Need To Fight A Traffic Violation?

Like many other states, South Carolina applies a traffic enforcement system that assigns points to certain moving violations. If you accumulate 12 or more points against your license in a 12-month period, your license is suspended.

At the Monckton, Hembree & Humphries Law Firm, P.A. in Myrtle Beach, we represent local and out-of-state drivers on the best way to handle the serious traffic violations that can cost you your right to drive. Contact one of our attorneys for a free consultation about the best ways to keep you on the road.

We represent local private and commercial drivers, tourists, students, and motorcyclists in town for one of our Bike Week events. If you live in South Carolina, we can help protect your license by developing and executing an effective strategy for resolving your latest traffic ticket.

If you come from out of state, we can help you resolve your speeding ticket or other moving violation on terms chosen to avoid problems for you in your home state.

Our lawyers advise and represent drivers charged with such traffic violations as the following:

  • Speeding and excess speeding
  • DUI or DWUAC
  • Driving under a suspended license
  • Driving without insurance or proof of insurance
  • Reckless driving
  • Moving violations such as failure to yield, running a stop sign, failure to signal or tailgating

Our familiarity with the different municipal court practices along the Grand Strand gives us a good idea of which violations can be negotiated to a charge that won't endanger your license, and which violations need to be contested on the merits. Sometimes, we can reopen the record of an old traffic offense and challenge its applicability to your current situation.

More frequently, we will try to reduce a traffic violation that will count against your license down to one that won't. At your first meeting with us, we can give you a good idea of our ability to help you under the circumstances of your case. For a free consultation about your legal options in a serious traffic ticket case, contact a knowledgeable attorney at the Monckton, Hembree & Humphries Law Firm, P.A., in Myrtle Beach.
