Handling Traffic Cases in the following Counties in Virginia:
Receiving a speeding ticket is nerve wracking enough, but receiving a reckless driving ticket is terrifying! In Virginia, traveling more than 20 miles over the speed limit, traveling at 81+ miles per hour, or driving too fast for weather conditions is considered reckless driving. A reckless driving ticket is more than a glorified speeding ticket; it is a class 1 misdemeanor, and can result up to 12 months in jail and a fine up to $2,500.00 plus state-mandated court costs. If convicted of reckless driving as a Virginia Licensed Driver, not only do you have a criminal record, but you also will have six points on your driving record which will stay there for 11 years.
The key to defeating a reckless driving speeding ticket is to hire an attorney who that is familiar with the area, the Judge who that sits on the bench, and also the Commonwealth's Attorneys. It is important to hire an attorney who knows how the Judge thinks in order to take appropriate action and appear in court prepared and ready to defend you. Choosing an attorney who is the right fit for you is the most important choice you will make when it comes to reckless driving. You need attorney that will not just stand in for you, but defend you. Many attorneys don't take the time out of their day to get to know and understand how important it is to you to have the reckless driving ticket out of the way. Some people if convicted can loose their jobs, security clearance, and their ability to drive to and from work, which all effect you and your household. I prides herself on knowing what is important to you and your family and why. Reckless driving is a serious offense in the state of Virginia; a class 1 misdemeanor is something that can have serious consequences ranging from a huge fine, to having driving privileges suspended, to jail time, and not to mention a criminal record.
Many out of state residents who are just passing through Virginia find themselves victim to these "speed traps"; what is just a simple speeding violation in their home state turns in to a reckless driving charge. Trying to fight the ticket yourself is an option, however it means that you would have to take off work, drive all the way back to Virginia, not to mention pay for a place to stay for the night and food, and on top of that you have to sit in the courtroom which can take hours. There is always a chance that the Judge may reduce your charge, however if requested to do community service, driving school, or other requirements then you will have to return to court for a control date to make sure that you have satisfied with the Judges demands. Another risk is that you drive all the way to Virginia and find out that they will not be able to try your case due to the officer not being able to be in court. This is where hiring an attorney is beneficial. I will be able to stand in for you and if the officer is sick or absent for any reason, the Judges sets a control date or any number of things that can come up I will go back time and time again until your case is finalized for one flat fee.
