Do I need an attorney for a traffic ticket in Mecklenburg County?

The most common question asked when a person receives a traffic ticket is "Do I have to hire an attorney?". Do you have to hire an attorney- No. Should you hire an attorney-Yes.
Traffic laws have become incredibly strict in recent years. Every violation is assigned a point value. Point value is one of a number of factors that determine whether your insurance will increase or whether the DMV will suspend your license. For example, in North Carolina, a person's license will automatically be suspended for thirty days if convicted of driving 15 mph over the speed limit. Here is the link to the North Carolina DMV handbook. You will be shocked to see how easily it is to have your license revoked.
