Yet they often do not realize that experienced representation need not be expensive and may actually save them money compared to the fines, insurance penalties and time lost from work, or worse. Often those negatives can be avoided by having a skilled advocate at your side.
Raleigh, NC (PRWEB) February 11, 2009
The North Carolina law firm of Hardison & Cochran has unveiled a new online legal resource for residents of Wake County and surrounding areas who have received a traffic ticket.
The firm's newest Web site, NC Ticket Law, contains important information on what motorists should do when they are cited for a motor vehicle violation. The site also explains how an experienced attorney can help with the more serious citations, such as speeding or impaired driving.
NC Ticket Law is a division of Hardison & Cochran, PLLC, the present parent firm of Hardison & Associates.
"We launched this Web site to make sure the citizens of Raleigh, Wake County and the surrounding communities know what penalties they face when they get a ticket or are arrested on an alleged DWI violation," said senior partner Ken Hardison. "We also want them to know that the firm of Hardison & Cochran is ready to provide affordable, experienced representation with their interests in mind."
NCTicketLaw.com has an easy-to-remember phone number -- 1-800-NC-BUSTED -- and the site offers visitors a free, same-day consultation with one of the firm's attorneys.
Hardison has more than 26 years of experience in the practice of law and has handled hundreds of traffic tickets and DWI cases. Among the firm's 12 attorneys is former prosecutor Joel Sawyer, who has years of experience in criminal law.
Hardison said many people do not realize that a traffic ticket can have a far-reaching impact on their lives. Motorists who get a ticket face higher insurance rates and a conviction on the most serious offenses, such as drunk driving, can mean the loss of driving privileges as well as fines, jail time, probation or community service.
The firm's new site details these potential penalties and explains how an experienced traffic attorney can help clients make the strongest possible defense.
The site includes information on the common arguments used against drivers by prosecutors to avoid reducing their fines and the points system used by the state of North Carolina to suspend or revoke licenses. It also explains how drivers can regain their licenses.
"People may feel they cannot afford a lawyer," Hardison said. "Yet they often do not realize that experienced representation need not be expensive and may actually save them money compared to the fines, insurance penalties and time lost from work, or worse. Often those negatives can be avoided by having a skilled advocate at your side."
