Reason #2: You May Have Defenses to the Traffic Ticket

You could have strong defenses that could result in the traffic ticket being dismissed or reduced to a much less serious charge—even if you are guilty. However, the prosecutor will not look for your potential defenses or consider them seriously if you raise them when negotiating an online reduction of your traffic ticket. This could result in you getting a less favorable deal with more long-term consequences, such as more driver’s license and insurance points.

Reasons #3: You May Have Better Options

The prosecutor represents the State of North Carolina and cannot provide you with legal advice on your traffic ticket case. If you do not hire a skilled lawyer who will look out for your best interests, you will not understand your options for fighting the traffic ticket or whether you are getting the best deal you could get from the prosecutor.
