Being convicted of a traffic offense could result in jail time, loss of driving privileges, insurance and driver license points, supervised probation and high fines. Whether you’re facing a speeding infraction or a criminal allegation arising from a vehicle accident, you need a skillful attorney to outline your options based on the applicable criminal law and motor vehicle regulations. At Coalter Law, PLLC in Greensboro, we are defense attorneys who have considerable experience handling a full range of cases alleging driving-related misconduct.

Starting with a free initial consultation, we handle each aspect of traffic offense proceedings for Greensboro-area residents. In most instances, you will not have to appear in court. We will resolve the case for you and send you further instructions in the mail such as where to pay fine or court costs. In some instances, if you provide us with the necessary compliance information, your charge could be dismissed altogether.
In addition to being ticketed for routine traffic infractions, drivers can face misdemeanor, and even felony, allegations if potentially dangerous road conduct is involved. Many types of behavior fall under the reckless driving law, which prohibits operating a vehicle carelessly in willful disregard of others’ safety. An effective argument can sometimes demonstrate that the road behavior was justified based on the circumstances. Criminal charges can also include leaving the scene of an accident or causing a death-by-vehicle. Our established criminal defense firm also vigorously defends clients who are accused of driving while intoxicated or under the influence of drugs.
