I was in the area over the weekend and got on the interstate leading from Cary to Raleigh. I believe this is 440 or "1". Anyways, I was keeping up with the flow of traffic thinking the speed limit for most interstates is 65 or 70. I was in a lane that was ending and accelerated to merge over. I ended up getting pulled over for an 80 in a 55. (sounds pretty bad!) I was admittedly pretty dumbfounded that the speed limit on this road was 55. I don't even recall seeing a sign from the exit I got on the interstate to when I was pulled over. (probably less than a couple miles) Excuses aside, does anyone have a suggestion for a good traffic attorney in Raleigh? I live 8+ hours away and do not want to make the trip back if not totally necessary. Also, the trooper said I should be getting a lot of mail from lawyers in the next few weeks and going that route was probably a better choice considering I don't live in the area. Obviously some lawyers will be better than others. This is my first offense in Raleigh and my first since I began driving 10 years ago. Not looking for sympathy or people telling me to slow down. I was driving on the same stretch on Tuesday and seemed to be causing more of a danger at 55 w/ people flying past me.

Normally after a traffic stop, you will get bombarded with traffic attorney's in the mail. They will start coming within a week's time as I believe that is how I believe many of these attorney's get their business. (I know this because that is what happened to me). I just picked one and they took care of it. Whatever you do, just don't pay the fine.

I just used Lawrence J Kissling III PLLC for a traffic ticket and was very happy with him. He specializes in Wake County traffic tickets. I did get bombarded with offers, and spent a couple of hours looking into them. He seemed to be one of the more reputable ones of the bunch, but that was just my opinion I guess. Lawrence spent a lot of time on the phone with me talking through the different options and such. He's been doing traffic law in the area for a lot of years, so knows it well. In the end, once we decided the best course of action, he handled the whole thing and I just gave him my payment info. I think he was also one of the less expensive of the ones that I considered reputable. http://www.kisslinglaw.com/

I got a 72 in a 55 on the 4th of July last year, used the attorney that is just inside the belt line on Glenwood (same turn in as the Beckanna)... I can't remember what the name of the firm is... but when I pulled my driving record this summer there is no mention of any ticket last year. Must have been a golfing buddy of the judge...
