IREDELL COUNTY TRAFFIC TICKET ATTORNEY
Most drivers, at some point during their lives, will receive a traffic citation. It is a frustrating experience, which no driver wants to deal with. You are required to take off work and spend a significant portion of your day waiting around in court. What should you do?
DO NOT SIMPLY PAY THE TICKET!
Simply paying your citation on the ww.payNCticket.org website could result in your insurance premiums increasing by 25%-340% for the next 3 years, in addition to license points. Unfortunately, many uninformed drivers simply pay for their citations, as instructed on their ticket, without first contacting the Law Office of Steven C. Follum P.C., only to be surprised by skyrocketing insurance premiums. Do not make the same mistake.
Contact The Law Office of Steven C. Follum today and see how simple and cost effective it is to have an experienced attorney handle the matter for you. In most instances, you will not need to appear in court. Simply sign a waiver of appearance, and an experienced traffic attorney will take care of the rest!
MAINTAINING A CLEAN DRIVING RECORD CAN PAY OFF!
Drivers are charged higher insurance premiums in accordance with their driving records. Drivers who are convicted of moving violations and/or cause accidents pay higher premiums at rates set forth by the North Carolina Safe Driver Incentive Plan (SDIP).
