Durham Traffic Lawyer
Traffic tickets are a hassle, and getting pulled over can really ruin a good day. But the news gets worse: If you have previous violations, a single traffic ticket may be enough to lead to the loss of your driver’s license or a serious increase in your insurance rate.
The good news for North Carolina drivers is that, with the help of an experienced Durham traffic ticket attorney, it may be possible to overcome a ticket or have it reduced to one with lesser penalties and points. At the Law Offices of Kenneth J. Steinberg, we help people avoid the negative consequences of traffic tickets and other moving violations.
Our Durham traffic ticket lawyers represent clients in traffic violation matters, including:
- Speeding tickets
- DWI & License Revocations

- Expired registration and inspection
- Hit and run
- And other traffic violations
Different Counties, Different Outcomes
Courts in and around the Triangle and beyond do not always treat traffic cases the same way. County by county, there can be a quite a difference in the type of outcome that can be obtained. Durham traffic ticket attorney Ken Steinberg is familiar with the courts in our area and how they view traffic cases.
It may be possible to have certain speeding violations reduced to improper equipment or city code violation. This can reduce the points you would have received, and keep your insurance rates down.
For example, a guilty plea for speeding more than 10 mph over the limit in a 55 mph zone may result in 3 points and a 45% increase in your insurance rates. If the charge is reduced to improper equipment, you would not experience any DMV points or insurance increases.
Do Not Pay a Fine Before Talking With Us
Paying a fine without first speaking to an experienced Durham traffic ticket lawyer can have more serious repercussions than just hitting you in the pocketbook. By paying a fine, you are pleading guilty to the charge against you — which can lead to additional DMV and insurance points.
That’s why it’s so important to speak with Ken Steinberg before paying a fine: He may be able to save your driver’s license and hundreds of dollars.
DWI & License Revocations
A conviction for drunk driving has serious consequences. You may face jail time, supervised probation, community service, alcohol assessments and huge fines. Your insurance premiums will increase. A conviction can lead to a license revocation for at least one year or even longer. The reality is crystal clear — if you have been arrested for DWI, you need a capable DWI defense attorney.
The Law Offices of Kenneth J. Steinberg is a criminal defense firm with extensive experience in DWI cases. We will work to defend your rights and preserve your freedom.
Successful DWI Defense is Possible
An arrest for DWI starts two legal processes — a criminal process concerning the charge itself and an administrative process that could lead to the suspension of your driver’s license. Kenneth J. Steinberg will provide strong and aggressive representation in both aspects of your case.
Successful defense of DWI charges is possible. Sometimes, the police do make mistakes. Our firm will review every aspect of your case, paying particular attention to why you were stopped by the police. We will also look at other elements of the arrest, analyze probable cause issues, including the field sobriety tests and blood alcohol concentration tests. Careful analysis of each of these elements can provide the basis for a successful defense of the charge.
Working to Obtain the Best Outcome Possible
In some cases, the prosecutor’s evidence is strong. In these situations, Ken Steinberg will work to mitigate the penalties you face. This can include avoiding jail time and obtaining limited driving privileges. We will do everything we can to get your life back to normal as quickly as possible.
Driving While License Revoked
A conviction for driving with a revoked license can have serious consequences for you. You may lose your license permanently, and pay large fines or spend time in jail. It is important that you seek a skilled lawyer to help you fight you’re driving with license revoked charge.
We can help you fight the charge. Aggressive and tough defense attorney Ken Steinberg has significant experience that allows him to anticipate the prosecutor’s arguments against you. Also, not all counties treat DWLR the same. It is important that you hire an attorney that has worked in various counties in the Triangle area and beyond. Contact the Law Offices of Kenneth J.
