Charlotte Traffic Ticket Attorneys

Hire a former prosecutor to handle your ticket for you!

Everyone deserves a break now and then! This is especially true when it comes to traffic tickets.

Allow a former prosecutor to handle your ticket for you and work to get you the break you deserve!

At SAFFA LAW GROUP, we get tickets:

  • DISMISSED - either for legal reasons or as part of a negotiated plea with the prosecutor
  • REDUCED - to either a non-moving violation or by reducing the speed/offense with which you were charged

This often results in your receiving NO POINTS and NO INCREASED INSURANCE!

HOW WILL SAFFA LAW GROUP HELP ME BEAT MY SPEEDING TICKET?

When you get a speeding ticket, your 2 main concerns should be:

1. Not getting points on your driving record - because this could lead to:

  • license suspension or revocation
  • future violations being charged as a 2nd or 3rd (or worse) offenses with higher penalties.

2. Not getting points on your insurance record - because this leads to:

  • paying much more for auto insurance (by 25% - 340%!) for the next 3 years!

Our 1st GOAL is to get your speeding ticket dismissed.

When we get your ticket dismissed, you pay NO FINES and get NO POINTS on your record.

At SAFFA LAW GROUP, we have developed an extensive checklist we use to challenge every ticket:

  • did the officer fill out the ticket wrong? = MOTION TO DISMISS!
  • did the officer cite the wrong statute? = MOTION TO DISMISS!
  • did the officer list the wrong tag number? = MOTION TO DISMISS!
  • did the officer cite the wrong date? = MOTION TO DISMISS!
  • did the officer cite an insufficient location? = MOTION TO DISMISS!
  • did the officer fail to show proof his radar was calibrated? = MOTION TO DISMISS!
  • did the officer fail to show his speedometer was calibrated? = MOTION TO DISMISS!
  • was the officer unable to see the violation from his location? = MOTION TO DISMISS!
  • did the officer list the wrong drivers license number/name? = MOTION TO DISMISS!
  • did the officer fail to show up at court (possibly because we moved to continue the hearing to increase the chance this)? MOTION TO DISMISS!
  • and many others...

Our 2nd GOAL (if the ticket isn't dismissed) is to make sure you get NO POINTS on your record.

Our attorneys have various ways to do this - some of which involve our negotiating with the prosecutor & judge to have your charges reduced to either:

  • IMPROPER EQUIPMENT - often times, we can get your speeding ticket reduced to a charge of "improper equipment". This is a "non-moving" violation and results in NO POINTS on your record!
  • PRAYER FOR JUDGEMENT CONTINUED (PJC) - depending on your driving record, we often times can negotiate with the court to enter a PJC. When the court enters a PJC, you are NOT found guilty of the offense. You pay NO FINES (but may have to pay some court costs) and NO POINTS on your record!
  • REDUCTION IN THE SPEED YOU WERE CHARGED WITH - often times we can negotiate to have the speed at which you were charged reduced. This could result in NO POINTS on your record!

Tickets, Points, & Your Driving Privileges

In North Carolina, if you are convicted (found guilty) of certain traffic violations, driver license points will be placed against your driving record. If you accumulate 12 points within a 3-year period, your license could be suspended. If you accumulate 8 points following a license reinstatement, it could result in a second suspension.

If your driver's license is suspended by the point system, it may be suspended for: 60 days on the first suspension, 6 months for a second suspension, and 12 months for a third.

According to the North Carolina Department of Insurance, this is how getting points on your license will cost you money:

Your license will be suspended for 60 days if this is your second speeding ticket where you were driving 15 mph hour or more above the speed limit within a year, or if you are convicted of speeding plus reckless driving on the same occasion.
