Alamance County Speeding Ticket Lawyer


Hi.  My name is Eb Rossi, and I’ve been representing people who get speeding tickets in Alamance County District Court for the past 15 years.  During that time I have personally represented over 9,000 motorists with just one goal: to reduce or eliminate the imposition of insurance points. In fact, that goal is so important that we prominently state it in every contract.

If you’ve received a speeding ticket in Alamance County you have to know that we historically been one of the harder counties in the piedmont triad in which to resolve a speeding ticket. This was by design. While the counties that surrounded us routinely gave people an opportunity to plead to non moving violations (improper equipment), a former District Attorney stated his policy something like this, “the only thing improper is their right foot.” The quote may be a little off, but the intended sentiment is not. He took the position that people who speed should pay higher insurance rates. Accordingly, he was not going to let people plead to improper equipment.

Things have now changed in the county, but most of  our District Court Judges still continue to limit their own discretion, refusing to grant a pjc (another form of relief) in cases where the officer alleges that the motorist was speeding more than 20 miles per hour over the speed limit. (The law actually allows judges to grant that relief in cases up to 25 miles per hour over the speed limit)

What this all means is that you have to know our forum.  Be careful. Not knowing your forum means you may not get the best deal.  Finally, you should also bear in mind that neither the D.A. nor the judge can give you legal advice.

Alamance County Speeding Tickets | Improper Equipment

From time to time we get a call from someone who got a speeding ticket in Alamance County and really had something wrong with their speedometer. Many times they will already have had the problem repaired. Other times they are thinking about it but are not sure what to do.

In 2004 the legislature amended the speeding statute to provide that the charge of improper equipment, i.e. broken speedometer, was a lesser included offense of the charge of speeding. This was intended to make it easier to plea bargain a speeding charge, which carries insurance points, to a charge of improper equipment, which carries no insurance points. However, in Alamance County, for a long time the amendment to the law had very little practical effect. The District Attorney’s speeding ticket policy in Alamance County does not permit for negotiated pleas of improper equipment when the original charge is speeding.

Recently, there’s been a change to the District Attorney’s policy concerning improper equipment. It is now possible to have your charge amended to improper equipment in some circumstances.

So, if you’re gotten a speeding ticket in Alamance County and are concerned about insurance points, or want to learn more about the lesser included offense of improper equipment, please give us a call at (336) 570-1923. Our office is just 3 minutes from the court house and we have been representing motorists in Alamance County for the last 15 years.

 

Alamance County DWI Tickets

If you received a DWI ticket in Alamance County, you have most likely had your license taken by the arresting officer. Here’s a list of few things that may be helpful to you in the short run:

  1. If your license was taken,  it was only taken for 30 days. After the 30 days have passed you can go to the cashier in clerk’s office and pay a $100 civil revocation fee. If you pay this fee, and you had a valid license at the time of your arrest, you will get your license returned to you by the cashier.
  2. If you can’t wait 30 days to get your license, the law allows for a limited driving privilege after 10 days. The court fee for this privilege is $100.
  3. This privilege is only valid until the 30 have above have run, so in the best case scenario it is only covering you for the last 20 days of the 30 revocation.
  4. In order to get a limited driving privilege you will need proof of insurance in the form of a “DL 123.” Ask your insurance agent to provide this to you. In addition, you will also need to obtain an alcohol assessment. Without the assessment and DL 123 the judge cannot grant the privilege.

The above list will help you in the short run. In the long  run you should seriously consider seeking the advice of an experienced DWI lawyer. Don’t fool yourself into thinking that because you paid a low bond to get released or because a DWI is only a misdemeanor, it’s not serious. That’s just simply not the case. The maximum sentence on a DWI ticket is 3 years. Moreover, a conviction will result in 12 insurance points or a 340% auto insurance increase.

If you’ve received a DWI ticket in Alamance County, call me at (336) 570-1923 for a free no obligation consultation.  Our office is just three minutes from the court house, and we accept Visa and MasterCard for your convenience.

Alamance County Traffic Ticket Lawyer

Eb Rossi

If you’ve received a traffic ticket in Alamance County, chances are you have gotten a large number of letters from lawyers who want your business. In addition, you may also have noticed that there is a price on the ticket and the officer who wrote you the traffic ticket may have even told you that you can just pay the ticket off.  So the question in your mind may be do I even need an attorney to handle this traffic ticket?

The short answer is maybe. Let’s take the example of someone who has gotten a ticket for speeding 80 in a 65. There likely is a price on the ticket and you may have even been told that you can conveniently pay the traffic ticket on line. Sounds simple right? Wrong! If you paid this speeding ticket off you would get 4 insurance points, the state’s payment processor would make more money, and your NC auto insurance rates would go up by 80%. Moreover, this increase would remain in effect for 3 years.

Does that mean that you need an attorney for any traffic ticket that you receive in Alamance County? No. The truth of the matter is that it depends on your driving record and what kind of traffic ticket you received.

To be honest, there are times that we will tell a potential client to simply pay off the ticket. That’s because after speaking with them and reviewing the ticket, we’ve determined that the ticket will not have a negative impact on the driver and it’s more cost effective for them not to hire an attorney.

If you’ve received a traffic ticket in Alamance County and are unsure whether this ticket will trigger insurance points, give us a call at (336) 570-1923. We’ve served over 9,000 clients with traffic tickets over the last 10 years, and we would love to serve you.
