Many people traveling from Florida or Atlanta to points North on the East Coast travel on I-85. Because the flow of traffic is typically well above the limit, and because the speed limit changes frequently after entry into North Carolina, there is a high volume of traffic stops, especially for speeding. There one of the Counties in North Carolina where the numbers are particularly high is in Gaston County. While there are several towns in the County, Gastonia is the County seat and the location of the courthouse.
We frequently have requests from the out-of-state drivers to handle tickets in Gastonia because often those tickets have a mandatory court appearance. The only way to avoid the court appearance is to have a lawyer appear on your behalf. For that reason a traffic ticket attorney at Rosensteel Fleishman usually deals with these matters without the client’s presence in court. Although each case is individual and the specific speed alleged on the speeding citation is important, we can often secure a result that does not involve driver’s license or insurance points. This can be especially valuable for speeding ticket clients from out of state who need a non-moving violation to avoid a substantial insurance increase.
While there are some severe speeding charges that require the appearance of the client, for the most part we can negotiate without the client having to go to the time and expense of travelling back to Gastonia to attend traffic court. At Rosensteel Fleishman we understand that the typical client would like to resolve the issue without spending more time than necessary. We gear our practice with the convenience of the client in mind. Typically after an initial phone consultation we are able to e-mail the client our standard speeding ticket document package for Gaston County. We typically predict a fine and court cost and the client can send us just one piece of correspondence. This streamlined system then allows us to resolve the matter (often before the actual court date) with a minimum of stress for the client.
Hiring an attorney can be a confusing task. There are many law firms who will handle a speeding ticket, but we encourage you to call our office and speak with our professional staff to become more comfortable with the process.
For our clients’ convenience we accept payment over the phone with Visa or MasterCard. Depending on the traffic violation, you may be able to have your conference with us over the phone and we may be able to file the appropriate paperwork to avoid your personal appearance in court.
