Traffic Attorneys Serving Alamance County

Speeding, DWI, DUI

Traffic violations may seem like unimportant nuisances—and certainly nothing you would need an attorney for. However, if you are facing prosecution for DUI or DWI, reckless driving, or vehicular manslaughter, you need an attorney who understands the severity these charges can have. Conviction for any one of these offenses can result in loss of your driving privileges, the imposition of substantial fines, hikes in your insurance rates, and jail time.

Do not take chances with traffic tickets because you have convinced yourself it is no big deal. Protect yourself and your future with appropriate legal representation.

If you are facing suspension of your driver’s license, we can help you fight the suspension at the license suspension hearing. We use our knowledge and experience with North Carolina traffic laws to help resolve your situation favorably. In some cases, we will be able to negotiate with the prosecution and receive lesser charges or dismissals. Our traffic ticket lawyers will review your citation for mistakes to see if there is a possibility of eliminating the violation from your record or reducing its severity.

We assist individuals in the Alamance County, North Carolina, area and those who have been pulled over on I-40, I-85, and Highway 54 who are facing fines or suspensions for traffic violations such as the following:

  • Speeding
  • Reckless speeding
  • Tailgating
  • Careless driving
  • Driving with a suspended license
  • Driving without a license
  • Stop sign and stoplight violations
  • DWI charges
  • Failure to yield
  • Failure to stop for a school bus



Wrongful Death

Negligence, Punitive Damages, Products Liability

At Smith Giles, our wrongful death lawsuit attorneys are compassionate and care about what you’ve been through. We have successfully filed lawsuits for wrongful death resulting from electrocution, elevator malfunction, aircraft mishaps, truck collisions, high-speed police chases, motorcycle collisions, and other tragic incidents. We will gently guide you through the complicated legal process and make sure you are treated with the care you deserve.

We can assist you and your family in receiving compensation for the following:

  • Reimbursement for lost wages
  • Unpaid medical bills
  • Property damage that resulted from the accident
  • Services the deceased routinely provided
  • Loss of companionship
  • Punitive damages

Generally, in order to recover in a wrongful death suit, the death must have been the result of negligence and there must have been some type of financial reliance on the deceased. A wrongful death claim is usually only available to immediate family members, such as the surviving spouse and children. Our firm helps families that have suffered a wrongful death from any serious accident, including fatal car accidents, medical malpractice, drunk driving fatalities, and premises liability.
