Traffic Law

Speeding & Moving Violations

A simple traffic ticket can have expensive consequences if handled without the assistance of an experienced traffic lawyer. Hopper Cummings has the experience and local representation to save you time and money. 


If you pay your ticket online or go to court without an attorney, you could accumulate license points and insurance points. Just one insurance point can increase the cost of your automobile insurance by 30%.

We will gather information about your case, advise you on your legal options, and represent you in court so the outcome of your case has the least possible impact on your driving record and insurance payments. Finally, we will save you time. In most traffic cases, our clients never have to come to court at all.

License Restoration

Driving is an important privilege, impacting your work, family and social life. We will work to restore your license and get you driving again as quickly as possible.

Criminal Defense

Hopper Cummings represents clients in criminal matters in Chatham County at Superior and District Court. If you have been charged with a crime, remember you have the right to remain silent and you have the right to an attorney. It is important to consult with an attorney as early as possible in your criminal matter. We are able to achieve the best outcomes for our clients when we are involved in your case from the beginning.

Most misdemeanor criminal cases are heard in District Court. Misdemeanors include simple assault, assault on a female, driving while license revoked, driving while impaired, shoplifting, larceny under $1,000.00, trespassing, possession of drug paraphernalia, and low-level drug offenses. Most misdemeanor punishments include a short active sentence or a suspended sentence with probation.

Most felony criminal cases are heard in Superior Court. Felonies include murder, assault, arson, larceny over $1,000.00, kidnapping, burglary, robbery, rape, and sexual offenses. Felony punishments are generally more severe than misdemeanor punishments.
