Traffic Law

Ernest J. Wright is a well versed and seasoned trial lawyer regarding criminal law and traffic defense. Our firm represents clients in the 4th Judicial District of North Carolina (Onslow, Duplin, Jones, and Sampson Counties) for all types of traffic offenses.

Traffic offenses generally cause insurance points to be assessed against you. Once convicted of a traffic offense, the points will increase your insurance premiums for a period of three (3) years. In most cases we will be able to help you keep your license from being suspended by the North Carolina Department of Motor Vehicles. If you are unfamiliar with the Division of Motor Vehicle rules and the North Carolina Department of Insurance policies, it may be beneficial for you to hire our firm.  
For most minor traffic cases, I will work to get the charges dismissed or reduced. In most cases, I can negotiate with the district attorney and the court so that no insurance points or reduced charges (and reduced insurance points) are assessed against you. In addition, with minor traffic offenses you will NOT have to appear in court. I will appear on your behalf which will save you valuable time and money. Minor traffic cases include: Speeding, Fail to Stop for Stop Sign/Flashing Red Light, No Operators License, No Insurance, and No Registration. 
As your DWI defense attorney, we will intensely research and analyze every aspect of your case such as: the reason for the stop, sobriety and breathalyzer tests implemented, and the subsequent arrest. Our goal with DWI cases is to determine if your case is able to be reduced and help you to keep your driving privileges and your insurance rates low.
