Keep Ticket Points off your License and Insurance
A South Carolina speeding ticket is considered a criminal offense, and paying a speeding ticket in SC is pleading guilty to the traffic offense. Most moving violations in South Carolina have points that will be assessed on your driving record. Even a minor speeding ticket can have serious consequences to your driving record and insurance premiums. These points could cause your license to be suspended and will likely lead to increased insurance premium. For South Carolina Drivers, as few as 12 points will cause your license to be suspended. For out of state drivers, South Carolina will report your ticket to your home state DMV, which will assess points on your home state license. Points will typically cause your insurance rates to increase for a 2-3 year period, and a 4 point ticket may raise your rate on average 90%, depending on which state you are licensed. A skilled South Carolina traffic ticket lawyer, can help save you money by keeping points off your license and insurance.

We represent drivers with SC speeding tickets and traffic tickets throughout South Carolina including the following highly active counties and cities: York County Traffic tickets, Rock Hill Traffic Violations, Ridgeland Speeding Tickets, Society Hill Speeding Tickets, Yemassee traffic tickets, and Hardeeville Traffic citations.
Speeding Ticket in South Carolina?
Hopefully you will never need this information, but if you are visiting our site then you or someone you know likely has been pulled over and given a South Carolina uniform traffic citation. The most important thing you can do if you are pulled over is be polite to the officer even if he does give you a ticket. Do not say anything incriminating about your traffic ticket or about yourself. If you have an attitude and tell the officer that you will see him in court, you WILL see him in court. Officers prosecute their own tickets in South Carolina. As a former police officer, Attorney Peter Nosal knows first hand that officers remember drivers who are jerks. Our job as your lawyer is to get the Officer on your side when we appear before the Judge, in order to get your ticket dismissed, reduced, or changed to a 0-point offense. Remember that even if you believe you were wrongfully accused, remaining courteous and respectful will help us beat your ticket.
FREE Consultation. . . Learn the Facts About Your Case
If you are given a citation, don’t pay the speeding ticket without knowing the affects on your license and insurance. Paying the traffic fine is pleading guilty. You will be given a court date, time, and location on your ticket. If you wait until after the court date to contact us, in many circumstances it is too late. If you fail to appear or pay the fine, you will be convicted in your absence, so contact a defense lawyer experienced in fighting traffic violations for a FREE consultation BEFORE your Court Date. Unlike some other states, it is extremely difficult to get traffic citations reopened after they have been processed in South Carolina. While we can still help in these circumstances, it is a more costly and time consuming to pull the traffic ticket back and resolve the issue.
Former Police Officer On Your Side
South Carolina traffic ticket Attorney Peter J. Nosal is a former police officer who has extensive experience with traffic tickets, speeding tickets, and drunk driving related offenses and now uses the knowledge and insight gained as an officer to defend clients charged with speeding tickets, traffic tickets, open container, and DUIs in South Carolina. In South Carolina the police officers prosecute their own traffic tickets, and Mr. Nosal’s previous experience in traffic-related offenses offers an invaluable advantage to get our clients’ tickets dismissed, reduced, or changed to 0-point violations.
