Background on Traffic Cases

Have a traffic ticket? Please call me now at 919-683-2175  for a free consultation. 

Some background information about traffic cases:

Most tickets will cause your insurance to go up. The amount of the increase depends on the ticket. For example, driving 68 miles per hour in a 55 mph zone would result in two insurance points, which would mean a 45% increase.   Driving 78 mph in a 65 mph zone is more serious, and would result in four points, and in an increase of 80%. Usually, I can get these types of charges reduced so that your insurance does not go up as much or not at all.

Some tickets will cause your license to be suspended unless they are reduced. The most common type of suspension occurs when both of these things are true: You are driving over 55 miles per hour and, at the same time your speed is more than 15 miles per hour over the limit. For example, a charge of 74 miles per hour in a 55 mile per hour zone would result in a thirty-day suspension. Again, I usually can get these cases reduced to prevent the suspension.

About ken

I've been practicing law in Durham, NC for 30 years now. I focus on traffic cases, personal injury and workers compensation. I graduated from Wake Forest University in 1980 with a BA in political science. I went to Mercer University for law school, graduating in 1983. I began practicing in Durham the next year, and I have been here ever since.

Initially, I did just about any kind of case that came in the door. However, it's hard to get good at any area if you're trying to do them all. So, I settled on personal injury, workers compensation and traffic cases.

I am married and have two sons (ages 20 and 16). My wife is a physical therapist. My older son is a college sophomore and my younger is a high school sophomore. We also have three pets -- a Havanese dog named Blitzen, a tabby calico cat named Donner, and a black cat named Olive. (I'll let you figure out those names. . . )

I hope to hear from you!
