Speeding Tickets

I got a speeding ticket in Myrtle Beach; do I need a lawyer?

Do you care about points on your license or how much you pay in insurance premiums? Do you have a commercial driver’s license (CDL) or drive for a living?

If the answer to any of these questions is yes, then you need a SC speeding ticket attorney who is familiar with the system, who knows the law enforcement agencies and courts, and who knows what potential results will minimize the effect on your license.

How Can a Myrtle Beach Speeding Ticket Lawyer Help?

Depending on the facts of your case, it may be possible to:

  • Get your ticket dismissed;
  • Reduce the ticket and points;
  • Re-write your ticket to a violation that does not carry points; or
  • Try your speeding ticket to a jury in the magistrate or municipal court.

Our affordable fee to handle your speeding ticket reflects the fact that the results you need are often obtained without the necessity of a trial.

To effectively handle a speeding ticket, the attorney must know what can and cannot be accomplished for the client based on which agency wrote the ticket, what court the ticket will be in, what options are available that may not affect the client's driver's license, and what effect any given option will have on the client's driver's license if they are an out-of-state driver.

Will My SC Speeding Ticket Really Go to a Jury Trial?

CDL drivers, airline pilots, and those who would lose their license because of a conviction must fight their charge, taking it to trial if necessary.

In other cases, if the officer does not agree to the results that we are looking for, your case may go to trial, but it’s rare. Officers and courts do not want jury trials in speeding ticket cases if they can avoid it – it’s not worth the court’s time and it would clog up the court’s docket when there are assaults, shoplifting cases, domestic violence, and other magistrate-level cases with alleged victims that are waiting for jury trials.

Mindi and Laura were an amazing team team in helping my son with a traffic violation. There responsiveness from answering my phone call, to being able to pay the invoice online, showing up to court and representing my son for a ticket in less than 24 hours. Not to mention successfully having the ticket dismissed. The process was explained to us clearly each step of the way. This allowed us to prepare for any possible ramifications as well being patient with any questions we may have had. Even if the ticket did not get dismissed the care and attention they showed towards my son's situation made us feel very safe in their good hands for this legal matter. N. Jones
I retained Lacey Thompson & Hiller, defense firm for a difficult domestic violence case. She provided a strategy that won my case. Her legal skills are great, but just as important she's a supportive attorney who truly cares and her advice was spot on. I'll always be thankful. Besides Lacey, all the staff that I worked with at Thompson & Hiller firm were terrific: competent, professional, and personable. I recommend Lacey Thompson to everybody who needs a defense attorney.

Attorney Laura Hiller, assisted me in 2013 by representing my daughter who at the time was only (14) years old in a juvenile criminal case being tried as an adult. The State charged her with murder. The claims at the time were completely shocking to myself and my daughter at the time and I wasn't sure what to do or who I needed to assist me with this. That's when I met Laura, who in all honesty kept me sane and hopeful through the entire process. She was so thorough when it came to gathering all information from all parties involved, aggressive when stepping into the courtroom, and behind the scenes. Most importantly though she was invested in proving my daughters innocence and I will forever be grateful for her and her work. My daughter's case was dismissed! Definitely who you want in your corner, whether the case is big or small. L.P.M.
