On my way home from NC to CT in June 2013, I was pulled over in Greensboro and charged with 80 mph in a 60 mph zone, which comes with a mandatory court appearance. Unable to return to NC to answer to it, I paid The Law Office of Randall Howell a more-than-reasonable flat fee to appear for me and negotiate the charge. I got a letter from them today that they got it reduced to an improper equipment charge (which I'm sure may not be possible in all cases, depending on the circumstances of the offense and the defendant's record). I did have to contact them myself for updates, but they always responded the same day. Most of the correspondence was done by e-mail, which is great if you have a busy schedule, but they are easily contacted by phone. Yes, I will be paying plenty to the court in fees, but to keep my clear driving and criminal record, I'll take it! I will recommend him to my friends back in NC.
