your license revoked, or even going to jail.  It is especially important for you to speak with an attorney if you have been arrested for DWI or other traffic violation that falls into the criminal misdemeanor category.   


A traffic law attorney from Dunlow & Wilkinson, P.A. can be of great assistance to you in traffic offenses by saving you insurance and license points in many traffic cases.  Often, we can appear on your behalf without you personally being present in Court.  This saves you from missing valuable time at work or home.  Having over thirty-five years of combined experience in the Ninth District, we have the experience that can greatly assist you in a traffic matter.


If you would like to speak with us about your traffic ticket, call our office or fill out this contact form and one of us will contact you.  We look forward to assisting you.


DRIVING WHILE IMPAIRED


Driving While Impaired is a very serious misdemeanor in the State of North Carolina.  A person who is convicted of a DWI, even on their first offense, will have their license revoked for a year, their car insurance rates will increase, on average, 400%, and they could receive active jail time.  It is imperative to have legal representation when you are charged with a DWI.  Dunlow & Wilkinson, P.A. can assist you in presenting defenses that you may not be aware of and advise you of the legal complexities.  Even if you plead guilty or are found guilty, we can assist you in minimizing the punishment you may receive or help you with obtaining a limited driving privilege.  If we can be of service to you, please contact our office to schedule your free consultation.
