South Carolina Speeding Ticket Defense Attorney
Traffic tickets are a billion-dollar industry. In South Carolina, the average traffic ticket fine is $120. The average court costs are around $60. Unfortunately, though, the fines are just the beginning of your troubles if you are found guilty of a traffic offense in South Carolina.
Ninety-five percent of drivers who receive traffic citations never go to court. They simply plead guilty, accept responsibility and pay their fine through the mail. This commonly includes those traveling through South Carolina who happened to get a moving violation.
If you have received a traffic ticket, it is definitely in your best interests to consider fighting the charges. Call Lord Law Firm, LLC locally at 803-407-4140 or send us an e-mail today to learn more about how we can help.
Many drivers may not realize that when you receive a citation for speeding, driving with a suspended license or DUI, there are points applied to your driving record and the cost of your insurance premiums will increase. It is also important to remember that if you get enough points, your license can be suspended or even revoked.
I am attorney, Ray Lord, and I provide experienced, knowledgeable and effective traffic defense. I defend local clients as well as those from North Carolina, Georgia, Florida, Alabama and other states who have received traffic tickets or DUI charges while in South Carolina. Often times, clients never have to appear in court – I am able to be there on their behalf and still mount an effective defense against those traffic violations.
Former Police Officer and Prosecutor Now on Your Side
The bulk of my law practice is in traffic ticket and DUI defense. I have been successfully fighting on behalf of my clients since 2001. Prior to that, I was a police officer and a prosecutor, so my experience on both sides of the courtroom gives me a unique insight into the South Carolina traffic laws that many other lawyers simply do not have.
As part of my commitment to my clients I keep the lines of communication open, making sure that my clients are kept informed throughout the process and given copies of all important court filings and paperwork. I also remain easily-accessible for my clients, promptly answering any questions they may have about their case.
