More information about getting a DWI attorney

Careless and reckless driving
This charge is usually associated with speeding. If not handled properly this ticket can cause your license to be suspended and a drastic increase in your vehicle insurance policy.
Driving without a valid license - NOL
You can be charged with NOL if you are from a foreign country and you fail to obtain a driver’s permit in North Carolina. The state lawmakers have tightened the requirements to keep undocumented immigrants from obtaining licenses and license plates. In recent years the penalties for driving without them have increased. However, these changes haven’t stopped hundreds of undocumented immigrants from driving regularly. Undocumented immigrants who are stopped for common traffic violations might end up being deported.
Driving with a suspended or revoked driver’s license - DWLR
Driving with revoked license is a Class 2 misdemeanor in North Carolina. Conviction of DWLR will get you 3 DMV license points and an insurance rate increase of 25%, not to mention steep fines and possible imprisonment. Our experienced traffic attorneys could even find ways to reinstate your license so you could get back your privilege to drive. Driving with a suspended license include cases involving a suspension based on serious traffic violations, failure to pay child support, failure to pay a ticket and DWI.
