When Facing Traffic Violations, Call An Experienced Lawyer
There are important benefits when hiring a qualified attorney, instead of representing yourself, if you face any traffic‑related offense in Iredell or Alexander counties. Whatever costs you think you might be saving by representing yourself, if you are convicted, there are other consequences such as a significantly more expensive insurance premium.
Our legal team is led by Joel Harbinson, a much-acclaimed trial lawyer named to the North Carolina “Super Lawyers” list. He will aggressively fight your ticket and protect your rights. When you work with the lawyers at Harbinson Parker, if your appearance in court is not required, they will appear on your behalf to prevent any disruptions in your workday and the potential loss of income.

How A Skillful Lawyer Can Help You In Your Case
In most cases where the evidence against you is overwhelming, the lawyers at Harbinson Parker, will work with the assistant district attorney to lessen your charges. This might decrease any points against your driver’s license, and the cost of your insurance policy will not be affected.
North Carolina also has “prayer for judgment continued” (PJC) for motorists with clean driving records. Appealing for a PJC is another option at our disposal, and you may be eligible if no one in your household has received a PJC in the last three years.
