Exceptional Brunswick County VA Traffic Court Representation
The most surprising Virginia traffic law that shocks most is the fact that a motorist can be convicted of criminal misdemeanor Reckless Driving for speeding as little as 16 miles per hour over the limit if the speed evidence is 86 miles per hour in a 70 mile per hour speed zone. The speed limit on Interstate 85 in Brunswick is 70 mph. A conviction for a Virginia traffic violation can post to the driving record for as long as 11 years, cannot be expunged, and can severely jeopardize your freedom, your career, and your driving privileges. NOTE: A summons or traffic ticket is not a conviction.
Possible Brunswick County VA Traffic Court Penalties

Brunswick Reckless Driving Speeding REDUCED
Our Brunswick VA traffic lawyers represented a client from Maryland who was charged with misdemeanor reckless driving speeding 90/70 mph. During our client intake process, our client indicated to us what amounts to the “wrong car” defense. This is where the radar operator captures speed evidence thru the use of his RADAR unit, but sometimes there becomes an issue as to whether the police officer pulled over the correct vehicle. Our attorneys thoroughly and completely analyzed our client’s case and we were able to convince the Judge to reduce the misdemeanor reckless driving allegation down to a minor speeding case. Our client was happy with the outcome. No permanent criminal misdemeanor conviction.
Brunswick Driving on a Suspended Driver’s License DISMISSED
Our Brunswick County traffic lawyers represented a client who was pulled over for speeding in Brunswick County by a Virginia State Trooper. A driver’s license check revealed that our client was driving on a suspended driver’s license in violation of Va. Code 46.2-301, but our client claimed that he did not know his driver’ license was suspended. Nevertheless, the DMV records were showing his driving privileges were suspended. We advised our client what we needed to do and how we would proceed to best defend the allegation. On the trial date, we made arguments that persuaded the Brunswick Judge to dismiss the suspended driver’s license case.
Brunswick VA I-85 Traffic Violations
A traffic offense does not have to be a misdemeanor criminal offense for there to be negative consequences. Many Brunswick VA Traffic Tickets are often only punishable by a fine, court costs and DMV demerit points. In many cases, we can resolve our client’s Virginia Uniform Summons and/or speeding ticket in such a manner that protects both the driving record and the automobile insurance policy. Our Brunswick VA Traffic Lawyers will work hard to obtain you the best possible result.
