    Asking for a friend... No really, it's for a friend! haha

    Friend of mine got pulled for 92 in a 55... Yeah, big one. Does anyone have experience with good lawyers in Guilford County, NC? I'm sure it'll be tough to get someone to take that case, but figured I'd ask.

    Yes, I've told him about Waze, and yes, I've told him to bin the Cobra he's got on his windshield!

    I don’t know any lawyers in that county. How’s your friend’s driving record? Oh, anyone will represent him. They are more than happy to take his money. I’m not sure how bad Guilford is on speeders. Places like Raleigh aren’t going to budge with anything +30 or more. Did he just get the speeding or did they give him reckless too?

    Tell him to save his money
    The best attorney in state would be lucky to get +14
    Depending on the county you cant get improper equipment over the +22-25 range

    A PFJ
    Prayer for judgement is the only hope
    No fine no adjudication no points like it Never happened

    But if he gets in any trouble up to 3yrs out i believe

    It all comes back
    Charged with both offenses

    Actually, I got nabbed in Guilford for 92 in a 65 a few years ago. I passed the moving police car (and a bunch of others) that were all going 60 and then briskly moved back over to the left lane right in front of him... And he was mad that I was using Waze...

    I ended up with a 73 in a 65 charge, $300 fine and 27 hours community service (1 hour per mile over PSL), and $300 to the lawyer.
    I used Kent Brown as my lawyer. He handled it all and I stayed home. kentbrownlawyer@gmail.com.

    Your friend will probably get some lawyer advertising. That's where I got mine. Just called each one and talked to them. Picked the one I felt best about. :)

    Yeah, he isn’t going to get improper equipment. But, if he has a clean record and takes the driving class, a lawyer might be able to get it it down enough to not be too bad. Like you said though, some counties are worse than others. .

    3 points once every 5 years can be removed from his NC drivers license

    12 points in 3 years suspends a license vs Florida which requires 12 points in 1yr

    I had 20 points on my Florida license at one time like 15 years ago and was never suspended for points

    It takes 24 points in 36mos to suspend in FL
    Thats alot Fkin points
