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.SC Speeding Ticket Attorney in Lexington, Myrtle Beach, and Columbia
