Beware: Paying The Ticket Is Rarely A Good Choice

If you simply pay your traffic ticket, you are pleading guilty as charged. This will lead to real consequences on your driving record and your insurance rates. You can expect your insurance premiums to likely increase by hundreds of dollars a year for several years in a row. This, of course, is in addition to the actual fine associated with the ticket.

On the other hand, hiring an attorney to fight the ticket is a one-time cost that can save you a very considerable amount in the long run.

At The Law Offices of Karen D. Gerber in Winston-Salem, we represent people throughout North Carolina as well as out-of-state visitors who are simply passing through. Let our attorney put more than a decade of experience to work on your behalf, helping you resolve traffic violations such as:

  • Speeding
  • Drunk driving/DUI/DWI
  • Driving with an open container of alcohol
  • Running a red light or stop sign
  • Reckless driving
  • Driving with a revoked license
  • Hit-and-run accidents
  • Other moving violations or citations

In many cases, attorney Karen D. Gerber can appear in court on your behalf, so you don't have to worry about missing work or having to face the judge.

Remember, Your Lawyer Is The Only One On Your Side

Did you know that if you are pulled over on suspicion of drunk driving and take a field sobriety test, the odds are already stacked against you? These tests are designed to produce a conviction — not to prove that you are sober. Don't voluntarily give the police an advantage. Instead, exercise your right to remain silent, and then call an attorney right away. Retaining a lawyer is the very best way to protect your rights.
