Q: How can I get a continuance for a speeding ticket in North Carolina? The court date is this Tuesday, cant get off work.
A: When you have transmission problems - you hire a mechanic. When you have a traffic ticket - you hire a traffic attorney. If your address is correct on your ticket, you likely got a crap ton of letters from traffic attorneys. You do not need F. Lee Bailey for a traffic ticket so just pick the cheapest one and roll with that. Easy peasy problem solved.
A: Legal counsel may be the easiest way to proceed, as in many traffic citations, a NC Traffic Attorney may be able to appear on your behalf.
Best bet, retain an experienced attorney in Forsyth County ASAP. Clark Dummit practices up there. Super nice fellow. Please say “hey” if you speak to him:
