North Carolina Licensee with Georgia Speeding Ticket | Georgia Speeding Ticket Lawyer for North Carolina Licensee |

Our Georgia speeding ticket lawyers have significant experience in handling speeding tickets for North Carolina drivers who are cited with a Georgia speeding ticket.  North Carolina law is very harsh on speeding.  North Carolina law will suspend a North Carolina drivers license for a speeding ticket conviction in Georgia or any other state which exceeds 15 miles per hour over the posted speed limit if the person was also driving at a speed in excess of 55 miles per hour at the time of the offense OR if the conviction is for a Georgia speeding ticket that is in excess of 80 miles per hour at the time of the offense.

If you are a North Carolina licensee and receive a speeding ticket or traffic ticket in Georgia you should have an experienced and competent Georgia speeding ticket lawyer review the case.  Often times a North Carolina licensee will pay his or her Georgia speeding ticket over the telephone or through the mail with a Georgia traffic ticket court and then receive notice from the North Carolina DMV by mail that their license is suspended for 6 months due to the Georgia traffic ticket conviction.  Fortunately, our Georgia traffic attorneys are very experienced with this issue and can usually secure reinstatement of your North Carolina drivers license by filing certain motions to reopen your Georgia speeding ticket case.  However, this is a complex legal matter to handle and some Georgia traffic ticket courts will not permit you to reopen your Georgia speeding ticket case.

Our Georgia speeding ticket lawyers can evaluate your situation if you are a North Carolina driver with a Georgia speeding ticket and let you know if we can help!  Often times we can resolve your Georgia speeding ticket so that (1) you do NOT have to go to court and (2) the ticket is reduced so that it is NOT reported to the NC DMV which is the equivalent of a dismissal.

Please be aware that a plea of no contest which is also known as nolo contendere for a Georgia speeding ticket that exceeds 15 mph over the posted limit or is in excess of 80 mph will NOT save a North Carolina driver's license.

For all of these reasons, it is absolutely necessary to have an experienced Georgia traffic ticket attorney review your citation to determine if your North Carolina drivers license is subject to being suspended for a Georgia speeding ticket.  Georgia speeding ticket lawyer Sean J. McIlhinney is focused on handling your Georgia traffic ticket case and is able to give you a complete evaluation and fee quote once he knows the court, charge and your driving history.  Our Georgia traffic ticket attorneys have a tremendous command of Georgia traffic laws and very good relationships with the many Georgia traffic courts that we practice in.  As such, our Georgia traffic lawyers are often times able to negotiate a North Carolina driver's ticket to a very low speed or non reportable offense to save our client's drivers license!  And if we are not able to negotiate a license savings deal, our Georgia traffic lawyers have the knowledge and trial experience to challenge the case at trial.  In fact, founding partner Sean J. McIlhinney was recognized in 2009 in 2 different surveys of attorneys and judges alike throughout the State of Georgia by Georgia Trend magazine and Atlanta magazine as a "Super Lawyer" for his Georgia traffic ticket and DUI work.

Please e-mail or call us today if you are an under North Carolina driver and have a Georgia traffic citation in any Georgia traffic court OR your North Carolina drivers license has already been suspended due to a Georgia speeding ticket conviction.  We can normally help save your drivers license without your having to go to court and will give you a free evaluation and fee quote.
