I received a ticket for going 56 in a 35. I know that is substantial, and I should have never been going that fast. I have no excuse, I just had a bad day at work, and wanted to get home. I haven't had an infraction on my record since I was 21, in 1999 when i got a level 5 DWI. i have no points on my license right now, and I was wondering what a lawyer could do to help with my situation? Your response is greatly appreciated!
Just hire an attorney and let them handle the ticket.

An experienced local lawyer will know what is possible in Gastonia. It may be possible to negotiate a reduced speed, which will save money in insurance over the next three years. It may be possible to resolve the case with a Prayer for Judgment Continued, which will prevent an insurance increase. It may be possible to plead to a non-moving violation which will also protect you. In some cases, it's possible to get charges, even serious ones dismissed. Having a lawyer is like having a native guide. A good lawyer will know, not only the law, but the people in your county who practice it and what they are likely to do in different situations. Hiring a lawyer in your situation will likely save you money in the long and possibly the short run. I highly recommend it!
Hire a local attorney. He/She might be able to get you a non-moving violation or a speed reduction. This would save you a lot of money over the next three years in insurance premiums. Also if you plead guilty as charged you will lose your license for up to one year.

There are no guarantees that a lawyer can do anything, only the guarantee that hiring a lawyer gives you the best chance of getting the best result possible. Depending on the unique facts of your case, that could be anything from a complete dismissal to getting you a better sentence than you would've without an attorney.
