Traffic Law

Charlotte Lawyers Specializing in Traffic Law

Although traffic violations are some of the most common legal infractions, they can lead to serious fines, spikes in insurance, and even jail time. That’s why it’s important to contact an experienced attorney as soon as possible. The team at Gorman Law Firm PLLC, led by founding attorney Ruth Gorman, has 25 year under their belt fighting for your rights and freedom on the road. Whether you have a minor speeding ticket or a personal injury claim, contact us as soon as possible to learn the next steps for your case today.

We provide legal assistance for many traffic violations, including:

  • Speeding
  • Reckless driving
  • Driving without a license
  • License suspensions and revocations
  • DUI/DWI
  • Traffic accidents
  • Wrongful death
Reduce Costs

While it might seem cheaper and easier to plead guilty and move on after a traffic violation, these offenses can lead to lasting damage to your driving record, loss of driving privileges, and extremely high insurance rates for an average of 3+ years—often costing you more personally and financially than if you had hired an attorney in the first place. If you reach 12 points within a three-year period, your license may be revoked, leading to more fees and hassle to reinstate it. Avoid needless costs by contacting us about your traffic issue today.

How points on your license can affect your insurance:

  • 1 point: 30% increase
  • 2 points: 45% increase
  • 3 points: 60% increase
  • 4 points: 80% increase
  • 8 points: 195% increase
  • 10 points: 260% increase
  • 12 points: 340% increase
Traffic Violations and Your Immigration Status

It is critical to get an attorney who understands the ramifications a traffic violation can have on your immigration status. If you are concerned with being pulled over, familiarize yourself with the 287(g) Program now, and how it affects your county:

Section 287(g) of the "Immigration and Nationality Act"

“The voluntary initiative authorizing state and local law enforcement agencies to work with Immigration Customs Enforcement (ICE) to identify and detain immigration offenders”

See more at Delegation of Immigration Authority Section 287(g) Immigration and Nationality Act
