    Your best bet is to hire an attorney in the county where you were cited for driving after consuming under 21. If there is a problem in the file, this attorney can help to fix it.

  • My son rec'd an underage drinking ticket. What might he expect in court, and what are the benefits of obtaining an attorney

    He was respectful of the policemen (undercover) and took responsibility for his actions.

    Zachary’s Answer

    Hiring an attorney can insure that the case is handled right the first time. All too often, I will have appointments scheduled with good folks who relied on bad advice and represented themselves without fully understanding the consequences of their actions. If you hire an attorney, your son will be prepared and you can rest assured that the case will be handled right the first time. Best of luck!

    Zachary’s Answer

    If you have hired an attorney to represent you, you should schedule an appointment with your attorney and discuss this issue. If your attorney knows that you are considering transferring to another school, he or she may change the manner in which your case is handled. Always keep your counsel fully informed of everything that is going on in your life.

    Always be honest. If you explain to potential employers that you have been charged, but not convicted, it may help with the hiring process. Your first course of action needs to be retaining an attorney in Gastonia to fight for you. Best of luck!

    Zachary’s Answer

    It is not uncommon in North Carolina for a case to be continued for the State to produce blood results from the SBI lab. If you have been representing yourself in Court for the past 2 years, you would be well advised to hire an attorney to help with this matter.

    Zachary’s Answer

    The North Carolina Attorneys who previously answered have given you some very good advice. I would like to add that you need to check your mailbox every day for the notice of revocation from the DMV. Make sure that the DMV has your correct mailing address, as these letters will not be forwarded to another address. You do not want to miss the opportunity to challenge the willful refusal. Best of luck.
