Q: Received a ticket but am moving out of state within the week with no way to appear in court. What now?
A: Just hire a traffic attorney in the area where you are to appear in court (this will be listed at the top of the ticket) - easy peasy lemon squeezy. Problem solved and hiring an attorney is way better than paying it off or appearing yourself and bumbling it because you do not know what you are doing. If you don't know any attorneys in the local area just use Google and search for 'traffic ticket attorney in whatever city or county, NC' you are to appear in. For example, Traffic Ticket Attorney Jacksonville NC. You don't need F. Lee Bailey for a traffic ticket so shop around and go with the cheapest quote. There are times when paying more for an attorney is a good idea - a traffic ticket ain't one of them. For routine legal issues like minor traffic tickets, paying more is often - just paying more. Anyone who says otherwise likely just wants to rip you off. Best of luck.
