Myrtle Beach Traffic Attorney

Trent Chambers is a Myrtle Beach traffic violations and speeding ticket defense lawyer and a former traffic court prosecutor who has been representing residents and visitors in South Carolina who have been charged with traffic violations and speeding tickets for the past 13 years. I have earned a reputation throughout the Myrtle Beach area as the attorney who understands how the traffic violation laws work, and how to defend you against the damage a violation can do to your record and insurance premiums.

Traffic Violations Defense

Speeding Ticket Defense

If you receive a speeding ticket in South Carolina, you can receive up to six moving violation points for driving twenty-five miles per hour above the posted speed limit. On a twelve point driving point system, that can mean that you are already half way to having your license suspended for up to one year. If you are a North Carolina resident, you can have your license suspended for up to thirty days for driving just fifteen miles over the speed limit.

If you are visiting the area and receive a speeding ticket that requires a court appearance, we will represent you in court, so you don't have to make a return trip.

At the criminal defense and traffic violations law office of Trenton H. Chambers, P.A., we believe the penalties for speeding are worth an aggressive defense, especially when you consider that your driver's license may be at stake. Mr. Chambers is a former traffic court prosecutor who understands the importance of a good defense in the court room. If you have been charged with speeding in Horry, Georgetown, Marion, or Florence counties call us today at 843-692-7953.


Based on a 12-point system

<10 mph over the limit: 2 point violation

10 24 mph over the limit: 4 point violation

+25 mph over the limit: 6 point violation and reckless driving charge

What does the traffic violation point system mean?

All states have some form of a point system for moving violations. The system works on the principle that after accumulation of a certain number of points, a person's driver's license can be revoked or suspended. For visitors from out of state, points are transferred to your home state, if your state is a member of the Non-Resident Motorist Violators Compact. Perhaps just as importantly to first-time offenders, points received often affect your driver's insurance premiums.

If you have been stopped for a traffic violation, you may wonder why hiring an attorney to defend you is important. Many people simply pay the fine. Depending upon your past driving record, paying the fine may be the most cost effective thing to do. But if you are concerned that points against your license will be costly, contact the Myrtle Beach traffic ticket lawyer Trenton H. Chambers. We can help save you time, money, and a possible suspended license.

Don't waste time standing in line or sitting through court, if you need a traffic violation or speeding ticket attorney  in the Myrtle Beach area call the Chambers Law Firm today at (843) 692-7953.
