Common Questions about Catawba County Traffic Citations

Do I have to be in traffic court in Hickory, NC?

In Catawba County, your citation will indicate whether your appearance is required on your court date. However, with some exceptions, Attorney Wise will be able to appear in court on your behalf without you having to be there. Generally, the exceptions are when your violation could result in jail time or an automatic license suspension.

Is it not easier to just pay off my Catawba County, North Carolina speeding ticket?

When you mail in your payment to the Catawba County Clerk of Court, or pay online, you are admitting your guilt to the charge on your citation. Paying off a ticket has the potential to cause serious ramifications to your auto insurance rates and can cause your license to be suspended. It is recommended that you consult with a Hickory speeding ticket attorney who focuses on traffic violations.

I received a speeding ticket in Hickory, NC but I live in another state. Will the North Carolina speeding ticket affect my auto insurance rates or driver’s license?

It is possible, it depends on your State’s DMV and Department of Insurance guidelines. In many States (North Carolina included) an out of state speeding ticket can affect both your driver’s license and insurance premiums. Before you choose to pay the speeding ticket or ignore the speeding ticket, be sure to speak with either an attorney or your State’s DMV and Department of Insurance to find out how your insurance rates and driver’s license would be affected. Attorney Wise recommends consulting a licensed North Carolina traffic attorney before you consider paying off your ticket.

Can I save money by going to Catawba County court by myself?

Absolutely, you can avoid the cost of legal representation by going to court yourself. However, what is the opportunity cost? Losing a vacation day (or two or three) at work? Hiring a babysitter? Going to court to handle a ticket can be an uphill battle for someone who is not an attorney. It isn't uncommon to spend several hours waiting in line just to speak with an Assistant District Attorney - a person whose entire career revolves around prosecuting these types of offenses to the fullest extent of the law. This person is prohibited from giving you advice about how your conviction will impact your license or insurance. If you decide to fight your ticket, your hearing will likely be continued to a future date, meaning you must miss then another day of work just to finalize your case.

Jokingly, we like to think of ourselves sometimes like plumbers. If you have a leaking pipe at your house and are highly experienced in handling such matters, you don't need to hire a plumber. However, if you aren't sure how to handle it, but try to fix it, you could accidentally flood your entire house. The same concept applies to traffic citations. If you're not very comfortable with North Carolina Department of Motor Vehicle and Department of Insurance Laws, getting what you think is a "good" outcome could possibly skyrocket your insurance premiums.
