Johnston County Law Firm

While the American legal system carries quite a bit of fairness and equality for all people facing charges, it is still very intimidating, especially to those who are new to the legal process or have been bitten by it in the past. That’s why you need competent legal representation any time you’re involved with the legal system, never take the risk of going in alone, you may accidentally incriminate yourself or worse! One thing that we agree with is that before a sentencing a judge will usually ask the defendant questions pertaining to the quality of their defense team and if they’re happy with it. Don’t you dare try to go to court without your attorney present!

Traffic Law

While most individuals are not criminals or bad people, we find traffic law to be one of the most busy forms of law because so many people make casual errors on the roadway. First and foremost the easiest thing you can do to avoid getting pulled over is making sure all light and indicators on your car are working, your registration is up to date, and you’re following all the rules of the road. Follow the speed limit, drive with the safety of yourself and others in mind, and keep a clear head on the road. You will want to ensure you are never driving while under the influence of alcohol or drugs, as these not only put you at risk, but also endanger everyone else on the road. At Mast Law Firm, our traffic ticket law firm and attorneys can help protect you and in many instances, minimize any points that may be added to your Driving Record and Insurance Record. In North Carolina, your Driver’s License record typically allows you to accumulate up to twelve (12) points in a three (3) year period before a revocation, but a different set of points are associated with Insurance regulations which is associated with certain percentages in increases in your insurance. You will most likely see an insurance cost jump after an incident on the road. Your attorney in Smithfield will help to lessen the charges.

Family Law

Family law is unfortunately becoming even more increasingly common. These days about half of American marriages end in divorce, so family law is practiced far and wide. Family law may include everything from divorce to child custody battles, child support, family member death and estates, plus much more. If you are trying to adopt a child, you’ll want a skilled family law attorney with you to assist along the way and to ensure all proper documents are signed.

Hiring an Attorney

If you lose your case and didn’t have an attorney present, you will really regret it! Even if the police are just asking you questions, you certainly have the right to stay silent until your lawyer arrives. Anything you say can and will be used against you in court, your lawyer will help you prevent incriminating yourself or giving away valuable information. Remember that the bond between client and lawyer is sacred, so you can feel safe talking to your attorney from Lawyers Smithfield NC.
