Daniel "Dan" Hatley opened the Law Office of Daniel A. Hatley in April of 2009 and has been helping drivers navigate the tangled web of traffic law ever since. Mr. Hatley is a consummate negotiator and advocate, whether working in the Courts or behind the scenes in one of his many non-profit endeavors. As a member of the Millennial Generation, Dan understood intuitively the advantages that technology could bring to the provision of legal services. As a native of the State of North Carolina, he also understood that people highly value honest and diligent service. This law office is a marriage of those two ideas - efficiency and quality. Outside of the office, Mr. Hatley serves on the Board of Directors at Extraordinary Ventures, Inc. and on the Human Rights Committee of the Autism Society of North Carolina. In his private life, Mr. Hatley and his family reside in Chapel Hill and can regularly be found on Franklin St.

$99:00 Well worth it
Just not having to wait outside in line for thirty minutes (I’m handicapped) and being able to enjoy my day with my granddaughter instead of court was a benefit He was able to get me prayer for judgement which will save me many insurance points which means a lot of money.

The Hatley Law Firm
I would highly recommend this firm. They handled my case very professionally, most of all reasonably priced. They provided the status on their actions and what the case resolution could be. I contacted them at the time when my case was almost pending. No problem! I’m very satisfied and would recommend his firm to family and friends!

Simple Excellence
Best Law Firm I have ever used. I was shocked and pleased by this firm's ability to deal with my case intuitively, electronically, and precisely. I would recommend this firm enthusiastically for all of your legal needs. Even though I live in NYC, I wish I could have them on my side next time I needed legal help.

Excellent service all online!
I’m not exactly sure what caught my eye from all the different solicitations I received after obtaining a speeding ticket in NC. I was super unhappy about how NC handles it’s out of state driver’s speeding tickets. However, I chose correctly with this firm. A reasonable rate and a few informative emails and my offense was reduced from 89/70 to a non-moving violation with a fine you would normally expect to see if you went to court in your hometown. I didn’t have to show and my ‘day in court’ was handled as best as I had hoped for. Mr Pittman was my attorney. Professional, courteous and positive. I had no current points and was only asked to pay for/obtain a three year copy of my driving record. I hope everyone finds this helpful.

Speeding
I contacted Hatley Law Office to represent me in the speeding case. They corresponded me with phone and email regularly. They were very polite and dedicated people. The fee they charged was really cheaper than many other law offices said they would charge if I hired them. I am happy with the outcome. I will try my best to drive carefully and avoid traffic tickets, but will hire them if such a situation occurs again. I will recommend my friends too.

Still Cant Believe Their Success!
I cant say enough great things about this law firm. I received a speeding ticket along with a DWLR a month ago. Not realizing i had MULTIPLE old citaitons that had gone unsettled on my driving record, from multiple counties, as far back as 2008 (9 years!). I was overwhelmed with the thought of what it would take to get everything reconciled and restore my license, especially within time to take care of the current charge. I pulled myself together and determined, i needed help, but where to turn? I began to research various law firms, along with all the ads that came in my mailbox. I figured if i could just find someone who could cover multiple counties. I found itcketlaw.com and read some reviews and decided to check them out. It was an evening when i submitted the contact form but received a call the next morning. i spoke with one of the administrative supports, and by noon, i had received a plan of action from the lawyer. Throughout the entire process, the Business Mgr, Tom, kept in consistent communication. I received email updates, directives, and just did what they said. In only a month, all my cases have been settled and Im on my way to the DMV to reinstate my license. Mind you their fees was well below what I anticipated and they offered me a payment plan with automatic payment plan. Oh yeah, and I never missed a day of work or had to step into a court room. I havent even met them! They are like angels in disguise. This is an amazing firm that is fully equipped to handle law matters in the 21st century. Dont delay, call them today!

Mr. Hayley clearly explained everything I needed to do and had it to me on time. When I went to talk to him in person he was very nice and explained my case well. He also did a very good job of solving my case.

Not so scary after all
My lawyer and his team went above and beyond for me. They exceeded even what they told me they thought they would be able to do for me. I received a rather steep speeding ticket, they were convinced they could reduce it to maybe 14 miles over the limit. My ticket was reduced all the way to just 9 miles over the limit. Outstanding! This was my first major offense in driving and first time ever in having a need for a lawyer. Dan Hatley and his team could not have made this an easier experience. Everyone I dealt with was very pleasant and understanding, and extremely helpful. Something I was so very afraid and upset about actually left me feeling very taken care of, and I was able to walk away from this experience with a smile. Could not recommend this law firm more highly. Thank you so much for everything!

Great Job
Mr. Hatley did a wonderful job handling my case. When I first emailed the law office, I was contacted promptly in terms of what he would do for my case. He showed up to court for me, and reduced my case from 15 over to improper equipment. This lowered my costs from over $1,600 to just $250 and was notified quickly of outcome of my case. Any questions I had during the course of my time with Hatley were answered promptly and respectfully. If I every get another speeding ticket (hopefully I will not), then I will definitely use this law firm again!

Great Communication Superiour Outcome
My mailbox was overloaded with offers from attorneys to handle my traffic incident. However, one stood out from the rest. Daniel Hatley's letter spoke to me like I was an adult making an informed decision and not a felon running from the law. The letter was clear, concise, and free of any ambiguities. I was invited to contact him back by email with further questions. I am glad I did. Daniel Hatley resolved my legal situation with the great professionalism and in a manner that exceeded my expectations.
