Traffic Lawyer – Myrtle Beach, SC
You may be asking yourself… Do I even need an attorney for a traffic ticket?
Yes! You may not think that you need an attorney for a traffic or speeding ticket that you received in Horry County, Conway, or Myrtle Beach, SC.
The truth is, many people hire traffic ticket lawyers to handle a wide variety of traffic offenses.
They want to avoid harsh penalties and protect their freedom to drive and avoid insurance rate increases. This is especially true of people who have a commercial driver’s license.
If you have a commercial driver’s license and have received a ticket for a traffic violation, you may have your CDL suspended or permanently revoked. As a result, you could be in danger of losing your job. Even if you don’t lose your CDL, points against your license could make it difficult to find a job in the future.
Why would I hire an attorney to handle my traffic violation if I can just pay the fine?
You can of course always pay the fine, but in South Carolina, a traffic violation or speeding ticket can result in steep penalties like heavy fines, drastic increases in your insurance rates, and even the loss of your driver’s license!
All of these penalties can affect your life moving forward, and having an attorney by your side could help reduce the stress and negative outcome of your traffic violation!
