First Traffic Ticket? Attorneys Kristi Haddock and Wiley Nickel Can Help.


If you have received your first traffic ticket ever in either Wake or Chatham county in North Carolina, don’t panic – getting pulled over happens to the best of us. Many traffic tickets can be taken care of quickly by an attorney without you ever having to appear in court.

When you were pulled over and issued a traffic citation, the officer may have told you when you need to appear in court. If he did not, you can find this date on the ticket. You or your attorney MUST appear for this court date. On this court date, you or your attorney will speak with the assistant district attorney about your options. You may have the option to have the charges reduced or even dismissed, but often you must know what to ask for. It may be much easier to let an attorney do this for you.

Attorneys Wiley Nickel and Kristi Haddock can go to your court date for you so you don’t have to miss work or drive to Pittsboro, NC or Raleigh, NC. Call The Law Office of Wiley Nickel at (919) 585-1486 to speak to an attorney about how we can help you get the best result. This could include lower fines, avoiding points on your license, and not having your car insurance rates increase
