Elizabeth City Traffic and DWI Attorneys Serving the Outer Banks and Eastern North Carolina

An alcohol-related conviction or a moving traffic violation can have a significant impact on your freedom, employment, finances, and future. There is too much at stake for you to attempt to navigate the system alone. If you are convicted of a moving traffic violation or DWI, you may face fines, license revocation or suspension, community service, points added to your record, driving restrictions, and even jail time.

Our North Carolina traffic offense and DWI attorneys represent individuals facing charges or violations involving:

  • Driving Under the Influence
  • Driving License Suspension
  • Speeding
  • Reckless Driving
  • Fleeing an Officer
  • Driving without Insurance
  • All other moving violations

Our attorneys are well-informed of their clients' rights and will not accept a plea or settlement agreement that comprises the rights to which they are entitled. We will assertively pursue the case to trial and fight for our clients' rights.

It is important for an accused person to act quickly in order to protect his or her rights and legal defenses. Many people make the costly mistake of assuming nothing can be done while facing traffic citations or DWI convictions. At The Twiford Law Firm, we have extensive knowledge of the legal system and work with clients to build solid legal strategies.

Based in Elizabeth City and Moyock, we appear regularly in the first judicial district and represent clients in Camden, Chowan, Currituck, Dare, Gates, Hyde, Pasquotank, Perquimans and Tyrrell counties — and beyond. In certain situations we may be able to represent you without the necessity of your appearance at the court proceeding.
