As the managing partner at Tetterton Law Firm, I practice Criminal and Traffic Law exclusively in Carteret County. This allows me to handle clients’ cases in a timely and effective manner, while working daily with the same prosecutors and law enforcement officers. During law school I interned for the Harnett County District Attorney’s Office, as well as with a private firm in Raleigh. After law school my family and I moved back to our hometown of Morehead City to be closer to our family and for me to start my own practice. My beautiful wife and I have two boys and a yellow lab named Sailor. In my spare time I enjoy Jeep rides, boating, fishing and watching my sons play tee ball and guitar. I have served on several boards including the Carteret County Juvenile Crime Prevention Council. The Beaufort Historical Society and Boy Scouts of America East Carolina Council are organizations in which I take pleasure in volunteering.

Traffic charge
I retained Mr.Tetterton to represent me on a minor traffic charge. Having spent over 40 years in law enforcement and court services in a very large metropolitan area I initially felt confident representing myself but I quickly relied that I would be better served by a lawyer with local knowledge. We had an initial meeting where he explained what he felt were my best options and I retained him for a reasonable fee. He entered a plea on my behalf which reduced my charge to a non moving violation saving me points on my OL. I found Mr. Tetterton and his staff to be to be friendly, reliable and professional. I would recommend his services to anyone needing legal representation in Carteret county with no reservations or hesitation. They offer first class service in my opinion.

The Tetterton Affect
I can honestly say when it comes to Mr.Tetterton his representation always exceeds expectations....I hired him for a few traffic tickets and I seem to get better outcomes each time. Furthermore if there is ever a unresolved problem, he makes it his business to rectify if your looking for great service and representation in law choose him!

Great Traffic Attorney
Great experience. Like many people, I was driving down to the outer banks and was speeding a little and received a hefty ticket. Josh was very professional, responsive, and helpful. Him and his wife made the whole process seamless.

Excellent performance by Joshua Tetterton
I contacted Titterton by telephone. The receptionist put Joshua on the call and he asked several pertinent questions. We arrived at a defense plan which Joshua executed without further interaction with me. I found this process to be worth the fee in every way - e.g., I did not have to find a courthouse and wait in line and wonder how to approach the D.A.

Prompt, courteous, professional
I garnered a speeding ticket in eastern NC. Mr Tetterton represented me and got it reduced to an improper equipment. He even answered the phone after the hours listed on his firm's mailing! Highly recommended.

Kept Me Informed
My son got a traffic ticket. Mr. Tetterton sent emails throughout the process of clearing it up. I never had to call and check on things. This whole process went smoothly.

Great traffic lawyer!
Mr. Tetterton handled my fiancé's traffic ticket for speeding in a school zone. He was very efficient and his staff is great. Thank you Mr. Tetterton, for your services and for making this process a smooth one. I highly recommend this lawyer to anyone in search of criminal or traffic lawyer.
