Colonial Heights VA Traffic Lawyer Client Reviews

Mr.Wells really helped me out involving my first offense ever. I trusted him to resolve the issue and he delivered. Thank you again Mr. Wells!

It is without reservation that I recommend Attorney Ed Riley and the legal team of Riley & Wells Attorneys-At-Law. I was arrested for attempting to bribe a police officer and DUI second offense within 5 years. I was terrified and a nervous wreck. In all aspects of their representation, Mr. Riley and the firm conducted themselves in a most competent and professional manner. Also, at a time that was most difficult for me and my family, they were very understanding and sincere in their approach with us. Mr. Riley was able to successfully resolve my case by convincing the prosecution or the Court to have the felony completely dropped and the DUI reduced to a first offense. I could not be more pleased with the representation. This is a first class group who know how to get things done. We wouldn’t hesitate to seek out their counsel in the future should the need arise.

Traffic Violations | Demerit Points | Driving Record | Insurance

When you are convicted of a traffic violation, the court notifies the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV). DMV does the following: Posts the conviction to your driving record; Assigns you demerit points according to the severity of the offense; Issues an order of suspension, if applicable; Issues an order requiring the successful completion of a driver improvement clinic, if applicable; and Notifies your insurance company upon request. Traffic Violations And Demerit Points The following lists present the traffic violations that have demerit points. These violations are grouped according to the number of DMV demerit points assigned to each violation. The number of years that the conviction stays on your DMV record is in parentheses beside each violation. An asterisk (*) indicates that the conviction remains on your record permanently. Six Point Violations Four Point Violations Three Point Violations DMV is not liable for damages that may result from errors on these lists. For a full description of violations and penalties, contact us. This information may change without prior notice. Demerit points will also be assigned to your record for traffic convictions incurred in other states. DMV also posts to your record traffic violations that do not carry demerit points. Length Of Time On Your Record The length of time that a conviction stays on your record depends on the severity of the violation. If you receive an order or notice of revocation, suspension, disqualification or cancellation, your convictions could remain on your record for even longer than specified in one of these lists. DMV demerit points remain on your record for two years from the date that you commit the offense. The dates that demerit points are removed from your driving record are not related to the dates that convictions are removed from your record. Insurance Company Points Your insurance company may also assign points on your insurance record. Insurance company points are developed by individual companies and are not related to DMV demerit points.

Colonial Heights Reckless Driving Speeding 77/55 DISMISSED

colonialheights.radar.GPS.(2)Our Colonial Heights traffic attorneys represented a client from Maryland who was pulled over by a Virginia State Trooper for speeding. The trooper’s L.I.D.A.R. evidence was that our client was traveling 77 miles per hour in a 55 mile per hour zone. In Virginia, evidence of speeding 20 miles or more above the posted speed limit is a violation of the misdemeanor reckless driving law pursuant to Va. Code 46.2-862. Our client could not afford a misdemeanor reckless driving conviction for many reasons. We analyzed our client’s case and presented various arguments to protect her, which we did. We convinced the Court to dismiss the case.

Colonial Heights Suspended License & Reckless Driving REDUCED

Our Colonial Heights VA traffic lawyers represented a client from Midlothian VA who was pulled over by the Colonial Heights police for misdemeanor reckless driving speeding. The Virginia DMV database also showed our client’s driving privilege as suspended. This led to two misdemeanor allegations being issued: 1) Reckless Driving, and 2) Driving on a Suspended License. After reviewing our clients case we were able to develop arguments that protected her. We convinced the Court to dismiss the reckless driving case upon completion of a driver improvement program and to reduce the suspended license allegation to a lesser offense with a small fine only being imposed. If not handled properly, our client could have served a jail sentence and walked away with a significant loss of driving penalty.
