Traffic and DWI
Our Criminal and Traffic Defense Section is headed by a former Assistant District Attorney. Whether you received a minor traffic ticket or are facing a serious felony charge, Mulligan Attorneys will stand up for you and defend your interests with an aggressive and individually tailored approach to your case.
A conviction in traffic court can result in license points and insurance points, which can increase your insurance premiums. North Carolina’s traffic laws are tough and, on top of that, laws are often updated and changed. At Mulligan Attorneys, we want to put our knowledge and experience to work for you. We usually resolve your traffic case, including speeding tickets, without your presence in court. We always take the time to examine your driving record so the results in your case will be best suited to your individual circumstances.
North Carolina has some of the toughest DWI laws in the nation. Even a first offense can result in serious consequences, including hefty fines, loss of license, community service, and in extreme circumstances, even jail time. If you have had a prior DWI conviction, jail time is probably mandatory if you are convicted again. We know what is at stake and we have the experience and commitment to guide you through the process, both in the courtroom and out of it. In addition to challenging the State’s evidence at trial, our attorneys and staff will help you navigate the numerous DMV requirements that accompany a DWI charge. Finally, if your vehicle was seized, we may be able to recover it for you.
