When Facing Traffic Violations, Call An Experienced Lawyer
There are important benefits when hiring a qualified attorney, instead of representing yourself, if you face any traffic‑related offense in Alexander and Iredell counties: One of them is that you may increase your chances of being found not guilty. Whatever costs you think you might be saving by representing yourself, if you are convicted, there are other consequences such as a significantly more expensive insurance premium.
When you work with the lawyers at Harbinson & Brzykcy, Attorneys at Law, if your appearance in court is not required, they will appear on your behalf to prevent any disruptions in your workday and the potential loss of income.
Although it is always best to achieve exoneration from any traffic charge, sometimes the chances of that outcome might be slim. Under such circumstances, we will work with you and suggest a plea deal with either the prosecutor or judge.
No matter the course of action, our goal is to work toward an expeditious resolution that allows you to resume your normal daily activities as quickly as possible. We strive to do all of this with the absolute minimum financial expense (court costs, fines and our fees).
As we take your legal matter, some factors will determine our ability to get charges dismissed, for instance: your driving history, the severity of the charges, any injuries or property damage stemming from the alleged infraction, and your interaction with the law enforcement officer who cited you.
