Many people have been told that there is nothing they can do to fight a traffic ticket, that they should "just pay the fine" and be done with it. But in reality, paying the fine is the same as admitting guilt, and that can have many unintended consequences. Your auto insurance rates could greatly increase, and a record of the violation will remain on your driver's record for a period of time. Those with serious infractions or a history of citations could even have their licenses suspended.
Call Bell Law Firm before you pay the fine. Hiram Bell, our Jacksonville traffic violation lawyer may be able to represent you and prevent negative consequences. Mr. Bell has more than 30 years of experience representing clients in North Carolina and a large number of drivers who were from other states but were cited while driving here.

- Expired inspections
- Expired tags
- Driving without insurance
- Failure to stop at a red light or stop sign

Your court appearance is not required in many traffic cases. Many traffic cases can be handled by your attorney without the need for you to go to court. Mr. Bell attends hearings on behalf of clients in Jacksonville. This way, clients do not have to rearrange their work schedules to attend.
