Why hire an attorney to represent you on a traffic violation when the attorney fee costs more than the citation? The quick answer: because the attorney fee will not cost more than the cost of the citation.
Cannon-Eckerle Law Services charges a one-time flat fee to represent you on a traffic violation, whereas the costs associated with a traffic violation continue to accrue over time. Such costs include: 1) points accumulated on your driving record; 2) points accumulated on your car insurance record; 3) statutory automatic suspensions; and 4) possibility of criminal history points.
The driving record points affect whether or not you are able retain your driving privilege in North Carolina. The car insurance points determine how much you pay for insurance premiums. At the firm, we call this the “Double Whammy,” because either way these points hurt. Furthermore, certain violations will cause your license to be suspended automatically.

Lastly, even more surprising than the long term financial burden of a traffic ticket is that certain traffic violations are charged as misdemeanor crimes, not just infractions. Consequently, a conviction of one of these traffic offenses will cause you to have a permanent criminal history.

At Cannon-Eckerle Law Services, an experienced traffic attorney will figure it so you do not have to. The attorney will work on your behalf to get the best result available under the circumstances.
