Common Questions about McDowell County Traffic Violations

Isn't it easier to just mail in payment for my speeding ticket?

If you mail in payment as instructed on your ticket, you are pleading guilty to the offense listed on your citation. In many cases, this can mean points being added to your driving record and increase to your insurance. Attorney Westall advises never paying off a ticket until you know the legal ramifications. Always free to contact our office at (919) 200-0822 for a free consultation.

Can I save money by going to court myself?

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.

If I hire you, can you guarantee that I won’t get any points on my record?

Unfortunately it is against North Carolina Bar ethics rules for us to give you 100% guarantee that you will not have any points. However, we can guarantee that Attorney Westall will put forth maximum effort to aggressively pursue the greatest possible reduction available in your case. We also offer a full money-back 100% satisfaction guarantee.

My license is currently suspended and I’m not sure why. How can you help?

There are a number of factors that can go into the suspension of your license. Attorney Westall and our office can help you determine the root cause of your suspension and then take the necessary steps to resolve that underlying cause. Whether you need to resolve indefinite traffic tickets or clear up a medical certification issue, Attorney Westall can help. We will pull your driving record and come up with a plan of action to get you back on the road.

I’m licensed in another state, why should I consider hiring an attorney? Can’t I just pay the ticket off?

Depending on your state of residency, your traffic ticket in North Carolina may or may not be reported to your home state. We encourage you to contact a licensed traffic attorney from your state to find out how a North Carolina traffic ticket can affect your driving record. In most cases, a ticket in North Carolina will be reported to your home state, where it can have a similarly adverse effect on your insurance and license.

What happens if I don’t go to court or pay off my ticket?

If you decide not to hire counsel to appear for you and you ignore your ticket, your license will be suspended. The Clerk of Court in McDowell County will report your missed court date and/or unpaid ticket to the North Carolina DMV, who can then take action to suspend your license. You will not be able to get your license reinstated until you handle the unresolved ticket.
