If you have recently received a traffic citation in Western North Carolina, Vanhook Law can help limit the impact your traffic citation will have on your insurance and driver’s license. Paying a ticket is the same as an admission of guilt, and it shows as a conviction on your record.

As a result, a traffic ticket can increase your insurance rates and even limit your ability to drive. If you drive for a living or to get to your workplace, losing your license may cause you to lose your job.

Fortunately, pleading guilty to speeding or another traffic violation is not the only option in most cases. Let Vanhook Law apply their knowledge of the law and the judicial system to effectively represent your interests. In most instances, you will not have to go to court or miss valuable time from work.

Vanhook Law believes that everyone should have a will.  A will is a written document that gives instructions on leaving your assets to those you wish to leave them. In your will, you specifically name individuals and list what you want them to have. Without one, your possessions, money, land, and other things can be left to someone you didn't approve of. Most people underestimate the worth of their estate and overestimate the ability of others to handle it. It can be troublesome for others to deal with. Aside from the financial aspect of a will, choosing how you would like to be buried can be spelled out specifically. Vanhook Law will assist you in helping you decide who benefits from your assets.
