Driving is the linchpin of our lives – it is how we get to work, go to the store, pick up the kids, visit family, and explore the wonderful sites that our state and this country have to offer. However, driving is also a privilege, specifically by statute in North Carolina. It depends on a little state-issued card—a driver’s license. Without a valid driver’s license every trip in your car is crime, a crime that can lead to serious financial and legal consequences. If your license has expired, you could face fines and other penalties. If your license was suspended or revoked, you could face even greater fines, the permanent loss of your license, and even jail time.

At Carver Law Firm, PLLC, we understand the importance of keeping a valid driver’s license. That is why our primary goal in dealing with DWI and traffic cases is to protect our clients’ eligibility to maintain a valid driver’s license, so that our clients can continue to enjoy the connections and stability that are fostered by the privilege of driving. No one wins when our clients are unable to maintain their job, be with their family, or are hindered from utilizing the great resources and opportunities available in this state.

Our second goal at Carver Law Firm is to keep the costs associated with any traffic or driving related incident to a minimum. That not only includes being efficient and effective in our legal representation to maximize the output for any legal fees paid to Carver Law Firm, but also looking towards the long term costs associated with such factors as insurance. In North Carolina (and in many other states) as little as four points added to a license can result in doubling your insurance rates. It is this reason, and other costly incidental fees in North Carolina, that we focus our attention on the whole picture to better meet our clients overall needs.

Whatever the case, we work hard to meet the objectives of our clients. This often means that every defense or plea being sought is customized to you, the specific individual, and your circumstances. Through a thorough exam of our clients’ driving record and our experience in the North Carolina courts, we at the Carver Law Firm find real solutions for real people in real situations.

Whether you’re a holder of a commercial drivers license, and your ability to drive is your actual livelihood, or find yourself at a DMV hearing needing competent representation, or are an out-of-state driver who has a traffic incident in North Carolina, or got involved in a simple fender bender where property damage and insurance companies have entered the fray, we are ready to serve and help you by applying our experience to these difficult situations.

Throughout the process, our clients are guided with unparalleled communication. Carver Law Firm’s ability to succeed is centered on one major philosophy of legal services – Effective legal representation can only exist with effective communication. This means that the prompt and forthright disclosures of information we expect from our clients, is the same prompt and forthright communication we expect from ourselves to our clients. In order to best serve we endeavor at all stages of our clients’ legal processes to keep them informed and aware of each step that we are taking and the reasons behind those steps. It is our belief that doing so is the only way we can make sure that our objectives and our client’s objective are aligned, as well as mitigate the stress inherent in not knowing what is going on in any difficult legal situation.

It is our legal, ethical, and moral obligation as lawyers to serve our clients to the best of our abilities, and at Carver Law Firm, PLLC, our clients always get our best.

  • CDL drivers – if you have one, then you know. Harsher penalties for all traffic violations requires you to get customized solutions to protect your career.
  • DMV hearings require competent representation to get you reinstated.
  • Out of State drivers need custom solutions that cover them not only here in NC, but also in their home state. Reciprocity between the States can cause consequences back home when you get pulled for an offense while on vacation or on business here. We insure our custom solution considers possible penalties back home, and we work to avoid them.
  • Property Damage – fender benders make up a majority of insurance claims. Insurance companies benefit from NC law, you should too.
